|The court was
listening to the testimony of Bart's wife, who was seeking a divorce.
"Tell me explicitly,"
the judge directed the woman, "What fault you have found with your husband."

a 3rd floor balcony rail proclaiming you were going to fly around the building."

"Well, you see,"
said Jack, "At the time, I thought you could do it."
several hours in one of his branch offices, Bart crossed the street to
visit another of his favorite establishments. As he entered, he was
feeling extremely attractive and charming and his gaze immediately locked
onto an attractive woman sitting alone at the bar. He slithered up
behind her, tapped her on the shoulder, and when she turned, he kissed

"What are you

Bart answered, "What do you think I'm doing? I'm making sure they spelled
my name right."
|On a dark night,
Bart stumbled out of a country bar a little after midnight and took a wrong
turn. Instead of going to his car, he headed downhill towards the
nearby creek. About 50 feet before he got to the creek, he hit a
lone standing tree head-on. He got up, did a 360, and WHAM -- He
hit the tree again. This happened 3 or 4 more times. His nose
was bleeding, one eye was swelling shut, and his face generally looked
like he'd shaved with a rasp.

frustration, he wailed mournfully, "Damn the luck -- Promised the wife

with some guys with money to lease and stock a ranch. Bart's contribution
to the deal was his "expertise" and he hired a Mexican crew to go around
the fences. He loaded the crew foreman into his pickup to show him

you can drive this pickup for an hour and still not make it to the backside
of the ranch."
said, "I understand, Senor -- I used to have a pickup like that."
|At 1:30 AM,
Bart was headed home from one of his patented "business meetings" and was
stopped by a policeman for failing to signal a lane change.

Where are you going at this time of the night?"
Bart said, “I
am going to attend a lecture about alcohol abuse and consorting with wild

asked, “Really? Who's giving that lecture this late?”
Matter of factly,
Bart replied, “My wife.”

and was now completely broke. Taking pity on him, a local rancher
hired him as a ranch hand to give him a chance to get back on his feet.

"No, I had to sell about everything I owned."
Taking him out
to the tack room, the rancher said, "Here's a saddle you can use.
You'll be doctoring calves in the pasture, so you'll need a rope.
Get one from those hanging over there on the wall."
Trying to appear
knowledgeable, Bart carefully examined several ropes before choosing one,
and then asked, "What are you using for bait?"

regrouped at a local tavern to exchange insults, exaggerations, and lies.

with another cattle buyer on a big deal, and when the deal closed, they
took their wives out to dinner to celebrate. The other cattle buyer
noticed that each time Bart spoke to his wife, he addressed her with terms
of endearment such as "Darlin", "Sweetheart", "Honey", etc.
When the wives
were away from the table, the other cattle buyer remarked that it was really
nice that after all of the years or marriage, Bart still called her the
little pet names.
to make sure no one was listening, Bart responded, "She seems to like it,
but actually the reason is that I keep forgetting her name."

It If You Need It' and set it out on the lawn next to the street.
There's bound to be a young couple just starting out that can use it."
However, a week
later the dryer was still out on the lawn and Bart decided it was time
for him to work his magic. He told his wife, "Twenty years of tradin'
cattle has taught me all there is to know about people and marketing.
Asking nothing for something tells people it's worth nothing. Watch
the master and learn."
to change the sign to read, "Outstanding Dryer with Lots of Years of Dependable

When he got
home that evening, he noticed the dryer was gone so he entered the house
and triumphantly asked his wife, "Who's the best and why am I ? Tradin'

for it ?"
With a smirk
on her face, she said, "Nothing."
"What did you do? Give it away when you had a cash customer?"

