The Cherry Tree

A Hopi father lined up all of his little sons and stood in front of them.
He then asked, "Who pushed the outhouse over the cliff?"

Nobody answered him.

He then asked again, "Who pushed the outhouse over the cliff?" ...again nobody answered.

The Hopi father said, "I'll tell you a story of George and George's father. George chopped down the cherry tree. George told the truth, Big George didn’t punish George.”

So the father asked again, "Who pushed the outhouse over the cliff?"

The littlest son replied, "I pushed the outhouse over the cliff."

The Hopi father then punishes his son. When he is done, the little kid asks, "George told the truth and didn’t get punished. I tell the truth, I get punished. Why, father?"

The Hopi father replied, "Big George was not in the cherry tree when it got chopped down!!!"

The Power of A Badge

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 do not 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. 

A short time later, the old rancher hears loud screams and sees the DEA officer running for his life chased by the rancher's big Santa Gertrudis 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 ! "

Don't Mess With Old Floks


George Phillips of Meridian , Mississippi was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?" He said "No." Then they said

"All patrols were busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available." George said, "Okay" He hung up the phone and counted to 30.

Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot them." and hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!" (True Story)
