Paddy tells Mick he is thinking of buying a Labrador.
Mick says, "Are you mad? Have you seen how many of their
owners go blind?"
A true story from Mount Isa in Queensland.
Recently a Police patrol car parked outside a local pub. Late in the evening the officer
noticed a man leaving the bar so intoxicated that he could barely walk.
The man stumbled around the car park for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys in 5 vehicles. The man managed to find his car, which he fell into. He was there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off.
Finally, he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine dry night.) Then flicked the indicators on, then off, tooted the horn and then switched on the lights.
He moved the vehicle forward a few metres, reversed a little and then remained stationary for a few more minutes as some more vehicles left. At last he pulled out of the car park and started to drive slowly down the road.
The Police officer, having waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and carried out a random breathalyzer test. To his amazement, the breathalyzer indicated no evidence of the man's intoxication. The police officer said, "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the Police station - this breathalyzer equipment must be broken..."
"I doubt it," said the man, "tonight I'm the designated decoy."