not to laugh, she answered, "I have to hand it to you, Bart -- You really

|Bart had a
falling-out with the insurance company that carried his livestock bond
and was filling out an application for a bond with a different company.
One section on the application asked:
Have you been
convicted of a felony? There was a box labeled "NO" followed by a
box labeled "Yes" with an area labeled "Why" to provide details in the
event the applicant had been convicted of a felony.
"NO", and then in the "Why" section below the "Yes" box, answered honestly:

head, Bart said, "I'd like to see something more special."
With $$$$ in
his eyes, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring
over. "Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000," he said.
eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. Smiling
fondly at the blonde, Bart said decisively, "We'll take it."
asked how payment would be made and Bart stated, "By check. I know you
need to make sure my check clears so I'll write it now, and you can call
the bank on Monday morning to verify the funds and I'll pickup the ring
On Monday morning,
the jeweler phoned Bart and nervously said, "Sir, your bank just advised
me there are insufficient funds in your account to cover your check."
"Yeah, I know,"
said Bart, "But I had a real good weekend."
|Bart woke up
with the realization it was his birthday. He headed downstairs for
breakfast hoping his wife would be pleasant and say “Happy Birthday” and
possibly have a gift for him. As it turned out, she was getting ready to
leave and only said, “Jane called yesterday and needs you to be at her
office this afternoon at 4:30 with your records so she can get your bond
Jane was one
of Bart’s wife’s best friends and owned the insurance agency that handled
Bart’s bond. Promptly at 4:30, Bart was there with a couple of boot
boxes stuffed with his records from last year. Jane sorted through
the contents, asked a few questions, and then said, “I’ll look this over
tomorrow and call if I have any more questions. I noticed today’s
your birthday and it’s about quitting time. Let’s go have a drink.”
They had a couple
of drinks and on the way back to her office, Jane told Bart that she needed
to stop by her house. When they arrived, she invited him in and said,
“I need to go into the bedroom for just a moment. Make yourself comfortable.”
She went into
the bedroom, and after a couple of minutes, came out carrying a huge birthday
cake. She was followed by his wife and dozens of his friends all
singing “Happy Birthday.”
Bart broke into
tears as he sat on the couch in his underwear.
|The sale was
over and Bart and his associates congregated at a nearby watering hole.
They slid some tables together and it was bedlam with people coming and
going and all talking at the same time. A cell phone rang and Bart
snatched it up, engaged the hands-free speaker-function and answered. Everyone
at the table stopped talking to listen.

Bart: "OK, but

then go ahead and give them an offer, but only for $650,000."

I love you, too."
Bart ended the
call and there was complete silence as everyone stared at him with astonishment
and awe. Bart held up the phone and innocently asked. “Anyone know whose
phone this is?”
|At 1:00, the
auctioneer announced they were going to run dairy cattle for about an hour.
Bart and several of his associates took advantage of the opportunity to
eat lunch in the sale ring’s café. One of the guys mentioned
that his wedding anniversary was rapidly approaching and he was under intense
pressure to get the right gift, since he forgot it last year.
his anniversary reminded him of something and he said, “As I recall, Bart,
your anniversary is this month too. You gonna do anything special?”
With a far away
look in his eyes, Bart replied, “Two years ago, I took my wife out
to Las Vegas. I’m thinking this year I might go back and get her.”
|Bart was at
one of his branch offices, this one more commonly know as the “No Dogs
Allowed Inn” when a guy stormed in, sat down next to him, and said, “I
want some of my money back on that load of steers I bought from you on
the guy a moment and asked, “Was the head count wrong or were some of them
sick coming off the truck?”
“No,” the guy
“Are any of them blind, crippled, or locoed?”
the guy said, “NO – They’re healthy and doing fine.”
Bart said. “What’s the problem?”
the guy answered, “They’re telling me that some of them don’t have enough
frame to gain well, the shrink should have been 3% instead of 2%, and the
slide should have been higher on the deal.”

