A police officer pulls a driver over for speeding :
Officer: May I see your driver’s licence?
Driver: I don’t have one.
Officer: May I see the registration document for this vehicle?
Driver: It’s not my car, I stole it.
Officer: The car is stolen?
Driver: That’s right. But come to think of it, I saw the owner’s registration document in the glove box when I was putting my gun in there.
Officer: There’s a gun in the glove box?
Driver: Yes sir, that’s where I put it after I shot the woman who owns this car and put her in the boot.
Officer: There’s a body in the boot?
Driver: Yes, sir.
Hearing this, the officer immediately called for back-up. The car is quickly surrounded by police and an inspector approaches the driver to handle the tense situation:
Inspector: Sir, can I see your driving licence?
Driver: Sure, here it is.
It was valid.
Inspector: Who’s car is this?
Driver: It’s mine, officer. Here’s the registration document.
It too was valid.
Inspector: Would you slowly open your glove box, so that I can see if there’s a gun in it?
There was no gun in the glove box.
Inspector: Would you mind opening your boot? I was told you said there’s a body in it.
Driver: No problem.
The boot is opened and there’s no body.
Inspector: I don’t understand it. The officer who stopped you said you told him you didn’t have a driving licence, stole the car and had a gun in the glove box and that there was a body in the boot!
Driver: Yes and I bet the liar told you I was speeding as well!
