A police officer in a small town stopped a motorist who was speeding down the street. “Officer,” the man began, “I can explain.”
“No explanation needed!” snapped the police officer. “I’m going to let you cool your heels in jail until the chief is back.”
The man tried again. “But officer, I have to tell you something.”
“Just keep quiet! You’re going to jail and I’m not interested in what you have to say!” the officer barked.
A few hours later, the police officer looked in on his prisoner and said, “Lucky for you the chief is at his daughter’s wedding. He’ll be in a good mood when he gets back.”
“Don’t count on it,” answered the fellow in the cell. “I’m the groom.”
