One day, a farmer’s mother-in-law came to visit his farm. A few days later, she was killed when the mule on the farm kicked her.
Thousands of people from town who had heard about the death came to the poor lady’s funeral – some that the farmer did not even know. A minister noticed this, came up to the farmer, and asked, “Why are there so many people here?”
The farmer answered, “Oh, they aren’t here for the funeral. They want to buy the mule!”
