A man was speeding down the highway one day when all of a sudden he sees a state trooper behind him with his lights on. The man starts speeding up and thinks about trying to get away, but reluctantly pulls over for the officer.
The officer asks for license and registration. The man calmly handed everything over. Then the officer asks "Do you know why I pulled you over, sir?"
The man says "Yes sir, I realize I was speeding and I'm really truly sorry for it."
The officer pauses to think for a minute, then replies. "Well, I have had a really bad day, and I appreciate you cooperating unlike everyone else I pulled over today. If you can tell me a really good excuse for what you just did, I'll let you go."
The man looks down for a second and says "Well, about a month ago my wife ran off with a state trooper. I thought it was you, and I thought you were bringing her back."
"Have a nice day, sir."
