When you take the text out of it's context, you are left with a con:

A man was walking down the road with his donkey and dog when a car drove up behind him and knocked all three into a ditch. Three weeks later, the injured man was in court suing the driver. The driver's lawyer was questioning the injured man: "Isn't it true that after the accident you told my client, the defendant, that you never felt better in your life?"

The injured man replied: "Well, you see, I was walking along the road with my dog and donkey when..."

"JUST answer the question." interrupted the lawyer.

"Well, I was walking with my dog and donkey when..." the injured man attempted to continue his story.

"YOUR HONOR, please instruct the witness to answer the question, 'yes or no'."

The judge was curious about what the man had to say and instructed the lawyer to let him speak.

"Thank you your honor," replied the man, and he continued his story:

"I was walking along the road with my dog and donkey when this man drove up behind us and knocked us all in a ditch. We three lay there injured and suffering when the man pulled over, opened his trunk and pulled out a shotgun. He went to my dog and saw that he was bleeding to death so he shot him. He went to my donkey and saw that it had a broken leg, so he shot it. Then he stood over me with his gun and asked how I was feeling. I said that I never felt better in my life."
