Our small town had a traffic cop when I was young that we used to call “Stickler Stanley” He was one of those people that was never going to drink on July 4th, and was always early for work even when he had the day off, just to be able to go out and hunt for traffic violations.
He certainly made my town’s roads a little safer, but that was hard to appreciate when he pulled you over for going 2 mph above the speed limit.
In this novel the mean cop is just like Stickler Stanley. And I wish I was as smart as this little girl, excited for him to make a funny comeback!
For months, 5-year-old Emma had needed a motorcycle, and she was overjoyed having a brand new blue one for Christmas.
Little Emma was a quick learner and eventually, without needing to use the training wheels, she was riding around. She spent much of her time racing up and down her street, but she soon became bored with biking again and again in the same place, so she decided to go out and explore the neighborhood.
She was surprised to see a cop riding on a towering horse, after a few minutes of cycling. She loved horses, so she biked the police officer up there and said hi.
Not the reply he was expecting
The cop on the horse raised his eyebrows, leaned down and asked Emma, “That’s a nice bike you’ve got there. Did Santa get you that?”
“Yes,” Emma replied proudly.
The cop frowned and said, “Well, tell him to put a reflector light on it next year!”
He took out his notebook and handed her a traffic ticket for $5.
Emma examined the ticket for a few seconds, and then looked up at the cop and said, “That’s a nice horse you’ve got there, did Santa get you that?”
The cop chuckled and replied, “He sure did!”
“Well,” she said, “next year tell Santa that the d*ck goes under the horse, not on top of it!”
Now there’s a kid with gumption! SHARE if you laughed!
