Defense attorney and a farmer

The following is a courtroom exchange between a defense attorney and a farmer with a
bodily injury claim. It came from a Houston, Texas insurance agent.

Defense Attorney: “At the scene of the accident, did you tell the officer you had never felt better in your life?”

Farmer: “That's right.”

Defense Attorney: “Well, then, how is it that you are now claiming you were seriously injured
when my client's auto hit your wagon?”

Farmer: “When the officer arrived, he went over to my horse, who had a broken leg,
and shot him. Then he went over to roller, my dog, who was all banged up, and shot him.

When he asked me how I felt, I just thought under the circumstances, it was a wise choice
of words to say I've never felt better in my life.”
