Lawyer, Duck and the old Rancher

OK, I have to start today’s blog with a joke. If you see this on face book you will need to Click on the subject line and then below click “View Original Post”. The text is just too long for the face book note. That will quickly take you to my blog. Hope you enjoy it!

A lawyer went duck hunting in Western MT. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a Ranchers field on the other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly cowboy asked him what he was doing. The lawyer responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this field, I'm going into retrieve it." The old cowboy replied. "This is my property, and you are not coming over here." The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial attorneys in the U.S. and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything! The old rancher smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we do things here in Montana. We settle small disagreements like this with the Three-Kick Rule." The lawyer asked, "What is the three-Kick Rule?" The Rancher replied. "Well, first I kick you three times and then you kick me three times, and so on, back and forth, until someone gives up." The cocky attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old cowboy. He agreed to abide by the local custom. The old rancher slowly climbed off his horse and walked up to the city feller. His first kick planted the toe of his boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees. His second kick nearly wiped the man's nose off his face. The bloodied attorney was flat on his belly when the old cowboys third kick to a kidney nearly caused him to give up. The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet and said, "Okay, you old redneck cowboy, now it's my turn." The old Montana rancher smiled and said, "Naw, I give up. You can have the duck."
