An FBI agent stops at a farm to see a local rancher.
He tells the rancher, “I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs.”
The rancher says, “Okay, but do not go in that field over there,” as he points out the location.
The FBI agent verbally explodes saying, “Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me.”
Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removes his badge and proudly displays it to the rancher.
“See this badge? This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish… On any land. No questions asked or answer given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand? “
The rancher nods politely, apologizes, and goes about his chores.
A short time later, the old rancher hears loud screams and sees the FBI agent running for his life chased by the rancher’s big Santa Gertrudis Bull…
With every step, the bull is gaining ground on the officer, and it seems likely that he’ll get gored before he reaches safety.
The agent is clearly terrified.
The rancher, in a slow southern drawl, rambles casually over to the fence before cupping his hands and shouting:
“Your badge… Show him your badge!”
