Four Old Ladies in an Impala

I was asked by a friend and fellow writer to contribute an anecdote about getting out of a traffic ticket. I told her about the time I ran a yellow light and realized, too late, that there was a police officer waiting for the light to change. I panicked and slammed on the brakes, tires screaming, and landed smack in the middle of the intersection, directly in front of the squad car. I had no choice but to clear the intersection, tailpipe between my legs, and drive slowly through what was by then a red light.

Yes, I was promptly pulled over.

No, I did not get a ticket. But that's another story.

Then I remembered this gem from Youtube. I know this has been around for a long time, but it never gets old.

Pam, it's a good thing my husband was off his conference call when I played this, because I laughed so hard, tears were rolling down my face! Good one.

Thanks for stopping by, Robert!

Laughingwolf, I'm not sure about that (although part of me is saying "Go Toronto! My home town!!") Snopes hasn't confirmed it's a hoax, and to be honest, I don't care because just hearing that guy laugh cracks me up EVERY time.
