Today’s #jokeoftheday is about a man who bought a new car after his wife left him only to be stopped by a police officer for exceeding the speed limit.
The end of a relationship can often be difficult and heartbreaking, but it was the total opposite for this man named Peter. The day his wife left him was the best day of his life, and he purchased a new car to commemorate the milestone.
Later that evening, he took the new whip for a ride on the interstate. He opened the top and allowed the breeze to blow his hair and fill him in. He was enjoying the process and decided to press the pedal to increase the speed.

The speedometer moved to 80 mph, but his thrill was immediately cut short by the flashing red and blue lights and the loud siren of the police car behind him. Upon realizing that he was going to be pulled over, Peter thought:
“There’s no way they can catch this car.”

He pressed the pedal some more and increased his rate to 90 mph and then 100 mph before he came to his senses and realized that he was breaking the law. In remorse, he pulled over and waited for the officer to approach him.
The officer walked up to him, took his license without saying anything, and examined the document. He looked at the car’s particulars and, after a long silence, said that it had been a long day and the end of his Friday shift.

The cop continued, “I don’t feel like more paperwork, I don’t need the frustration or the overtime, so if you can give me a really good excuse for your driving that I haven’t heard before, you can go.”
Peter gave it a long, hard thought before saying that his nagging wife ran away with a cop last week and he was scared that the officer was trying to give her back when he saw the car. The officer smiled, handed him his license, and told him to have a nice day.
Another similar joke tells the story of a circus performer who was pulled over by the police for speeding. While the officer was writing the ticket, she looked into the car and noticed many machetes. She asked what they were for, and the circus performer responded, saying it was for his act as a juggler.
The cop was skeptical and asked the performer to show her an act. So, he got out of the car and began juggling. He started with just three and, with each juggle, added a machete until it became seven.
He performed excellently well, blowing the officer’s mind when a car driving by stopped and the driver exclaimed, “My God. I’ve got to give up drinking! Look at the test they’re giving now.”
