The Juggler

An Iowa State Trooper pulled a car over on I-80 near Des Moines. When the Trooper asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver answered that he was a juggler and he was on his way to Omaha to do a show that night at the Shrine Circus and didn't want to be late.

The Trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling, and if the driver would do a little juggling for him that he wouldn't give him a ticket.

The driver told the Trooper that he had sent all of his equipment on ahead and didn't have anything to juggle. The Trooper told him that he had some flares in the trunk of his patrol car and asked if he could juggle them. The juggler said that he could, so the Trooper got three flares, lit them and handed them to the juggler.

While the juggler was doing his act, a car pulled in behind the patrol car, and a drunk got out. He watched the performance briefly, then went over to the patrol car, opened the rear door and got in.

The Trooper observed him doing this and went over to the patrol car, opened the back door and asked the drunk what he thought he was doing.

The drunk replied, "You might as well take my ass to jail, cause there's no way in hell I can pass that test."
