A cop stops at a ranch near Prince George and talks with the old gentleman who owns it.
He informs the rugged rancher, “I’m here to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs.” The rancher says, “Okay, but don’t go in that field over there,” pointing out the location.
The officer’s face goes red, veins pop out on his forehead and he verbally explodes, saying, “Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government of Canada with me.” Reaching into his pocket, he removes his badge and shoves it right in the rancher’s face. “You see this badge, buddy? This badge means that I am allowed to go wherever I wish, anytime that I want to. No questions asked. No answers given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?” The rancher nodded his head politely, softly apologized and went about his chores.
A short time later the old rancher hears someone screaming in absolute terror. He looks up and sees the officer running for his life, chased by the rancher’s huge bull. With every step, the bull is gaining ground on the officer and it appears likely that he’ll get gored by the bull’s horns, long before he reaches safety. The officer is clearly terrified.
The rancher throws down his tools and runs to the fence as fast as he can to help the officer. He climbs up on the fence and yells at the top of his lungs,”Your badge, buddy. Show him your BADGE!”
