A Missouri Farmer Passed Away And Left 17 Mules To His Three

Topic: g-rated

A Missouri farmer passed away and left 17 mules to his three sons. The instructions left in the will said that the oldest boy was to get one-half, the second eldest one-third, and the youngest one- ninth. The three sons, recognizing the difficulty of diving 17 mules into these fractions, began to argue.

Their uncle heard about the argument, hitched up his mule, and drove out to settle the matter. He added his mule to the 17, making 18. The eldest son therefore got one-half or nine; the second got one-third or six; and the youngest got one-ninth or two. Adding up 9, 6, and 2 equals 17. The uncle, having settled the argument, hitched up his mule and drove home.
