A man and his wife, moved back home to Missouri , from Texas . The husband had a wooden leg, and to insure it back in Texas , it cost them $2000. Per year!
When they arrived in Missouri , they went to an insurance agency to see how much it would cost to insure his wooden leg.
The agent looked it up on the computer and said: ’$39.’
The husband was shocked and asked why it was so cheap here in Missouri to insure it because it cost him $2000 in Texas !
The insurance agent turned his computer screen to the couple and said, ‘Well, here it is on the screen, it says: Any wooden structure, with a sprinkler system above it, is $39… You just have to know how to describe it!’
(Those “Show Me Missourians know how “to git ‘ER done”; don’t they?)
