Lucid Explanation

A motorcycle cop had just pulled over a red Porsche after it had run a stop sign.

"May I see your driver's license and registration please?

"What's the problem, officer?"

"You just ran that stop sign back there."

"Oh come on, pal, there wasn't a car within miles of me."

"Nevertheless, sir, you are required to come to complete stop, look both ways, and proceed with caution."

"You gotta be kidding me."

"It's no joke, sir."

"Look, I slowed down almost to a complete stop, saw no one within twenty miles, and proceeded with caution."

"That's beside the point, sir. You are supposed to come to a complete stop, and you didn't. Now, if I may see your license and..."

"You've got a lot of time on your hands, pal. What's the matter, all the donut shops closed?"

"Sir, I'll overlook that last comment. Let me see your license and registration immediately."

"I will, if you can tell me the difference between slowing down and coming to a complete stop."

The policeman had enough.

"Sir, I can do better than that."

He opened the car door, dragged the rude motorist out, and proceeded to methodically beat him over the head with his nightstick.

"Now, sir, would you like for me to slow down or come to complete stop?"
