Missouri Sheriff

The following joke tickled me:

A sheriff stops at a ranch in rural MO and says to the farmer, “I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown plants.”

“Okay,” the old farmer said, “but don’t go in that field over there.”

The sheriff begins to fume. “Mister, I have the authority of the Sheriff’s Department with me.” He pulls a badge from his pants pocket and proudly displays it. “See this badge? This gives me the power to go wherever I wish… on any land. No questions asked or answers given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?’

The farmer nods politely and goes about his chores. He later hears loud screams and spies the sheriff running for his life. Close behind him is the farmer’s bull. With each step, the bull is gaining ground and the officer is clearly terrified.

The old farmer immediately throws down his tools, runs to the fence, and yells at the top of his lungs, “Your badge! Show him your badge, smartass!”
