The Mule and the Mother-in-Law.
A newlywed farmer and his wife were visited by her mother, who immediately demanded an inspection of their home. The farmer had genuinely tried to be friendly to his new mother-in-law, hoping that it could be a friendly, non-antagonistic relationship.
To no avail, she kept nagging them at every opportunity, demanding changes, offering unwanted advice and making life unbearable for the farmer and his new bride.While they were walking through the barn, the farmer’s mule suddenly reared up and kicked the mother-in-law in the head killing her instantly.
At the funeral service a few days later, the farmer stood near the casket and greeted folks as they walked by. The pastor noticed that whenever a woman would whisper something to the farmer, he would nod his head and say something. Whenever a man walked by and whispered to the farmer, however, he would shake his head and mumble a reply.
Very curious as to this bizarre behaviour, the pastor later asked the farmer what that was all about. The farmer replied, “the women would say, “What a terrible tragedy” and I would nod and say, yes, it was.” The men would ask, “Can I borrow that mule?” and I would shake my head and say:
“Sorry, I can’t do it…it’s booked up for a year….”
