12 Ṭeveth 5768: “Good excuse”


Today’s news and commentary:Today’s weird thing is something silly from Emily’s collection. Enjoy, share the weirdness, and Shabbath shalom.


Good excuse

A guy bought a new Mercedes and was out on an interstate road for a nice evening drive. As the needle jumped up to 80 MPH he suddenly saw a flashing red and blue light behind him. Confident he could outrun the police car, he began to drive faster. 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 cop 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 driving that I haven’t heard before you can go.”

“Last week my wife ran off with a cop,” the man said, “and I was afraid you were trying to give her back.”

“Have a nice night,” said the officer.
