An out-of-towner drove his car into a ditch in a desolated area. Luckily, a local farmer saw him stuck and came to help with his big strong horse named Buddy.
He hitched Buddy up to the car and yelled, “Pull Nellie, pull!” Buddy didn’t move.
Then the farmer hollered, “Pull Buster, pull!” Buddy didn’t respond.
Once more the farmer commanded, “Pull Coco, pull!” Nothing.
Then the farmer nonchalantly said, “Pull Buddy, pull!” And the horse easily dragged the car out of the ditch.
The motorist was most appreciative and very curious. He asked the farmer why he called his horse by the wrong name three times.
The farmer said, “Oh, Buddy is blind and if he thought he was the only one pulling, he would never even try!”
