Thursday Thirteen


NEVER SAY TO A COP....

1. I can't reach my license unless you hold my beer. (OK in Texas)
2. Sorry, Officer, I didn't realize my radar detector wasn't plugged in.
3.Aren't you the guy from the Village People?
4. Hey, you must've been doin' about 125 mph to keep up with me. Good job!
5. Are You Andy or Barney?
6. I thought you had to be in relatively good physical condition to be a police officer.
7. You're not gonna check the trunk, are you?
8. I pay your salary!
9. Gee, Officer! That's terrific. The last officer only gave me a warning, too!
10. Do you know why you pulled me over? Okay, just so one of us does.
11. I was trying to keep up with traffic. Yes, I know there are no other
cars around.. That's how far ahead of me they are.
12. When the Officer says "Gee .Your eyes look red, have you been drinking?" You probably shouldn't respond with,"Gee Officer your eyes look glazed, have you been eating doughnuts?"
13. My own personal experience: Don't blow through a stop sign with an officer sitting at the corner.....I saw him and pulled over on my own. He pulled up alongside me and asked me if I
knew how much the fine was - he told me, then drove off but I didn't get a ticket!!!

Other than #13, I cannot claim these as my own...

Wanna play, too? Check out Thursday Thirteen Here:

Number 9 cracked me up this morning! That's the best one...I laughed....literally...out loud.

#7 reminded me of the movie 9 to 5. I was pulled over about this time of the year many years ago and the officer asked to see my drivers license. I started laughing and said, "It's in the trunk" and then told him that reminded me of the 9 to 5 movie. I had been attending Regatta and left my purse in the trunk. The officer also laughed and let me go.

Funny! I'm glad you didn't get a ticket...

What a funny list! I laughed out loud reading these!

Happy TT!

Andy and Barney and the Village People - hehehehe!

I used to claim I'd lost my contact lens in my eye socket if I got pulled over - never worked if I got pulled over for speeding, lol.

Thanks for the laughs! My TT has some too: 13 Clean Comedians from my Youth

#13 sounds like the smartest thing you could have done under the circumstances! I've never blown through a stop sign but that's probably because I spent so many years dispatching cops and hopefully knowing better! That and I've always been a stickler for traffic laws except for that one about not speeding ... that one I have trouble with!!!

I don't know why, but your posts haven't been showing up in my reader. That makes me sad...I thought you were still on hiatus all this time.

Hey it was great to hear from you the other day, and this list is a riot too!

Great list. I didn't play this week, but I really like this one.
Have a great holiday week-end.

I have now successfully gone 3 years without getting pulled over, so I beleive my curse has been lifted!

Those are great Gracie!! I'll have to pass them on to Jay and see how many he's heard! :-)
