Take me to jail.
A Virginia State trooper pulled a car over on I-64 about 2 miles south of the
Virginia/ West Virginia State line.
When the trooper asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver said he
was a Magician and Juggler and was on his way to Beckley WV to do a show
at the Shrine Circus and he didn't want to be late.
The trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling and said if the driver
would do a little juggling for him then he wouldn't give him a ticket.
He told the trooper he had sent his equipment ahead and didn't have anything
The trooper said he had some flares in the trunk and asked if he could juggle them.
The juggler said he could, so the trooper got 5 flares, lit them and handed them to him.
While the man was juggling, a car pulled in behind the patrol car. A drunken good old
boy from North Carolina got out, watched the performance, then went over to the
patrol car, opened the rear door and got in.
The trooper observed him and went over to the patrol car, opened the door
asking the drunk what he thought he was doing.
The drunk replied, you might as well take my ass to jail,
cause there ain't no way I can pass that test.
