Back when I was growing up, we had a traffic cop called “Stickler Steve”. He was one of those people who would never drink on the 4th of July, and was always early for work even when he had the day off, just to be able to go out and hunt for traffic violations. In the end he may have made the roads in my county a bit safer, but you’d be hard pressed to appreciate that when he was pulling you over for going 3 mph above the speed limit. I would have loved to talk back to him like the girl in this story did!
5 year old Emma had wanted a bicycle for months, and she was overjoyed when she got a brand new blue one for Christmas.
Emma was a quick learner, and soon she was biking along without having to use training wheels. She spent much of her time racing up and down her street, but she soon got bored of biking in the same place over and over, so she decided to out and explore the neighborhood.
After a few minutes of cycling, she was surprised to see a cop riding on a horse. She loved horses, so she biked up to the police officer and said hi.
The cop on the horse raised his eyebrows, leaned down and asked Emma, “That’s a nice bike you’ve got there. Did Santa get you that?”
“Yes,” Emma replied proudly.
The cop frowned and said, “Well, tell him to put a reflector light on it next year!”
He took out his notebook and handed her a traffic ticket for $5.
Emma examined the ticket for a few seconds, and then looked up at the cop and said, “That’s a nice horse you’ve got there, did Santa get you that?”
The cop chuckled and replied, “He sure did!”
“Well,” she said, “next year tell Santa that the d*ck goes under the horse, not on top of it!”
Talk about a kid with gumption! SHARE if you laughed!
