On his way home, after a very hard day, a highly successful trial lawyer decided to give his new 4WD Porsche Cayenne a bit of burst down the highway.
At just over 100mph, flashing lights appeared in the mirrors. Knowing he could easily outrun the police car, he pushed it to 150. Then sanity prevailed; he slowed down and pulled over to accept the consequences.
After observing that the driver wasn’t drunk, or some sort of whacko, the officer said. “Look, I’m just finishing my shift and I don’t really want to tie myself down with another half hour of paperwork. If you can give me a damn good excuse for speeding, I’ll consider letting you off.”
The lawyer thought for a minute, then said, “I’m very sorry officer, but my wife left me last week and moved in with a cop.”
“What has that got to do with speeding?”
“Well, I thought it could be you and you were trying to give her back.”
“Have nice night, sir.”
