the question reminds me of a story.
There was a New York attorney hunting birds in Wyoming. As one flushed he shot it, but watched helplessly as the bird flew over a fence clearly marked “NO Trespassing” and landed, dead, only 20 yards inside a farmer’s field. The thought only a minute and headed to the fence. As he started to climb the fence the old farmer drove up in is 1983 Ford pickup, and asked just what that man thought he was doing climbing the fence right next to the “NO Trespassing” sign.
The lawyer explained that the law of the hunt clearly allowed him to recover any game animal he shot, if it was not shot while he was trespassing.
The old farmer said he wasn’t to sure about what the law was back east, but out in the west “ We use the two kick rule to settle these disagreements.”
“What is that?” asked the attorney.
“Well,” the farmer explained, “I kick you twice, then you kick me twice, and so on. . . until one of us gives up. That way we know which one really deserves to get his way.”
The lawyer looked over the old man, realized he was much younger, in seeming better shape, and really wanted that beautiful pheasant he had shot . . . “Deal!”
The farmer kicked the lawyer right between the legs. The pain was terrible, he could hardly breath. Thoughts of revenge took root in his mind. The second blow came to his chin, as he was bent over recovering from the first kick, knocking him to the ground in a burst of stars. As he stood all he could think about was it was his turn, ad he would show this old hillbilly what a mules kick would feel like.
“Ahhh! You win, take the stupid bird.” He climbed into the truck and drove away.
