    Carolina Freightways needed a driver desperately for a new route they had just opened in east Georgia and north Florida. John Henry the truck driver came in to apply for the job. They wanted John Henry cause he was known to be an excellent driver and dedicated employee. They also knew he had a side kick named Gomer that were as useless as mammaries on a bore hog. To try to protect themselves from this useless person they gave John Henry a test, hoping he would fail.

    The last question on the test was, "John Henry, you just drove out onto a bridge, a mile long, and over a deep canyon. Right in the middle of that bridge is a bad wreck, blocking all the lanes. What would you do?" John Henry said he would apply the brakes, and bring the truck to a safe stop.

    "Won't work, your brakes are out."

    John Henry said he would wait for the emergency spring brakes to apply, thereby bringing the truck to a stop.

    "The valve is stuck, and the E-brakes won't work."

    John Henry said he'd down shift to a slow speed, and............

    Nope, going too fast

    John Henry said he turn around and wake up Gomer.

    "Why, for God's sake?"

    "Well suh," said John Henry, "me and Gomer been runnin together nigh

    onto twenty years, and he aint never seen a truck wreck like we're

    about to have."
