A slightly imagined dialogue

OFFICER: Sir, I pulled you over because—hang on, what’s that medal?

ME (smiling embarrassedly): Oh, I got this at an adult spelling bee.

OFFICER (putting ticket book away): Nice work! What word did you win with?

ME: Actually, I came in fifth. It’s a funny story—

OFFICER (getting ticket book back out): Sir, do you know why I pulled you over today?

ME: Did I fail to yield at an 'i' before 'e' except after 'c'? Heheh. Just kidding—don’t spellcheck me, bro!

OFFICER: Your left brake light is out. Have a good day.

Addendum: This story is not true. (I actually came in THIRD place!)
