Texas Humor - A Man With Authority
It's a stormy day here on the Gulf Coast... A friend of mine in Ohio sent me this little ditty......
A Man With Authority:
A Texas Sheriff stops at a ranch in rural TX and
talks with an old farmer. He tells the farmer,
'I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown
drugs.' The old farmer says, 'Okay, but don't go
in that field over there.' The Sheriff verbally
explodes saying, 'Mister, I have the authority of
the Sheriff's Department with me.' Reaching into
his rear pants pocket and removing his badge. The
officer proudly displays it to the farmer. 'See
this badge? This badge means I am allowed to go
wherever I wish on any land. No questions asked or
Have I made myself clear?
Do you understand?'
The old farmer nods politely and goes about his
chores. Later, the old farmer hears loud scream
and spies the Sheriff running for his life and
close behind is the farmer's bull. With every step
the bull is gaining ground on the officer. The
Sheriff is clearly terrified.
The old farmer immediately sets down his tools,
walks to the fence and yells at the top of his
'Your badge! Show him your badge Smart ass!
