    A farmer got pulled over by an Alabama 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, the Trooper stops and says, "Hey...wait a second, are you trying to call me a horse's ***?"

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

    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."
