Laughter: The Universal Language – #56

Now I just think this is funny! Yes, yes, serious undertones, but for once I’m not thinking about those!

One night, a police officer was staking out a particularly rowdy bar for possible violations of the “driving under the influence” laws. At closing time, he saw a fellow stumble out of the bar, trip on the curb, and try his keys on no less than five different cars before he found his own.

The police officer kept watching in amazement as the man finally entered his car and sat in the front seat, fumbling around with his keys for several minutes. By now, everyone had left the bar and driven away.

At last, the man got his engine started and slowly began to drive off.

The police officer was ready for him. He switched on his “Whoop! Whoop!” siren, pulled up behind the driver and got out. He walked over to the him, read him his rights and administered the Breathalyzer test.

Shockingly, the results showed a reading of 0.0! The officer looked at the reading in disbelief. He demanded to know how that could be and asked the driver for an explanation, in light of the erratic behaviour he’d witnessed.

The man replied, “Well y’see Officer, tonight, I’m the Designated Decoy.”
