The Best Way To Settle Disputes

A big city lawyer went duck hunting in rural North Wairarapa.

Eventually he shot down a bird, but it fell into a farmer’s field on the other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over it, the elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing. The litigator responded, “I shot a duck and it fell into 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 am one of the best trial attorneys in New Zealand 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 North Wairarapa. We settle small disagreements like this with the ‘Three Kick Rule.'” 

The lawyer asked, “What is the ‘Three Kick Rule’?” 

The Farmer replied, “Well, because the dispute occurred on my land, I get to go 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 lawyer 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 remaining strength and very slowly managed to get to his feet. Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said, “Okay, you old fart. Now it’s my turn.” 

The old farmer smiled and said, “Know what? You can take the duck.”

The Blonde Sports Coach

A blonde gets a job as a physical education teacher of 16 year olds.

She notices a boy at the end of the field standing alone, while all the other kids are running around having fun kicking a football.

She takes pity on him and decides to go over and speak to him.

“You ok?” she says.

“Yes,” he says.

“You can go and play with the other kids you know,” she says.

“It’s best I stay here,” he says.

“Why’s that sweetie?” says the blonde.

The boy looks at her incredulously and says:- “Because I’m the goal keeper, that’s why!!!”

This problem is not mathematical, but rather philosophical.

It proves that, in spite of what the modern “progressive” philosophers tell us, not all viewpoints are equally valid; in most cases, there is only one point of view that leads to the right answer.

This test problem is, in fact, an optical illusion; it misleads us into judging the reality from the wrong perspective.
