Funny Arrogance of Authority

I made a post yesterday that topical steroids are safe for kids with eczema and one blogger ask if I could make one article regarding nose bleed more specifically for kids. So as I was trying to gather information and in trying to dig deeper into the issue I stumble into a hilarious article called “The Arrogance of Authority”. I don’t have any offensive intention or derogatory remarks but simply sharing it as it has been shared anywhere.

A DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) officer stopped at a ranch in Texas, and talked with an old rancher. He told the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs."

The rancher said, "Okay, but don't go in that field over there.....", as he pointed out the location.

The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, "Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me!" Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removed his badge and proudly displayed 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 answers given!! Have I made myself clear......do you understand?!!"

The rancher nodded politely, apologized, and went about his chores.

A short time later, the old rancher heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by the rancher's big Santa Gertrudis bull......

With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified.

The rancher threw down his tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of his lungs.....

(And here’s my favorite part…!)

"Your badge, show him your BADGE........ Show him your BADGE!!"
