5100 - Long joke Sunday

A Lawyer goes shooting and brings down a marvelous pheasant right on Farmer Joe's field. 

Knowing the law, he goes over to the farmhouse and knocks on the door, farmer Joe opens, and the Lawyer says, "Excuse me sir, but I'm a lawyer on a shoot, and I happen to have brought down a fairly marvelous pheasant over in your field yonder. Being a lawyer, I know the law, and that I'm to ask the landowners permission before I retrieve game." 

Farmer Joe looks over the lawyer's shoulder and sees the pheasant. "Well... it is a pretty nice one. Tell you what, we can play Ro-sham-Bo for it. Winner keeps it". 

The Lawyer is taken aback. "RO-SHAM-BO? I'm afraid in all my years in prestigious law schools, I'm afraid I never encountered the concept. What are the rules?"  

"Well," the farmer began, "we each take turns kicking each other in the bollocks, the one who gives up first loses." 

The lawyer doesn't like the sound of this at all, but he really wants the pheasant. 

"Alright, I'll do it. Err... who goes first?" 

"I kick first cos it's my land," says the farmer. 

The lawyer consents to stand on the porch, legs apart, and braces himself. 

Farmer Joe takes several steps back, breaks into a run, and then swings his boot full force at the lawyer's crotch. Lifted full off the ground, the lawyer crumples into a heap and takes a couple of minutes to get his bearings back, sobbing and cursing on the floor, before slowly straining to stand. 

"Very well," remarks the lawyer, "my turn." 

"Nah, you can keep the pheasant", replies farmer Joe, and slams the door.

I suspect that more than once person would love to deliver such a kick to a lawyer...

Bilbo said...

Can you please direct me to the end of the line?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Good one, LOL! Not for the lawyer, of course, but still.

Mike said...

Sue - A lot more than one... and more than once.

Bill - You remember those voting lines in Georgia?

Deb - Hmmmm, I don't know. I think it was a good lesson for the lawyer.

I wonder if the "Ro-Sham-Bo game had anything to do with General Rochambeau?

The greatest contribution that Rochambeau gave during the Yorktown campaign, where, together with George Washington, forced a large British army led by Charles Cornwallis to surrender. In particular, he helped defeat the British, bringing in French troops.
