A police constable pulls a driver over for speeding:
Constable: May I see your driver’s license?
Driver: I don’t have one. It was suspended when I got caught over the limit.
Constable: Well then, may I see the papers for this vehicle?
Driver: It’s not my car. I stole it.
Constable: The car is stolen?
Driver: That’s right. But come to think of it, I think I saw the papers in the glove box as I was putting my gun in there.
Constable: There’s a gun in the glove box?
Driver: Yes sir. That’s where I put it after I shot and killed the person who owns this car and stuffed the body in the boot.
Constable: There’s a BODY in the BOOT?
Driver: Yes, sir.
Hearing this, the constable immediately calls for an armed response unit. The car was quickly surrounded by police, and an inspector approached the driver to handle the tense situation:
Inspector: Sir, can I see your license?
Driver: Certainly. Here it is.
The license is valid.
Inspector: Whose car is this?
Driver: It’s mine. Here are the papers.
The papers are in order.
Inspector: Could you slowly open your glove box so I can see if there’s a gun in it?
Driver: Yes, sir, but there’s no gun in it.
There’s no gun in the glove box.
Inspector: Would you mind opening the boot. I was told there’s a body in it.
Driver: No problem.
The boot is empty.
Inspector: I don’t understand it. The constable who stopped you said you told him you didn’t have a license, stole the car, had a gun in the glove box, and that there was a dead body in the boot.
Driver: Yeah, and I’ll bet the big, fat liar told you I was speeding too.
