A friend of a friend was on his way south for Spring Break. Flying down I-95, he heard the sound of police sirens behind him. He pulled over, and a big Georgia cop soon strolled up to his window.
“Son, you know why I pulled you over?”
Probably the New Jersey license plates, thinks the kid.
“Speeding,” says the cop. “And I thought your hair was green.”
After some confusion they realize the reflection of the surf board in the back seat makes it look like the driver’s blond hair is green.
“You can give me a ticket for having green hair?” asks the kid.
The old-school Southern cop is visibly annoyed and leans menacingly into the car.
“Well, Son,” he says. “Let me tell you this. No one goes through Georgia that fast.”
The kid looks at the cop.
“Sherman did,” he says.
The kid was a little late getting to Spring Break after that.
