February 27, 2008 · Print This Article

A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a sheriff’s deputy.

He thinks he is smarter than the deputy because he is a lawyer from New York and he is certain that he is better educated than any cop from Texas. He decides to prove this to himself and to have some fun at the Texas deputy’s expense!!

Deputy says: “License and Registration please.”

Lawyer says: “What for?”

Deputy says: “You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign.”

Lawyer says: “I slowed down, and no one was coming.”

Deputy says: “You still didn’t come to a complete stop. License and registration, please.”

Lawyer says: “What’s the difference?”

Deputy says: “The difference is, you have to come to a complete stop, that’s the law. License and registration please!”

Lawyer says: “If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my license and registration; and you can give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.”

Deputy says: “Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, please Sir.”

The deputy takes out his nightstick and starts beating the lawyer with it and then says, “Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?”


Got something to say?
