Lost in translation
Two Yankee boys were driving through the South and were stopped by a state trooper.
The trooper walked up to the open driver’s window, reached in and slapped the driver on the side of his head.
“What did you do that for?” the driver asked.
“I don’t know how y’all do it up north, but here in Alabama you have your driver’s license ready when I walk up to the car.”
The trooper took the license when it was offered, walked back to his unit and then returned the license to the driver.
He then walked around to the passenger side of the car and tapped on the window.
When the passenger rolled the window down, the trooper reached in and slapped the passenger on the side of the head.
“What did you do that for?” asked the startled passenger.
“Well,” responded the trooper, “I didn’t want you to be disappointed. You’ll get about two miles down the road and then say, ‘I wish that redneck woulda tried that with me!’”
