On Purpose

When a cowboy applied for an insurance policy, the agent asked: “Have you ever had any accidents?”

“Nope,” replied the cowboy. “But a bronc did kick in two of my ribs last summer, and a few years ago a snake bit me on the ankle.”

“Wouldn’t you call those accidents?” asked the puzzled agent.

“Naw,” the cowboy said. “They did it on purpose!”
