    A cowboy in Montana got pulled over by a State Trooper for
    speeding. The trooper started to lecture the cowboy
    about his speeding, and in general began to throw his weight around to
    try to make the cowboy feel uncomfortable.

    Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the ticket. As he was
    doing that, he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his

    The cowboy said, "Having some problem 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 cowboy says, "Well, circle flies are common on ranches. 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, "Are you trying to call me a
    horse's ***?"

    The cowboy 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 cowboy says,"Hard to fool them flies though."
