Sunday Funnies!

I'M FROM THE GOVERNMENT!!!

A DEA officer stops at a ranch in Texas, and talks with an old rancher. He tells the rancher, 'I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs. The old rancher says, 'Okay, but don't go in that field over there.'

The DEA officer verbally explodes saying, 'Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me.' Reaching into his rear pant pocket and removing his badge. The officer proudly displays it to the farmer. 'See this badge? This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish on any land. No questions asked or answers given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?' The old rancher nods politely and goes about his chores.

Later, the old rancher hears loud screams and spies the DEA officer running for his life and close behind is the rancher's bull.. With every step the bull is gaining ground on the officer. The officer is clearly terrified. The old rancher immediately throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs...... 'Your badge! Show him your badge!

Huh. Plucky old rancher. Just goes to show "you reap what you sow."

Yeah. I adore this one. Its a great commentary on pride, arrogance, and not taking advice from others even when they know way more than you. Love it!
