An American couple on vacation with some friends in Mexico were
shopping at the market to bring back a few souvenirs to their
family and friends. The time passed and the couple realize that
neither of them were wearing watches. They noticed this Mexican
man laying down taking a siesta next to this mule that had the
largest set of mule nuts they had ever seen.
Trying not to stare at the huge mule nuts they asked the Mexican
man, “Excuse us could you tell us what time it is?”
The Mexican man reaches his hand out under the enormous set of
nuts lifting them high and says, “It’s 3 o’clock.”
Amazed by this the American couple go off to find their friends
and tell them the amazing story. This Mexican man over there can
tell time by lifting his mules balls! Curious and amazed by this
the friends want to see first hand so they go back and ask him
what time it was.
Sure enough the Mexican man reaches out again cups his hands
under the mules nuts lifts them up as if to weigh them and says,
“It is 3:15.” Their friends check the time on their watches and
sure enough the little man was correct.
Blown away by this finally the American couple ask, “It is just
amazing how do you do that?”
“Do what?” the Mexican asks.
“Tell the time by lifting your mule’s balls!”
“Ah,” Says the Mexican, “I just need to lift his balls so I can
see that big clock across the street.”
