Mr Savvy’s Santa Gertrudis Bull
A particularly arrogant federal officer pulled in at Shrewd A. Savvy’s farm out past Wilmer and strutted out of his car like the cock of the walk. “I need to inpsect your ranch for illegal plants.”
Mr Savvy said, “Okay , but don’t go in that field over there…..”, as he pointed towards the pasture out by the creek.
The officer verbally exploded saying, ” Mister, I have the authority of the United States Federal Government with me!”
Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removed his badge and proudly displayed it to Mr Savvy.
“See this badge? This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish. On any land, any time, any where – for any reason! No questions asked or answers given! Have I made myself clear……do you understand ?”
Mr Savvy smiled and nodded politely, apologized, and went about his chores.
A short time later, the farmer heard loud screams, he looked up in the direction of the screams, and saw the officer running for his life, being chased by Gus, Mr Savvy’s prize-winning and mean Santa Gertrudis bull.
With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he’d sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified.
Mr Savvy could not help himself, he threw down his tools, ran over to the fence and yelled at the top of his lungs…..
“Your badge. Your badge. Show him your badge!”
