Friends for Sale
A farmer was detained for questioning about an election scandal.
“Did you sell your vote?” the attorney asked.
“No sir, not me,” the farmer protested. “I voted for that there fella ’cause I liked him.”
“Come, now,” threatened the attorney. “I have evidence that he gave you fifty dollars for a vote.”
“Well, now,” the farmer said, “it’s plain common sense that when a fella gives you fifty dollars you like him.”
