A big-city, California, lawyer went duck hunting in rural Texas.
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 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 the U.S. and,
if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own."

you don't know how we do things in Texas. We settle small disagreements like this with the Texas Three-Kick Rule."
lawyer asked, "What is the Texas Three-Kick Rule?"
The farmer replied, "Well, 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 farmer and agreed to abide by the local custom.
farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the city feller. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy
work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees. His second kick nearly wiped the man's nose off his face.
The barrister was flat on his belly when the farmer's third kick to a kidney nearly caused him to give up. But the lawyer
summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet and said, "Okay, you old coot! Now, it's my turn!"
old farmer smiled and said, "Nope, I give up. You can have the duck."