looked at those steers. They were in a 40 acre trap and you saw every
one of them. As for the shrink and slide, I always try to make the
best deal for myself as I can because I assume the other guy is trying
to do the same. Your signed contract is on my dashboard. If
you’re going to be in the cattle business, you need to learn that just
because you got out-traded, you weren’t cheated.”
|During a lull in the action while
the ring was emptied of cattle and the next group brought in, the auctioneer
read from a note he had just received, "Hey guys, a gentleman lost his
wallet and is offering a $2,000 reward if you find it."
Bart immediately deduced there must
be a wad of cash in the lost wallet and he began frantically waving at
the auctioneer who asked, "Did you find it, Bart?"
"Nope" Bart said. "I'm bidding
viewed it as an occupational hazard, his recent DWI had been a major inconvenience.
In addition to a 30 day suspension of his driver’s license and a significant
fine, he also had to complete a Substance Abuse course, including passing
a final exam.
Only a few minutes
into the test, Bart realized that he should have studied a little more.
Decades of playing high-stakes poker and making high-pressure cattle trades
had conditioned him not to panic. He shrewdly attached a $100 bill to the
back of his test with a note reading, “$1 per point” and with a knowing
wink to the instructor, confidently handed in his test.
A week later,
Bart received the test results in the mail. He tore open the envelope
and found his test results and $61.00 in cash.
|Bart was explaining his 'Buffalo
Theory' to a young cattle buyer. "You see, Chad, it's like this --
A buffalo herd can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the
herd is attacked by predators, it's the slowest and weakest ones at the
back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd
as a whole because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps
improving by the regular killing of the weakest members."
He took several sips of his beverage,
primarily Jack Daniels, before continuing, "In much the same way, the human
brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake
of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the
slowest and weakest brain cells first. So, consuming copious amounts
of alcohol on a regular basis eliminates the weaker brain cells, making
the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's how I've been able
to keep myself so savvy and sharp."
|Bart was receiving cattle several
hundred miles from home and was in the motel lounge the night before.
He couldn’t help but notice an attractive woman sitting alone at the end
of the bar.
He slithered over, sat down next to
her, and suavely asked, “Where have you been all my life?"
"Well," she said, "For the first half
of it, I wasn't even born."
|With a whip in one hand and a hot-shot
in the other, Bart was trying to get some yearlings to load onto the scale.
Having had enough, an 800 lb. steer turned and ran over Bart. The
other 21 head did the same, leaving Bart somewhat tamped into the ground.
Several cowboys helped him up and Bart immediately began complaining loudly
that he hurt every place he touched. They rushed Bart to the emergency
room where he was examined by a doctor.
“Doc, I’m hurt bad. No matter
where I touch, the pain is terrible.” To prove his point, Bart touched
his left arm and squealed in pain. Then he touched his right knee
and the sharp intake of breath left no doubt that the pain was intense.
Baffled, the doctor ordered x-rays.
After looking at the x-rays, the doctor returned to the examination room
where Bart was anxiously awaiting the results.
The doctor said, “Bart, you’re going
to need surgery.”
“Oh my gawd,” Bart whimpered.
“Am I going to make it, Doc?”
“I think so,” said the doctor.
“You have a severely broken finger.”
|Bart promised his wife he would be
home from a sale 30 miles away in time to go to her office Christmas party.
However, he managed to stumble in after midnight and this led to a huge
argument. They ended up not talking to each other for days.
Finally, on the 6th day, Bart asked her where one of his shirts was.
"Oh," she said, "So now you're speaking
Confused, Bart asked, "What are you
"Haven't you noticed I haven't spoken
to you for six days?" she challenged.
"No," he said sincerely, "I just thought
we were finally getting along."
|Bart had been on the road for 2 weeks
finishing the fall run and when he got home, he made dinner reservations
at a fine restaurant for his wife and himself. When he went to see
why his wife was taking so long getting ready, he found her standing in
front of a full-length mirror in the bedroom.
“Bart, I look fat, ugly, and old.
Everything is going wrong with my body” she stated matter of factually.
Now, if there is anything Bart knows
better than cattle and the cattle market, it is women. He instinctually
