The difference between “Stop” & “Slow Down” August 29, 2007Posted by Rambling Man in Poetry & Humor.
I keep getting these jokes making fun of the English and feel compelled to post them – they’re a humoursome lot and will, I’m sure, see the funnier side.
A London lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by an Irish Garda.
He thinks that he is smarter than the cop because he is a London lawyer, from London, and is certain that he has a better education than any paddy cop. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Garda’s expense!!
Garda says,” License and registration, please.”
Lawyer says, “What for?”
Garda replies, “You didn’t come to a complete stop at the Stop sign.”
Lawyer says, “I slowed down, and no one was coming.”
Garda says, “You still didn’t come to a complete stop. License And registration, please.”
Lawyer says, “What’s the difference?”
Garda says, “The difference is, you have to come to complete stop, that’s the law. License and registration, now please!”
Lawyer says, “If you can show me the legal difference between “slow down” and “stop”, I’ll give you my license and registration and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.”
Garda says, “Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir.”
The lawyer gets out.
All of a sudden, the Garda takes out his baton and starts beating the shite out of the lawyer with it and says, “Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?”
