A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a Texas deputy sheriff . He thinks he is smarter than the Deputy, because he is sure that he has a better education. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the deputy`s expense. Deputy: "License and registration, please." Lawyer: "What for?" Deputy: "You didn`t come to a complete stop at the stop sign." Lawyer: "I slowed down, and no one was coming." Deputy: "You still didn`t come to a complete stop. License and registration, please." Lawyer: "What`s the difference?" Deputy: "The difference is, you have to come to a complete stop, that`s the law. License and registration, please!" Lawyer: "If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I`ll give you my license and registration and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and no ticket." Deputy: "Exit your vehicle, sir." At this point, the deputy takes out his nightstick, starts beating the ever-loving crap out of the lawyer, and asks him, "Do you want me to stop or just slow down?"
