Hits his stride.
Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
A DEA agent stops at a ranch in Texas and talks with an old rancher.
He tells the rancher, “I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs.” The rancher points and says, “Okay, but do not go in that field over there.”
The DEA agent verbally explodes: “Mister, I have the authority of the federal government behind me.” Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removes his badge and proudly displays it to the rancher. “See this badge? This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish … on any land. No questions asked or answers given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?”
The rancher nods politely, apologizes and goes about his chores.
A short time later, the old rancher hears loud screams and sees the DEA agent running for his life while being chased by the rancher’s prize bull.
With every step the bull is gaining ground on the officer, and it seems likely that he’ll get “horned” before he reaches safety. The officer is clearly terrified. The rancher throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs:
“Your badge! Show him your BADGE!”
