A big city lawyer went duck hunting.


A big city lawyer went duck hunting. 

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 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 indignant lawyer said: “I am one of the best trial attorneys in the country 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 settle disputes here. We settle small disagreements like this with the ‘Three Kick Rule.'”

The lawyer asked: “What is the ‘Three Kick Rule’?”

The farmer replied: “Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, I get to go first. I kick you three times and then you kick me three times and so on back and forth until someone gives up.”
