One day Al was driving to the lake for a swim when he noticed a man on the side of the highway dressed all in red.
“Who are you?” asked Al as he pulled up to the stranger.
“I’m the Man in Red and I’m very hungry,” said the man.
Reaching into his lunch sack, Al pulled out a sandwich, handed it to the man, then sped off down the road.
A few miles later, Al spotted another man, this time dressed all in yellow.
“What can I do for you?” asked Al.
“I’m the Man in Yellow and I’m very thirsty.”
Pulling out a can of soda, Al handed the Coke to the man , then resumed his journey.
Anxious to get to the lake before sunset, Al put his foot to the pedal and roamed off down the road, only to spot yet another man, dressed all in blue, signaling for Al to stop.
“Don’t tell me!” said Al impatiently. “You’re the Man in Blue, right?”
”That's right!” replied the man.
”Well, what do you want?”
”Driver’s license and registration, please.”
My new neighbor, Hans, just moved to the states from Norway and was arrested for speeding... driving 66 miles an hour in a 50 mph zone. However, he explained to the officer, "I saw a big sign with 66 on it."
"That's highway 66," the officer said disgustedly.
Hans replied, "You should have seen me yesterday on Highway 110!"
"Did you give the prisoner the third degree?" the police captain asked the detective.
"Yeah, we browbeat him pretty good," nodded the other. "Asked him every question and made every threat we could think of."
"And did you get a confession?" asked the sergeant.
"Not exactly," explained the officer. "All he'd say was, 'Yes dear' and he'd doze off."
