Kicking Off The New Year...
A newlywed farmer and his wife were visited by her
mother, who immediately demanded an inspection
of the place. The farmer had genuinely tried to be
friendly to his new mother-in-law, hoping that it could
be a friendly, non-antagonistic relationship. All to no
avail though, as she kept nagging them at every
opportunity, demanding changes, offering unwanted
advice and generally making life unbearable to the
farmer and his new bride.
While they were walking through the barn, during the forced inspection, the farmer's mule suddenly reared up and kicked the mother-in-law in the head, killing her instantly. It was a shock to all no matter their feelings toward her demanding ways.
At the funeral service a few days later, the farmer stood near the casket and greeted folks as they walked by. The pastor noticed that whenever a woman would whisper something to the farmer, he would nod his head yes and say something. Whenever a man walked by and whispered to the farmer, however, he would shake his head no and mumble a reply.
Very curious as to this bizarre behaviour, the pastor later asked the farmer what that was all about.
The farmer explained, "Well, the women would say, 'What a terrible tragedy' and I would nod my head and say, 'Yes, it was.' The men would ask, 'Can I borrow that mule?' and I would shake my head and say, 'Can't, it's all booked up for a year.'"
