Busload of politicians
A busload of politicians1 was driving down a country road when the bus suddenly ran off the road and crashed into an old farmer's field.
The old farmer heard the tragic crash so he rushed over to investigate2. He then began digging a large grave to bury3 the politicians.
A few hours later, the local4 sheriff was driving past the farmer's field and noticed the bus wreck5. He approached the old farmer and asked where all the politicians had gone. The old farmer explained that he'd gone ahead6 and buried all of them.
"Were they all dead?" asked the puzzled7 sheriff.
"Well, some of them said they weren't," said the old farmer, "but you know how the politicians lie."
