Old mountaineer

The scene was a tiny mountain village in a remote section of West Virginia.

An old mountaineer and his young wife were getting a divorce in
the local court, and custody of the children was a problem.

The mother jumped to her feet and protested to the judge that
since she had brought the children into this world, she should
retain custody of them.

The old mountaineer also wanted custody of the children.

The judge asked for his side of the story and, after a long
moment of silence, the mountaineer slowly rose from his chair and
said, "Judge, when I put a quarter in a candy machine and a candy
bar comes out, does it belong to me or the machine?"
