80 Mile an Hour Ticket

Boudreaux and Marie were speeding along on the Interstate 10, high rise bridge over Whisky Bay when Boudreaux saw the red-light flashing in the rearview window.

Boudreaux pulled over as well as he could to the side of the bridge.

The State Trooper walked up to the window with his clipboard in his hand. He asked, "Did you know that you were going 80 miles an hour and the speed limit on this bridge is 60?"

Boudreaux looked at the carpet of the truck for the cigarette he dropped. He said, "Nope. I was going 60."

The Trooper sounded fed up as he looked at his clip board and said, "Nope. I clocked you at 80."

The trooper looked over at Marie sitting looking out of the passenger window at the cypress trees in the water. The Trooper said,"Mam, I clocked the man at 80. He said he was going 60. Now you tell me. Was he going 60 or 80?"

Marie said, "I never argue with Boudreaux when he's been drinking."
