Tennessee Three Kick Rule.....

Tennessee Three Kick Rule.....

A big city Ohio lawyer went deer hunting in rural Tennessee. He shot a deer and it ran for a little ways, 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 deer, it ran into this field and fell, and now 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 deer, I'll sue you for everything you own." The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we do things in Tennessee. We settle small disagreements like this with the Tennessee three Kick Rule." The lawyer asked, "What is the Tennessee 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 attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. 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 lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees. His second kick nearly ripped the man's nose off his face. The barrister was flat on his belly when the farmer's third kick to the kidney nearly caused him to give up. The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet and said, "Okay, you old coot, now it's my turn."

(I love this part)

The old farmer smiled and said, "Naw, I give up. You can have the dang deer."

Would you mind if we used that in Kentucky? I know of a few that really need that kind of "litigation"!

I laughed at that as hard as the first time I heard it. and have told it several times. While reading it today I just had a good in fact,in my opinion, a GREAT Idea. Lets use this method instead of the kawkawsis and prymyeyes to pick a candidate for president. I would recomend Dennis Miller to do the analyisis. That way they could have a fund raiser {I am sure many would pay to see this} and make the decision at the same time. We would eliminate all that travel {helping the enviroment} and free up more TV space {allowing more reruns of Hogan's Heros and such} And would not have to listen to all those polls as this would settle it once for all. I respectfully submitt this {fingers crossed} for you serious consideration { fingers crossed again}.

I can see where that rule could be real fun to use, especially on a lawyer.
