A Drug Enforcement Agency officer Lincoln stops at a ranch in Memphis and talks with an old farmer.
Lincoln tells the farmer, “I need to review your ranch for illegally grown drugs.”
The farmer says, “Okay, but don’t go in that field over there,” as he points out with finger the location.
Officer Lincoln explodes saying, “Mister,I have the authority of the Federal Government with me.”
Reaching into his rear trousers pocket, he removes his rosette and proudly displays it to the rancher.
“See this rosette? This rosette means I am allowed to go wherever I wish… On everywhere.
No questions asked more or answers given back.
Lincoln says; “Have I made myself clear?Do you understand?”
The farmer nods politely and repeat again his concern that he should not go into the field.
“See this rosette?Lincoln yells again.
“This rosette means I am allowed to go wherever I wish… on everywhere.
No questions asked. Now Have I made myself clear? Do You Understand?”
The farmer shakes his head again and goes about his business.
A short time later, the old farmer hears loud screams and sees the Drug Enforcement Agency officer running for his life chased by the farmer’s giant Brangus 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.Lincoln is clearly horrified.
The farmer throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs…
“Your rosette,show him your rosette!”
