A state trooper pulled a car over for speeding. When the officer asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver said he was a juggler on his way to do a show and didn’t want to be late.
The trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling and said if the driver would do a little juggling for him, then he wouldn’t give him a ticket.
The juggler told the trooper he had sent his equipment ahead and didn’t have anything to juggle, so the trooper grabbed some flares from his trunk and asked if he could juggle them.
The juggler said he could, so the trooper lit five flares and handed them to the juggler.
While the man was juggling, another car pulled in behind the patrol car. The other car’s driver got out and watched the performance briefly, then went over to the patrol car, opened the rear door and got in.
Observing this, the trooper went over to the patrol car, opened the door, and asked what he thought he was doing.
The man replied, “You might as well take my ass to jail, because there ain’t no way I’m gonna pass that sobriety test.”
