An Alabama farmer was driving his pick-up truck across a bridge when he noticed a man standing on the rail of the bridge ready to jump to his death in the river below.
The man stopped his truck ran up the man and said, "Hey fellow, 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."
The farmer then said, "Well, then think of your mother and father!"
The man replied, "Mom and Dad passed away many years back."
The Alabama farmer then said, "Well, think of General Robert E. Lee!"
The would-be jumper replied, "Who?"
With that the Alabama farmer said, "Jump you stupid Yankee, jump!!!"
