What to tell an officer who pulls you over for speeding

A Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left. “Amazing!” he thought as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal to the metal even more.

Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw the highway patrol behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. “I can get away fro him – no problem!” thought the elderly gentleman as he floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120 mph.

Suddenly, he thought, “What on earth am I doing? I’m too old for this nonsense!”, pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the Trooper to catch up with him

Pulling in behind him, the Trooper walked up to the driver’s side of the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, “Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason why you were driving 120 miles per hour that I’ve never heard before, I’ll let you go.”

The man, looking very seriously at the Trooper, said, “Years ago, my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.”

“Have a good day Sir”, said the Trooper.

Farmers’ wages

A man owned a small farm in South Georgia. The Wage and Hour Department claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent to interview him.

“You just give me a list of your employees and tell me how much you pay them.”

“All right,” said the farmer. “I have a hired man. Been with me for three years. I pay him $600 a week, plus room and board. I have a cook. She’s been here six months. She gets $500 a week plus room and board.”

“Anybody else?” asked the agent as he scribbled on a note pad.

“Yeah,” the farmer said. “This guy is none too bright. Works about eighteen hours a day. I pay him ten dollars a week and give him chewing tobacco.”

“Aha!” the agent roared. “I want to talk to that man!”

How to get kids to come back for holidays…

An elderly man in Phoenix calls his son in New York and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.

“Pop, what are you talking about?” the son screams.

“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the old man says. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her,” and he hangs up.

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “They’re not getting divorced if I have anything to do about it,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this.”

She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at the old man, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife.

“Okay,” he says, “They’re coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own fares…Now what do we tell them for Christmas?”

How to get quick police response

A man was going up to bed when his wife told him that he’d left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window.  He opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked, “Is an intruder in your house?” and he said no. Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available. The man said, “Okay,” hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again.

“Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people in my shed. Well, you don’t have to worry about them now ’cause I’ve just shot them all.” Then he hung up.

Within five minutes, three police cars, an Armed Response unit, and an ambulance showed up at the man’s residence. Of course, the police caught the burglars red handed.

One of the policemen said to the man, “I thought you said that you’d shot them!”, to which he replied, “I thought you said there was nobody available!”

Equally dishonest lawyers

Taking his seat in his chambers, the judge faced the opposing lawyers.

“So,” he said, “I have been presented, by both of you, with a bribe.”

Both lawyers squirmed uncomfortably. “You, attorney Paulson, gave me $15,000. And you, attorney Hendren, gave me $10,000.”

The judge reached into his pocket and pulled out a check. He handed it to Paulson. “Now then, I’m returning $5,000, and we’re going to decide this case solely on its merits!”
