An Irish farmer named Seamus had a car accident.
In court, the lorry company's hot-shot solicitor was questioning Seamus.
'Didn't you say to the Police at the scene of the accident,
'I'm fine?' asked the solicitor.
'Well, I'll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite cow, Bessie, into the...'
'I didn't ask for any details', the solicitor interrupted.
'Just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident,'I'm fine!'?'
Seamus, 'Well, I had just got Bessie into the trailer and I was driving down the road...'
The solicitor interrupted again,
'Your Honour, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the police on the scene that he was fine. Now several weeks after the accident, he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question.'
By this time, the Judge was fairly interested in Seamus's answer
and said to the solicitor:
'I'd like to hear what he has to say about his favorite cow, Bessie'.
Seamus thanked the Judge and proceeded.
'Well as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favourite cow, into the trailer and was driving her down the road when this huge lorry and trailer came through a stop sign and hit my trailer right in the side. I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other. I was hurt, very bad like, and didn't want to move.
However, I could hear old Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible pain just by her groans.
Shortly after the accident, a policeman on a motorbike turned up. He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he went over to her. After he looked at her and saw her condition, he shook his head saying ...'this cow's in bad shape'... and taking out his gun, shot her between the eyes.
Then the policeman came across the road, gun still in hand, looked me, and said, 'How are you feeling?'
'Now, your Honor, what would you have said?'
