Take my wife, please....
A certain gentleman was pulled in the late afternoon by a veteran state highway patrol man and was asked for his identification. When questioned by the trooper as to why he was driving so fast the officer further stated, "It is near my shift change and I have had a long day, if you can give me a valid reason as to why you were trying to speed away from me and the explanation makes me laugh, I'll let you go with a warning".
The gentleman thought for a minute and said, "Two years ago, my wife ran away with a State Trooper and I thought you were trying to return her back to me!"
The man got his warning and the trooper could not stop smiling.
