At the Funeral

     Once upon a time there was a woman married to a very annoying and snobbish man named Steve.  He would complain about everything. That day he went to their creek with his mule.  He complained so much that the mule soon got annoyed and kicked him to death.

     At the funeral, when all the men walked by the widow she shook her head yes, and every time the women walked by she shook her head no.  The minister asked "Why are you shaking your head yes for men and no for women?"  Her response was, "The men would say how sorry they felt for me and I was saying, 'Yes, Iíll be alright.'  When the women walked by, they were asking if the mule is for sale . . .
