Post A big-city, California lawyer............

went duck hunting in rural Texas. He shot and dropeed a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of the fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing.

The litigator responded " I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it."

The old farmer replied "This is my property, and you are not coming over here."

The lawyer, now indignant 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 you own."

The old farmer smiled and said,
" Apparently, you don't know how we do things in Texas, we settle small disagreements like this with the Texas Three-Kick Rule."

The lawyer asked, "What is the Texas Three-Kick Rule?"

The farmer 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 attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided he could easily take the old codger, after all, he must be 80 years old, and so he agreed to abide by local custom.

The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the city fella. His first kick planted the toe of his cowboy boot into the lawyer's groin which dropped him to his knees. His second kick nearly wiped the nose off the man's face. At this point the lawyer is flat on his belly when the farmer's third kick is straight to his ribs. At this point the lawyer can barely breath but manages to get to his feet.

With every bit of strength the lawyer could summon, he approached the farmer and said
"Okay, old man now its my turn."


The Farmer smiled and said " Naw, I give up.
You can have the duck
