The kicker
 
A Yankee lawyer went duck hunting in eastern North
Carolina. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell
into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence.

As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an
elderly gentleman asked him what he was doing.
The lawyer responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in
this field, I'm going in to retrieve it."

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

The lawyer asked,
"What is the 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 Yankee attorney quickly thought about the
proposed contest and decided that he could
easily take the old southerner. He agreed to abide
by the local custom.

The old farmer slowly climbed down from
the tractor and walked up to the city feller.
His first kick planted the toe of his heavy work
boot into the Yankee lawyer's groin and dropped him
to his knees. His second kick nearly wiped the man's
nose off his face. The barrister was flat on his belly
when the farmer's third kick to a kidney nearly
caused him to give up.


The Yankee lawyer summoned every bit of his
will and managed to get to his feet and said,
"Okay, you old redneck southerner, now it's my turn."

The old North Carolina farmer smiled and said,
"Naw, I give up. You can have the duck."

Pass This One Along,
It's A Kicker!