realized she was expecting a compliment and the evening would be a living
Hell if he failed to deliver.
“Darlin’, that’s just not true,” he
said in his most soothing tone. “Why, your eyesight is still darned
|Late one evening, Bart heard some
strange noises outside. He peered out the back door and saw 2 or
3 guy stealing things out of his barn.
He phoned the police and was asked,
"Have they made an attempt to enter your house?"
Slightly miffed by the question, Bart
replied, "No -- But they haven't emptied the barn yet."
The dispatcher said all patrols were
busy, but she would send the first one that was available.
Bart waited a minute and called the
police again, "I called you a minute ago because there were people in my
barn. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I've just shot
all the SOB's!" Then he hung up.
Within five minutes, 3 police cars,
a Swat team, and 2 ambulances showed up at Bart's and caught the burglars
Accusingly, the officer in charge
said to Bart, "I thought you told the dispatcher you shot them."
Unconcerned, Bart replied, "I thought
she said there weren't any units available."
|As usual, Bart was running late.
He was speeding down a country road, and when he came to an intersection
with a STOP sign, he slowed down to check for traffic and then accelerated
through the intersection. Unfortunately, the time-saving technique
was witnessed by a deputy sheriff who pulled Bart over.
After checking Bart's license, registration,
and proof of insurance, the deputy said, "Sir, I'm going to issue you a
citation for failure to stop."
Exasperated, Bart snarled, "Look here,
Officer -- We're the only ones around for miles. I slowed down enough
to see no traffic was coming. You need to use some common sense."
Without a word, the officer whacked
Bart's head three times in quick succession with his night stick and then
said, "Sir, let me test your common sense -- Should I slow down or stop?"
|Todd hung up the phone and told his
friend, “He got me again. That was the feedyard -- The “Angus &
Black Baldy” steers I bought from Bart got there and they’re every color
in the spectrum and every breed known to mankind including a healthy dose
of what they’re guessing might be polled Longhorns. I’m gonna kill
Bart when I find him.”
His friend laughed and said, “You
know you won’t stay mad at ol’ Bart. Tell me this – If you only had
2 rounds in your gun and you went into a room and there was a rattlesnake,
Osama bin Laden, and Bart, what would you do?”
“That’s easy,” Todd said without hesitation,
“I’d shoot Bart twice.”
|Out of the blue, an old girlfriend
Bart hadn't seen for years called him.
After they had visited a while, she
said, "I'd love to see you, Bart. Do you ever get down this way anymore?"
"Well, darlin', you're in luck," Bart
purred, "I have to look at some cattle down that way next week. But
you have to realize I'm a little grayer than the last time you saw me and
I've put on about 15 pounds."
With a girlish laugh, she said, "That's
not so bad. I've gained a lot more than that."
Bart hung up the phone.
|Bart completed a 6 hour business
meeting at one of his branch offices, this one more commonly known as The
Last Chance Bar & Grill.
When he got in his car to start home,
he was astounded at what he found. He called the police department,
and with a tone of fury combined with indignation, he yelled, "My Lincoln
has been vandalized. They stole the dashboard, the steering wheel,
the brake pedal, even the accelerator !!!"
However, before a unit could be dispatched
to the crime scene, the phone rang a second time at the police department
and Bart was on the line.
"Never mind about that vandalism report,"
he said, "I got in the back seat by mistake."
|The farther south Bart drove, the
more worried he became. He sold 1,000 Mexican steers to a feedyard
and they insisted he had to be at the border when the cattle were crossed.
His concern was that with all of the recent border violence, combined with
his innate ability to be at the wrong spot at the right time for a disaster,
it was likely something really bad was going to happen to him.
By the time he reached the border
town, Bart was as nervous as a deer on a firing range. With his survival
instincts at a fever pitch, he astutely checked into a motel with an adjoining
restaurant that was farthermost from the border. And with a bunker
mentality that rivaled Hitler's, Bart vowed that after he had dinner, he
was going to seclude himself in his room for the night. While eating,
he struck up a conversation with a guy at the next table.
"You ever think about moving to a
safer place to live?" Bart asked.
The man replied, "A lot of what you
see on the news is exaggeration. It's just not that bad down here.
My wife and I live in a nice neighborhood, our kids go to excellent schools,
and we have good jobs."
Greatly relieved, Bart asked, "What
do you do here?"
The guy answered, "I'm the tail gunner

