Texas Sheriff's Deputy

VS

New York Lawyer

A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a sheriff's deputy. He thinks that he is smarter than the deputy because he is a lawyer from New York and is certain that he has a better education then any cop from Houston , TX . He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Texas deputy's expense.

The deputy says, 'License and registration, please.'

'What for?' says the lawyer

The deputy says, 'You didn't come to a complete stop at the stop sign.

Then the lawyer says, 'I slowed down, and no one was coming.'

'You still didn't come to a complete stop, Says the deputy. License and registration, please.'

The lawyer says, 'What's the difference?'

'The difference is you have to come to complete stop, that's the law. License and registration, please!' the Deputy repeats.

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.'

'That sounds fair. Please exit your vehicle, sir,' the deputy says.

At this point, the deputy takes out his nightstick and starts beating the daylights out of the lawyer and says, 'Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?'

Speaking of Deputies, I was working with one of Tarrant's finest last week when it got time for lunch. We were near Eagle Mtn. Lake headed back toward FTW via Saginaw, so he suggested The Great Wall Chinese Buffet on Saginaw Blvd.

Great Chinese food - I think I sampled nearly everything. Not a bite was less than delicious. And the owner could not have been friendlier.

Anyway, if you're in Saginaw 'round lunch time and you like Chinese, I can highly recommend this restaurant.
