    Circle Flies

    A farmer got pulled over by a state trooper for
    speeding, and the trooper started to lecture the
    farmer about his speed, and in general began to
    throw his weight around to try to make the
    farmer uncomfortable.

    Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the
    ticket, and as he was doing that he kept swatting
    at some flies that were buzzing around his head.
    The farmer said, "Having some problems with
    circle flies there, are ya?"

    The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said-
    "Well yeah, if that's what they are-I never
    heard of circle flies."

    So the farmer says-"Well, circle flies are
    common on farms. See, they're called circle
    flies because they're almost always found
    circling around the back end of a horse."

    The trooper says, "Oh," and goes back to writing
    the ticket. Then after a minute he stops and says,
    "Hey...wait a minute, are you trying to call me a
    horses ass?"

    The farmer says, "Oh no, officer. I have too much
    respect for law enforcement and police officers to
    even think about calling you a horses ass."

    The trooper says, "Well, that's a good thing," and
    goes back to writing the ticket.

    After a long pause, the farmer says, "Hard to fool
    them flies though."
