The joke (and arrogance) of authority - DaveTavres.comA government agent stopped at a local ranch and talked to the old rancher working on his property. He told the rancher, “I need to inspect your ranch for illegal activity." The rancher said, "Okay, but don’t go into that field over there…" as he pointed out the location. The agent verbally exploded and said, "I have the authority of the federal government with me!” Reaching into his back pocket, the officer removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher. "See this badge?! This badge means I can go wherever I want… on any land! No questions asked, no answers given! Do you understand old man?!" The rancher kindly nodded, apologized, and went back to his chores.

Moments later the rancher heard loud screams. He looked up and saw the agent running for his life, being chased by the ranchers bull. With every step the bull was gaining ground on the agent. The old rancher threw down his tools, ran as fast as he could to the fence and yelled at the top of his lungs, "YOUR BADGE! SHOW HIM YOUR BADGE!"
