Once, Twice Thrice

An old man and his new wife, after their wedding ceremony headed home in a single mule cart. After a few miles the mule sat down in the middle of the dirt road. The old man simply said, “That’s ONCE.” A few minutes later the mule rose and started down the road once again. But in a few more mile the mule sat down again. The old man not moving again said, “That’s TWICE.” The new bride was a bit perplexed but remained silent. Soon the mule rose again and started down the road. But in less than a mile the mule sat down AGAIN. The old man exclaimed, “That’s THRICE.” He then reached under the seat of the cart and drew out his shotgun and shot the mule dead.

The new wife was so upset that he shot the mule shouted, “You have killed the only mule we had. It is still many miles to the house. How are we to get home NOW.”

The old man turned to his wife and said, That’s ONCE.”
