Laughter: The Universal Language – #50

Something to try next time you’re caught speeding? 😀

A Mountie pulled a car over on the Trans-Canada about two miles west of Winnipeg.

When the Mountie asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver answered that he was a magician and a juggler and he was on his way to Brandon to do a show that night at the Shrine Circus, and didn’t want to be late.

The Mountie told the driver he was just fascinated by juggling, and said if the driver would do a little juggling for him then he wouldn’t give him a speeding ticket.

But the driver told the Mountie that he had sent all of his equipment on ahead and didn’t have anything to juggle. The Mountie told him that he had some flares in the trunk of his patrol car and asked if they would do.

The juggler said yes, that would work, so the Mountie got three flares, lit them and handed them to the juggler.

While the man was doing his juggling act, a car pulled in behind the patrol car.

A drunk ‘good old boy,’ driving through from Alberta, got out and watched the performance briefly.

He then went over to the patrol car,  pulled opened the rear door and got in.

The Mountie observed him doing this and went over to the patrol car, opened the door and asked the drunk what he thought he was doing.

The drunk then replied to the Mountie, “You might as well take me to jail… ’cause there’s no fuckin’ way I can pass that test!”
