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!)
