A farmer and his brand new bride were riding home from the chapel in a wagon pulled by a team of horses, when the older horse stumbled. The farmer said *That's once* A little further along the poor horse stumbled again. *That's twice* the farmer said. A little further down the road and the horse stumbled again. the farmer pulled out his shotgun and shot the horse. His brand new bride yelled *That's an awful thing to do.*
The farmer said *That's once.*
