A Missouri Sheriff stops at a ranch in rural MO and talks with an old farmer.He tells the farmer, ‘I need to inspect your ranch for illegal grown drugs.’
The old farmer says, ‘Okay, but don’t go in that field over there.’
The Sheriff verbally explodes saying, ‘Mister, I have the authority of the Sheriffs Department 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 farmer nods politely and goes about his chores.
Later, the old farmer hears loud screams and spies the Sheriff running for his life and close behind is the farmer’s bull. With every step the bull is gaining ground on the officer. The Sheriff 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!’
