Power of the Badge

A Good Laugh Today
Here’s cute story/joke that I think you will enjoy…

DEA 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 rancher says, "Okay , but don't go in that field over there," as he points out the location.

The DEA officer verbally explodes saying, " Mister,  I have the authority of the Federal Government with me."  Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removes his badge and proudly displays it to the rancher.  "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 rancher nods politely, apologizes, and goes about his chores.

bullA short time later, the old rancher hears loud screams and sees the DEA officer running for his life chased by the rancher's big bull...

With every step the bull is gaining ground on the officer, and it seems likely that he'll get gored  before he reaches safety.  The officer is clearly terrified.

The rancher throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs...

" Your badge. Show him your BADGE ! "

Joke of the Day

A woman was standing in front of the mirror. She frowns. She is not happy with what she is seeing. She tells her husband, “I look old, fat and ugly… and my hair is a total mess.” What I need is a compliment from you to make me feel better.

Her husband says, “Well honey, all I can say is that your eyesight is near perfect!”
