An email from a friend that I thought was worth sharing;
Dept of water and Rancher

A Department of Water representative stopped at a ranch and talked with
an old rancher. He told the rancher, “I need to inspect your ranch for
your water allocation.”

The old rancher said, “Okay, but don’t go in that field over there.”

The Water representative said, “Mister, I have the authority of Federal
Government with me. See this card? The card means I am allowed to go
WHEREVER I WISH on any agricultural land. No questions asked or
answered. “Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?”

The old rancher nodded politely and went about his chores. Later, the
old rancher heard loud screams and saw the Water Rep Running for the
fence and close behind was the rancher’s bull. The bull was gaining on
the Water Rep with every step. The Rep was clearly terrified, so the
old rancher immediately threw down his tools, ran to the fence and
shouted out…..

“Your card! Your card! Show him your card!”

Great one, Grumpy. It just goes to show that you can’t tell a bureaucrat anything – just let him go, and he’ll find out the hard way ;^D

Hahahahahahaha! Good one!

Here’s another:

This traveling bug repellent salesman comes to a farm, he hasn’t made a sale all week and is starving. He’s willing to deal. “Look” he tells the farmer, “You strip me naked, tie me up and spray me down with this bug repellent. Then I’ll spend the night in the pasture. Come morning, if I have one single bug bite on me, I’ll give you a whole case! Otherwise, you buy a whole case.”

Farmer figures this is an easy deal, so he strips him down, ties him up, sprays him all over and puts him in the pasture. Even gives him a chair to sit on so he won’t get cramped.

Next morning comes and the farmer finds the salesman totally exasperated and lying bound, in the grass. “Did the bugs get ya?” says the farmer. “No the bugs wouldn’t come near but doesn’t that damn calf have a mother?!”
