A London lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by an Irish Garda (Irish Cop).
He thinks that he is smarter than the cop because he is a lawyer, from London , and is certain that he has a better education than any Paddy cop.
He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Garda’s expense!
Irish Garda says,’ License and registration, please.’
London Lawyer says, ‘What for?’
Irish Garda replies, ‘You didn’t come to a complete stop at the Stop sign.’
London Lawyer says, ‘I slowed down, and no one was coming.’
Irish Garda says, ‘You still didn’t come to a complete stop. License And registration, please.’
London Lawyer says, ‘What’s the difference?’
Irish Garda says, ‘The difference is, you have to come to complete stop, that’s the law. License and registration, please!’
London Lawyer says, ‘If you can show me the legal difference between ‘slow down’ and ‘stop’, I’ll give you my license and registration and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.’
Irish Garda says, ‘Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir.’
The London lawyer exits his vehicle. The Irish Garda takes out his baton and starts beating the lawyer with it and says, ‘Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?’
