A fellow bought a new convertible Mercedes and was out on an open road for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through his hair and he decided to open her up. As the needle jumped up to 80mph he suddenly saw a flashing blue light behind him.
“They’ll never catch me, ” he thought to himself and opened her up further. The needle hit 90, 100 110 and finally 120 with the lights still behind him. “What am I doing?” he thought and pulled over.
The nice officer came up to him, took his license without a word and examined it and the car. “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 terrible driving and one that I haven’t heard before you can go!” he said.
“Last week my wife ran off with a really really good looking cop, ” the man said, “and I was afraid, looking in my rear view mirror, that you were trying to bring her back!”
“Have a nice night, ” said the officer.
