I'm not as think as you drunk I am, ociffer.


It's late at night, on a rather empty highway, and a police officer driving along notices a car up ahead. The driver is following every rule in the book -- he's not speeding, he's using his turn signal to change lanes (even with an empty highway!)... the police officer decides to show his appreciation. He turns on his lights, and the car ahead puts on its right turn signal, slows down, stops on the shoulder, and puts the hazard lights on.

The cop walks up to the car, and the window is rolled down already. "I'd just like to thank you, sir, for driving so cautiously. You're a model driver, and I wish other people were as courteous as you are on the road." says the cop to the driver.

The driver responds "Why thank you, officer. You have to be this careful when you're as drunk as I am."

    My friend worked for the university police force. He pulled over an obviously drunk driver and asked the usual "How much have you had to drink?" and prepared to hear the traditional "Two beers." Instead he got "Um, I think about 8 beers, a couple of shots of tequila, some ..."

    He was so impressed with the honesty that he gave the guy a ride home and didn't cite him.
