There's a speed limit in this state Mr. Neff. 45 mph.
How fast was I going officer?
I'd say around 90.
Suppose you get down off your motorcycle and give me a ticket?
Suppose I let you off with a warning this time?
Suppose it doesn't take?
Suppose I have to whack you over the knuckles?
Suppose I burst out crying and rest my head on your shoulder.
Suppose you try putting it on my husband's shoulder?
That tears it.
