The Badger

Posted By: Brad  //  Category: Humor

I saw this recently and couldn’t resist re-posting it here.  I had to sanitize it a bit, but I think it’s just as funny without the foul language.  Here goes.


A DEA officer stopped at a ranch in Texas to inquire of an old rancher.  He told the rancher, “I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs.”

“Okay,” the rancher said compliantly, but be sure not to go in that field over there,” pointing off to the right.

The DEA officer verbally exploded:  “Mister, I have the authority of the federal government with me!”

Reaching into his rear pants pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher.

See this freeekin’ badge?!  This badge means I can go wherever I want.  On any land!  No questions asked!  No answers given!  Have I made myself clear?  Do you understand?!

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

 A short time later, the old rancher smiled when he suddenly heard loud screams coming from the direction of the forbidden field. He looked up and saw the DEA officer running for his life – the rancher’s big Santa Gertrudis bull bringin’ up the rear.

 With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed like he’d sure enough get gored before he reached safety.

Seeing that the now somewhat humbler officer was clearly terrified and fixin’ to lose the race, the rancher threw down his tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of his lungs:

Your baaaaadge, man!!  Show him your freeeeekin’ baaaadge!!


This is one I wish I’d written.  To whoever did, thanks for the good story.  🙂  Feel free to claim it in my Comment section and I’ll be happy to give proper attribution.

Three Things That Might Make Grampas Laugh!

Posted By: Brad  //  Category: Boardman Views, Family, Humor

One thing about having lots of grandkids is the fact that you never know just what’s going to happen next.  Since I have ten of them, what’s coming “today” is always an adventure.  Take for example, one of my older granddaughters, Caitlin.

She was on Facebook recently describing a little event down at the gas station earlier that day.  This fact produced my first laugh.  The things they put on Facebook.

She’s always had an abundance of long gorgeous hair, but lately she’s been fooling around with the color.  Apparently, just prior to this episode she had one of those sessions at the beauty salon that didn’t go precisely as planned.

This produced my second grin. Well, okay. I laughed.

Caitlin: Got out to pump gas and the dude next to me screamed… I looked over at him and he said *oh gosh im sorry your hair scared me I thought you were going to rob the Gas station!!!     * i said No why would i do that.   He goes *your hair is ummmmm yeah* and drove off. Needless to say Im getting it darkened if not a different color! …The other guy in front of me pumping gas you could tell was trying not to laugh!

Caitlin’s Friend: That made my day .  🙂  Well the great thing about hair is it always grows out and you can always change it.  And that guy is paranoid if he thinks you’d rob a bank with hair that recognizable. Lol

I’m not gonna lie. Gramma and I were laughing so hard we almost cried.

“*Your hair is ummmmm yeah* and drove off.”  Hysterical!

We were just visualizing this whole thing and thinking of our dear granddaughter who has, over the years, had a bit of a fondness for getting stuff done to herself (e.g., tattoos, piercings, etc.) that, frankly, just doesn’t look good…at least to me.

To my credit, though, I’ve never screamed!

Well, that’s three.
