A lady is trotting down the road in her horse and buggy when she is pulled over by the sheriff.
“Ma’am, I have to warn you, you have a broken stake on your wheel,” says the sheriff.
“Oh dear. I’ll let my husband, Jacob know as soon as I get home,” she replies.
“That’s fine,” he continues. “Another thing, ma’am. I don’t like the way that one rein loops across the horse’s back and around one of his testicles. I consider that terrible cruelty to the animal. Have your husband take care of that right away!”
Later that day, the lady is home telling her husband about her encounter with the sheriff. “Well, dear, what exactly did he say?” asked the husband. “He said a stake is broken,” replied the lady. “I can fix that in a heartbeat. What else?” asked the husband.
The wife replied: “I’m not sure, Jacob – something to do with the emergency brake.”
