A man was driving home late one afternoon
above the speed limit. He noticed a police car
with its red lights in his rearview mirror. He
thought, "I can outrun this guy," so he floored
it and the race was on. The cars were racing
down the highway at 90 miles an hour. Finally,
as his speedometer passed 100, the guy figured,
"What the heck," and gave up. He pulled over
to the curb. The police officer got out of his
cruiser and approached the car.
He leaned down and said, "Listen mister, I've
had a really lousy day, and I just want to go
home. Give me a good excuse and I'll let you
go." The man thought for a moment and said, "Three
weeks ago, my wife ran off with a police officer.
When I saw your cruiser in my rearview mirror,
I thought you were that officer and you were
trying to give her back to me!"
The officer let him go.
