Shmuel had a bad car accident involving a large truck. Weeks later, in court, the trucking company’s fancy lawyer was questioning Shmuel.
“Didn’t you say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine,” asked the lawyer.
Shmuel responded, “Vell, I’ll tell you vat happened. I just put my dog Moshele, into the…”
“I didn’t ask for any details,” the lawyer interrupted. “Just answer the question.”
Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine!’?”
Shmuel said, “Vell, I just got Moshele into the car and I vas driving down the road…”
“The lawyer interrupted again and said, “Judge, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman on the scene that he was just fine. Now several weeks after the accident he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question.”
By this time, the Judge was fairly interested in Shmuel’s answer and said to the lawyer, “I’d like to hear what he has to say about his dog Moshele.”
Shmuel thanked the Judge and proceeded.
Vell, like I vas saying, I just loaded Moshele, my lovely hundteleh (dog), into the car and vas driving him down the highway when this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and smacked my truck right in the side. I vas thrown into one ditch and Moshele vas thrown into the other. I vas hurting, real bad and didn’t want to move. However, I heard Moshele moaning and groaning. I knew he vas in terrible shape just by his groans.
Den a Highway Patrolman came along. He could hear Moshele moaning and groaning so he vent over to him. After he looked at him, and saw vat terrible condition Moshele was in, he took out his gun and shoots him between the eyes.
Den the Patrolman comes across the road, gun still in hand, looks at me and says, ” How you feeling?”
“Nu, Judge, so vat vould you say?
