An Ohio Sheriff stops at a farm in rural Ross County
and talks with an old farmer.

He tells the farmer, 'I need to inspect
your ranch for illegal grown drugs...'

The old farmer says, 'Okay, but don't go in that field over there.'

The Sheriff verbally explodes saying,
'Mister, I have the authority of the
Sheriffs Department with me.' Reaching
into his rear pant pocket and
removing his badge. The officer proudly
displays it to the farmer.
'See this badge? This badge means
I am allowed to go wherever
I wish..on any land. No questions asked
or answers given.
Have I made myself clear?
Do you understand?'

The old farmer nods politely and
goes about his chores.

Later, the old farmer hears loud screams
and spies the Sheriff running for
his life and close behind is the farmer's bull.

With every step the bull is gaining ground
on the officer. The Sheriff is clearly terrified.

The old farmer immediately throws down
his tools, runs to the fence and yells
at the top of his lungs.....

'Your badge!
Show him your badge Smartass!