to save their marriage was to try counseling. When they arrived at the

90 miles an hour describing all of his transgressions and faults. After
15 minutes of listening, the counselor went over to her, picked her up
by her shoulders, kissed her passionately, and sat her back down.
She was speechless.

immediately... "I can have her here on Mondays and Thursdays."
|Bart was receiving
cattle, and the night before delivery, he drove to the small town and got
a motel room so he could be at the pens early the next morning. After dinner,
he found himself in the motel lounge where a man was shooting pool by himself.
Now, Bart had spent several decades honing his bar room pool-shooting skills
and not one to squander an opportunity, he slithered over and asked the
man if he would like some competition. The man agreed and they played two
games, each winning a game.
Bart said, "Looks
like we're about evenly matched. Would you like to make it interesting?
Say the best 2 out of 3 for $50.00."
The man agreed
and when Bart let him have the break, the man missed on his third shot.
As Bart deftly chalked his cue stick, he surveyed the table. He then
ran the table, broke on the second game, and ran the table again.
As Bart was
pocketing the $50, he asked, "What do you do around here?"
The man replied
he was the priest at the local Catholic church.
Even Bart was
flustered by the answer and he mumbled a half-hearted offer to return his
The priest said,
"No -- You won fair and square and I was foolish to bet with you. You keep
your winnings. But if you're not feeling good about yourself, you
could come to church on Sunday and make a donation. And, if you want

to his wife, "Darlin', if I die, I'm guessing you'll remarry and that's
OK. But promise me you'll sell all of my possessions first.
I can't stand the thought of some other jerk using my things."

|Bart had been
slipping in and out of a coma for several days. Things looked grim, but
his wife was by his bedside every single day. One day, as he slipped back
into consciousness, Bart motioned for her to come nearer. She pulled the
chair up to the bed and leaned closer to be able to hear him.
"You know" he
whispered, his eyes filling with tears, "You've been with me through all
the bad times. When I got fired, you stuck right beside me. Every time
I went broke, there you were. When we lost the house, you were there.
When I got shot, you stuck with me. And now with my health problems, you
are still by my side. And you know what?"
she asked gently, smiling to herself.
you're bad luck."
|Bart was going
to look at a big string of yearlings and was flying low down an unfenced
country road when he came onto a group of cattle crossing the road.
Despite his best efforts, he ran over a heifer calf. The damage to
his car was negligible but the calf was obviously dead.
The owner drove
up, looked the situation over, and said, "Mister, looks like you just bought
a heifer calf."
for the mishap and asked, "How much was she worth?"
she was worth about $300.00, but she was a really good heifer and I would
have kept her as a replacement heifer. Two years from now, she'd
be worth all of $1,200.00."
Bart was running
late and didn't want lose more time arguing, so he made out a check for
$1,200.00 and gave it to the rancher.
After Bart had
sped away, the rancher noticed the check was post dated for 2 years.
|On a hot summer
afternoon, Bart was putting out salt blocks on a place he had leased near
town. He pulled up to a pond and immediately noticed a nearby tree draped
with feminine clothing and four college-age girls taking a swim.

“I didn’t come down here to watch you ladies swim or make you get out of
the pond -- I just came by to feed my alligators.”

looking over his shoulder and appeared to be nervous, so he asked him if
anything was wrong.
"I'm a little
stressed," Bart admitted. "Actually, I'm scared out of my mind -- Some
ticked-off husband put a note in my pickup and said he would kill me if
I didn't stop messing around with his wife."
"So stop," the
"How can I ?"
Bart asked, totally frustrated. "The fool didn't sign his name !!!"
|The years had
passed by and it was time for the cattle buyer to send his son off to college.
He told the boy, "Son, you can take the old blue pickup. Its not
fancy, but its dependable. And take ol' Jake... That crazy dog will
keep you company. He's always in my way and follows me everywhere
I go, even when I go to town."
His son took

Bertha, who was the self-appointed monitor of the congregation's morals.
She was constantly sticking her nose into others people's business.
Most of the members did not approve of her activities, but feared her enough
to maintain their silence.
She made a mistake,
however, when she accused Slim of being an alcoholic after she saw his
pickup parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon. She
emphatically told Slim, in front of the entire congregation, that everyone
seeing it there would know exactly what he was doing.
Slim, a man

