The Badge

badgeA policeman approached a farmer, saying that he needed to inspect his property for illegally grown drugs.  The farmer responded, pointing toward one corner, “That’s OK, but just don’t go into that field over there.”

The policeman sneered as he pulled out his badge. “Now listen here, this badge says that I have the authority to go wherever I want.  I’m in charge. I call the shots. You got that?”

“Fine with me,” replied the farmer, “You get to go wherever you like.”

Naturally, the policeman went straight to the field that the farmer had pointed out, while the farmer went back to work. A short time later, though, he heard loud screams and ran across to see what was happening. The policeman was running for his life, being chased by the farmer’s massive bull. As the bull gained ground, the policeman looked more and more terrified.

The farmer called out at the top of his lungs, “Your badge. Show him your badge!”
