JOE, COOTER, & GUBER
Joe died in a fire and his body was burned pretty badly. The morgue needed
someone to identify the body, so they sent for his two best deer hunting
friends, Cooter and Guber. The three men had always hunted and fished
together and were long time members of a hunt camp.
Cooter arrived first, and when the mortician pulled back the sheet, Cooter
said, 'Yup, his face is burned up pretty bad. You better roll him over.' The
mortician rolled him over and Cooter said, 'Nope, ain't Joe’.
The mortician thought this was rather strange, so he brought Guber in to confirm the identity of the body. Guber looked at the body and said, 'Yup, he's pretty well burnt up, Roll him over.' The mortician rolled him over and Guber said, ‘No, it ain't Joe’ .
The mortician asked, 'How can you tell?' Guber said, 'Well, Joe had two ass-holes’. 'What! He had two ass-holes?' asked the mortician.
'Yup, we never seen 'em, but everybody used to say:
'There's Joe with them two ass-holes’
