Men with Badges


A task force consisting of a DEA agent, an ATF and an FBI agent arrive at a ranch in western Nebraska.

The agents tell the rancher, “We need to inspect your ranch for illegal drugs.”

“Help yourself,” the old rancher says, “but don’t go in that field over there.”

The DEA agent practically explodes. He whips out has badge, sticks it in the rancher’s face. “Mister, we have the authority of the Federal Government behind us,” he sneers, “and we’ll go anywhere we feel like going. Got it?!”

“Yes, sir,” the rancher says.

“Good,” the agent says. “Now you can go about your chores while we go about ours.”

A few minutes later, the old rancher hears screams and looks up to see the agents in the field he warned them about. All three are running for their lives — close behind is his biggest, meanest bull. With every step the bull is gaining ground on the agents. They are clearly terrified.

The old rancher immediately throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs…

“Your badges! Show him your badges!”