He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing. Later

bought a load of heifers and before he could get them sold, the market
went down, leaving him looking at a significant loss. He decided
to keep the heifers and breed them in hope he could recoup his loss by
selling them as bred heifers later on. He bought 2 bulls from a nearby
rancher and turned them out with the heifers.
In about a week,
the cattle buyer saw the rancher in town and said, "I want my money back
on those damned bulls you sold me. All they do is eat grass and won't
even look at the heifers."
replied, "I'll sure take them back, but before I do, let me send my vet
out to your place to take a look at those bulls."
A week later,
the rancher saw the cattle buyer and asked if the vet's visit did any good.
The cattle buyer
replied, "The vet did a Hell of job on those bulls. They bred all my heifers,
broke through the fence, and bred about half of my neighbor's cows before
we could get them out."
"Glad to hear
that" said the rancher. "What did the vet do to those bulls?"
"Just gave them
some pills," replied the cattle buyer.
"What kind of
pills?" asked the rancher.
said the cattle buyer... "But they sort of taste like peppermint."
A grade school
teacher was asking students what their fathers did for a living. "Tim,
you be first," she said. "What does your father do all day?"
Tim stood up
and proudly said, "He's a doctor."
How about you, Amy?"
Amy shyly stood
up, scuffed her feet and said, "My father is a mailman."
Amy," said the teacher. "What about your father, Jack?"
Jack stood up
and announced, "My daddy is a thief, a drug dealer, and a pimp."
was aghast and promptly changed the subject to geography. Later that day
she phoned Jack's house and asked his mother to come to school for a conference.
When she arrived, the teacher explained what her son had said and asked
if there might be some logical explanation.
said, "Jack's father is actually a cattle buyer... But how can I explain
a thing like that to a seven-year-old?"
Bart, a local
cattle buyer, stormed into the office at the County Road Department and
demanded to see the foreman.
"I live on County
Road 44," fumed Bart, "And I want you to move the "Deer Crossing" sign
that's on that sharp curve near Oak Creek."
asked, "Just why do you want the sign moved?"
I come home after dark, I nearly hit a deer on that curve because you can't
see them until it's almost too late," explained Bart.
"I guess I don't
understand," said the foreman, "How will moving the sign help?"
"Not too sharp,
are you?" snarled Bart... "If you move the damned sign to a straight part
of the road, I'll be able to see the deer in plenty of time."

visit a psychic on the midway.
In a dark and
hazy tent, peering into a crystal ball surrounded by candles, the mystic

easy way to say this, so I'll just be blunt. Prepare yourself to
be a widow. Your husband will die a violent and horrible death this year."
the cattle buyer’s wife thought about the years of misery and abuse she
had experienced in her marriage. She took a few deep breaths to compose
herself and then asked the psychic…
"Will I be acquitted?"

out before starting for home.
Just as he got

the lights were working.
“Are the tail

“How about the

“OK, here goes
the left turn signal. Is it working?” asked Sam.
“Yes… No… Yes… No…”
someone drive up and looked out to see Bart, a local cattle buyer, getting
out of his car. He came to the door and explained that her husband
asked him to look at the steers in the South Pasture. After he had
looked at the cattle, Bart stopped at the house and knocked on the door.
When Nancy came
to the door, Bart said, "Tell Tom I'll call him tonight about the steers.
By the way, Nancy... You just get prettier and prettier. In fact,
you look so good, I'll pay you $1,000 if you'll take off your blouse."
Bart was an
uncurable flirt who delighted in making women uncomfortable with his outrageous
advances and Nancy decided to call his bluff.
She said, "Bart,
the screen door's locked and it's going to stay that way. Slide the
money under the door."

slid them under the door.

took off her bra, picked up the money, and then closed the door.
at dinner, Tom asked Nancy, "Did Bart make it out here today?"
"He did. He was here mid-afternoon, looked at the steers, and said
he would call you tonight."
Then Tom asked,
"Did he leave $2,000? I loaned him some money last week and he told
me this morning he would go
by the Bank,
get the money, and leave it here this afternoon."
