Nothing to Live For

A farmer in Alabama was driving across a bridge in his pickup truck when he noticed a man standing on the rail of the bridge ready to jump to his death in the river below.

The farmer stopped his truck, ran up to the man and said, “Hey, why are you doing this?”

The man replied, “Well, I have nothing to live for.”

The farmer replied, “Well, think of your wife and children!”

The jumper replied, “I have no wife or children.”

“Well, then think of your mother and father!”

The man replied, “Mom and Dad passed on many years back.”

The Alabama man then said, “Well, think of General Robert E. Lee!”

The would-be jumper replied, “Who?”

With that the farmer said, “Jump you damn Yankee, jump!”
