Hi Y'all,

With apologies for the bw, just in from another list:

Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a
State Police Officer sees a car puttering along at 22 MPH.  He thinks to
himself, "This driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!"  So he turns on
his lights and pulls the driver over.

(Editor's note:  "Oh, Yeah?")

Approaching the car, he notices that there are five old ladies-two in the
front seat and three in the back-wide eyed and white as ghosts.

The driver, obviously confused, says to him, "Officer, I don't understand,
I was doing exactly the speed limit!  What seems to be the problem?"

"Ma'am," the officer replies, "you weren't speeding, but you should know
that driving slower than the speed limit can also be a danger to other

"Slower than the speed limit?  No sir, I was doing the speed limit
exactly...Twenty-two miles an hour!" the old woman says a bit proudly. The
State Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her that "22"
was the route number, not the speed limit.

A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing
out her error.

"But before I let you go, Ma'am, I have to ask...  Is everyone in  this car
OK? These women seem awfully shaken and they haven't muttered a single
peep this whole time," the officer asks.

"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute officer.  We just got off Route 119."
