So the farmer went into the courtroom. "Were you, or were you not hurt in the accident?" asked the judge, I was sir, the trooper yelled "thats a lie!, he told me he was fine" "Is this true?" asked the judge "Yes" replied the farmer, "I will ask you again farmer, were you or were you not hurt in the accident?" asked the judge again, "Yes" replied the farmer. "Farmer Joe, tell the judge what really happened at the scene of the accident." said his attorney, "Well I was driving along a dusty road, and it was raining really hard, and I was carrying my cow Dorothy in the trailer behind the truck. When all of a sudden I hit a pothole and I went flying to the left and Dorothy went flying to the right. That's when thte trooper cam up to Dorothy and asked her if she was alright, she was not and he could tell, so he shot her between the eyes, then he came walking over to me, and asked me if I was alright and I told him yes, I was alright." said the farmer, "Well why did you tell him you were alright when you really weren't?" asked the judge "The guy had a pistol at my head, I wasn't going to tell him I was not alright!"
