An officer pulls over an elderly gentleman who’s driving three ladies down the highway.
“Do you know why I pulled you over, sir?” asks the officer.
“No sir, I haven’t the faintest idea!” replies the old gent.
“Well, you were going 75 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone,” states the officer.
“But dad gum, the sign done said it was 75!” says the old gent, cocking an eyebrow.
The officer looks around and sure enough, there’s a sign for
Chuckling at the old man’s mistake, he turns back and says
“You see, sir, that’s the highway number. Not the speed limit.”
“Ohhhhhhhh!!!!!” says the old man wonderingly. “Well, dad gum!”
All this time, the ladies have been extremely quiet and still in the back seat. The officer peers in and sees them sitting stiffly and upright, looks of fear plastered on their faces.
“Do you have any idea why your passengers look so scared?” the officer asks the gent.
“Well…” says the gentleman,
“see, before you pulled me over, we had just got off Highway 135…..”
