A man and his wife moved back home to Louisiana from Arizona . The wife had a wooden leg and to insure it in Arizona was $2,000.00 a year!!!

When they arrived in Louisiana , they went to an Insurance agency to see how much it would cost to insure the wooden leg. The agent looked it up on the computer and said to the couple, "$39.00."

The husband was shocked and asked why it was so cheap here in Louisiana to insure, because it cost him $2,000.00 in Arizona !!!

The agent turned his computer screen toward the couple and said, "Well, here it is on the screen. It says: “Any wooden structure, with a sprinkler system over it, is $39.00."

I always have found the Louisiana logic far superior to that of most other states.
