A fellow bought a new Mercedes and was out on the interstate for
a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through
what was left of his hair and he decided to open her up. As the
needle jumped up to 80 mph he suddenly saw a flashing red and blue light
"There's no way they can catch a Mercedes," he thought to himself
and opened her up further. His needle hit 90, 100, 110. Then the
reality of the situation hit him. "What in hell am I doing?" he thought
and pulled over.
The cop came up to him, took his license without a word, and
examined it and the car. Finally he came to the window looking steadily
at the driver and said, "I've had a tough shift and this is my last
pull over. I don't feel like more paperwork so if you can give me an
excuse for your driving that I haven't heard before, you can go!"
The driver blinked only once while his brain scrambled for a
reply. "Last week my wife ran off with a cop," he said, "and I was
afraid you were trying to give her back!"
"Off you go," said the officer.
