Fast Thinking
A fellow bought a new Mercedes and was out on the interstate for a nice
evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was
left of his hair and he decided to open her up. As the needle jumped up to
80 mph he suddenly saw a flashing red and blue light behind him.
"There's no way they can catch a Mercedes," he thought to himself and opened
her up further. His needle hit 90, 100, 110. Then the reality of the
situation hit him. "What in hell am I doing?" he thought and pulled over.
The cop came up to him, took his license without a word, and examined it and
the car. Finally he came to the window looking steadily at the driver and
said, "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 driving that I
haven't heard before, you can go!"
The driver blinked only once while his brain scrambled for a reply. "Last
week my wife ran off with a cop," he said, "and I was afraid you were trying
to give her back!"
"Off you go," said the officer.
