Is this an example of life-imitating-art ? Or life-imitating-punchline ?
A great story (supposedly true) about a guy who was pulled for speeding :
The officer pulls me over, checks my creds (license, insurance), etc and comes back to the car window. This takes about 4 minutes. Technology is great.
Officer: “It’s 9:40, and I get off work at ten. I would rather get home on time. Give me ONE GOOD REASON not to give you a ticket and I’ll let you go”.
I remembered a joke I read on the Internet over a year ago:
“Well, officer, to tell you the truth – my wife ran off with a cop over a year ago. I was afraid you were trying to bring her back”.
The cop immediately burst into a snorting laughter and patted me on the shoulder telling me, “You can go – keep it slow”.
And that’s how the Internet saved me over a hundred dollars tonight.
