Three Kick Rule

A lawyer went duck hunting in rural Minnesota. 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 lawyer 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'm one of the best trial attorneys in
California 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 in Minnesota. We settle small disagreements like this with the
Minnesota Three Kick Rule."

The lawyer asked, "What's that?"

The farmer replied, "Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, 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
attorney. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel-toed work boot
into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees. His second kick to 
the midriff sent the lawyer's last meal gushing from his mouth.
The barrister was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to his rear end
sent him face-first into a fresh cow pie. The lawyer summoned every bit of
his will and managed to get to his feet. Wiping his face with the arm of 
his jacket, he said, "Okay, you old coot. Now it's my turn."

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