Is the mule for sale?

Posted by Luminus on January 24, 2006

An old hillbilly farmer had a wife who nagged him unmercifully.
From  morning till night (and sometimes later), she was always
complaining about something. The only time he got any relief was
when he was out plowing with his old mule. He tried to plow a lot.

One day, when he was out plowing, his wife brought him lunch in the
field.  He drove the old mule into the shade, sat down on a stump,
and began to eat his lunch. Immediately, his wife began haranguing
him again. Complain, nag, nag; it just went on and on.

All of a sudden, the old mule lashed out with
both hind feet; caught her smack in the back of the head.

Killed her dead on the spot.

At the funeral several days later, the minister noticed something
rather odd. When a woman mourner would approach the old farmer, he
would listen for a minute, then nod his head in agreement; but when
a man mourner approached him, he would listen for a minute,
then shake his head in disagreement. This was so consistent, the
minister decided to ask the old farmer about it.

So after the funeral, the minister spoke to the old farmer, and
asked him why he nodded his head and agreed with the women, but
always shook his head and disagreed with all the men.

The old farmer said: “Well, the women would come up and say
something about how nice my wife looked, or how pretty her dress
was, so I’d nod my head in agreement.”

“And what about the men?” the minister asked.

“They all wanted to know if the mule was for sale.”
