Driving to work, a gentleman had to swerve to avoid a box that fell out of a truck in front of him. Seconds later, a policeman pulled him over for reckless driving. Fortunately, another officer had seen the carton in the road. The policemen stopped traffic and recovered the box. It was found to contain large upholstery tacks.
"I'm sorry sir," the first trooper told the driver, "but I am still going to have to write you a ticket."
Amazed, the driver asked for what.
The trooper replied, "Tacks evasion."
The fist knocking on the door belonged to a cop. Bracing for the worst, the yard foreman opened the door.
"Is that yours?" asked the officer, pointing to a company van that was jutting out into the narrow street.
"Uhh, yes it is," said the foreman. "That is, it's our company's."
"Would you mind moving it?" asked the officer. "We've set up a speed trap, and the van's causing everyone to slow down."
A group of elementary school students were on a field trip to the local police station. Several of the children were fascinated by the wanted posters on the wall.
Little Johnny raised his hand and asked the police officer giving them the tour who the people on the wall were.
"Those are pictures of criminals we are looking for," answered the policeman. "We call those wanted posters."
Little Johnny looked puzzled. He raised his hand back up into the air. "Well," he wondered, "why didn't you just keep them when you took their pictures?"
