Show him your badge!
Recently I received this smile in an email from the USA:
officer stopped at a ranch in Texas ,
and talked with an old rancher. He told the rancher, "I
need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs."
rancher said, "Okay , but
don't go in that field over there......", as he
pointed out the location.
The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, " Mister,
I have the authority of the Federal Government with me !"
into his rear pants pocket, he removed his badge and proudly
displayed it to the rancher.
this badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I
wish..... On any land !!
questions asked or answers given!! Have I made myself
clear......do you understand ?!!
rancher nodded politely, apologized, and went about his work.
A short time later, the old rancher heard loud screams, looked up,
and saw the DEA officer running for his life,
being chased by the rancher's big Santa Gertrudis bull.
The terrified officer was calling
out "Help! Help me! Help!"
rancher ran to the fence and yelled at the top of his lungs:
badge, show him your bloody BADGE........ ! !"
