Only In Texas…

“A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.”   Henry Ward Beecher  1813-1887

There is some really funny stuff out there on the web.  With all the serious issues going on, I just have to interject some humor.  So, from Texas we have this one…

Only in Texas my friends…Only in Texas …

A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a sheriff’s deputy. He thinks that he is smarter than the deputy because he is a lawyer from New York and is certain that he has a better education then any cop from Podunk, TX . He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Texas deputy’s expense.

The deputy says, ‘License and insurance, please.’

‘What for?’ says the lawyer.

The deputy says, ‘You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign.’

Then the lawyer says, ‘I slowed down, and no one was coming.’

‘You still didn’t come to a complete stop,’ says the deputy. ‘License and insurance, please.’

The lawyer says, ‘What’s the difference?’

‘The difference is you have to come to complete stop, that’s the law. License and insurance, please!’ the Deputy repeats.

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

‘That sounds fair. Please exit your vehicle, sir,’ the deputy says.

After the lawyer does so, the deputy takes out his nightstick and starts beating the snot out of the lawyer and then says, ‘Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?’
