This One Cracked Me Up!

laughter.jpgThis one (from Rod) cracked me up . . .

A man was being tailgated by a stressed out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk -- even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection. The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.

As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

He said, "I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do?' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'Follow Me to Sunday-School' bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk. Naturally...I assumed you had stolen the car."

That reminds me of the Seinfeld when Putty went all CCM on Elaine's car, fish and THAT was funny.

Unfortunately, this very scenario occurs around this densely populated metropolitan area in which I live almost daily. I, too, see fish symbols and bumper stickers and have to shake my head in confusion. 'Course, most of the citizenry in this area consists of people who belong to the Roman Catholic church so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised - do your good work by going to confession and attending mass and then feel free to live however you'd like for the rest of the week....

This is a classic story that has been re-told quite a lot.

It seems that Rod is a devoted reader of Our Daily Bread, because this story appeared in a recent entry.

Hilarious, but sadly true (on many levels). Personally, that is, amongst other reasons, why I don't have those types of bumper stickers on my car.

Years ago, I once heard this pastor say, that if you put his church's bumper sticker on your car, please put it on the side window. He told his people, that if you are speeding, roll your window down. If you are driving the speed limit, you can roll your window up!
