Making an Ass of myself.
I'm feeling kind of lazy right now, so rather than do any research, I'm going to just post this joke that a friend sent me in its entirety:
An old farmer had a wife who nagged him unmercifully. From morning till night she was always complaining about something. The only time he managed any piece was when he was out plowing with his old mule. Needless to say he plowed a lot!
One day whilst he was out plowing the fields, his wife brought him lunch. He led the old mule to a shaded spot, sat down on a stump and began to eat. Immediately, his wife began nagging him. Complain... nag... complain... nag! It just went on and on and on. Suddenly, the old mule lashed out with both hind feet and caught his wife smack in the back of the head. She dropped dead on the spot.
At the funeral several days later, the minister noticed something rather odd. When women mourners approached the old farmer... he would listen for a minute and then nod his head in agreement. When the men mourners approached him... he would listen for a minute and then shake his head in disagreement. It was so unusual that the minister decided that he would ask the old farmer what it was all about. After the funeral, he approached the bereaved farmer and asked him to explain. "Why did you nod your head in agreement with the women but shake your head in disagreement with the men"... asked the minister?
The old farmer replied... "Well, the women all came up to comment on how nice my wife looked or how pretty her dress was... so I nodded my head in agreement."
"And what about all of the men?" the minister asked.
"Oh the men... they just wanted to know if the mule was for sale!!"
