Hilarious. He's dead-on.

Police Comments

These 16 Police Comments were taken off actual police car videos around the country:

#16 "You know, stop lights don't come any redder that the one you just went through."

#15 "Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch after you wear them a while."

#14 "If you take your hands off the car, I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document."

#13 "If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."

#12 "Can you run faster than 2700 feet per second? Because that's the speed of the bullet that'll be chasing you."

#11 "You don't know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?"

#10 "Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I'm the shift supervisor?"

#9 "Warning! You want a warning? O.K., I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket."

#8 "The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?"

#7 "Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs and step in monkey poop."

#6 "Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."

#5 "In God we trust, all others we run through NCIC."

#4 "How big were those 'Just two beers' you say you had?"

#3 "No sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we can."

#2 "I'm glad to hear that Chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail."

AND THE WINNER IS . . .

#1 "You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? You're right, we don't. Sign here.

MONEY & HAPPINESS QUOTES

"All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy."
— Anonymous

"What's the use of happiness? It can't buy you money."
— Henry Youngman

"Some people will do anything for money - even work."
— P.K. Shaw

"It isn't necessary to be rich and famous to be happy. It's only necessary be rich."
— Alan Alda

"This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy."
—Douglas Adams

"We live by the Golden Rule. Those who have the gold make the rules."
— Buzzie Bavasi

"Money can't buy you happiness, but it can buy you a yacht big enough to pull up right alongside it."
— David Lee Roth

"While money doesn't buy love, it puts you in a great bargaining position."
— Anonymous

"Too many of us look upon Americans as dollar chasers. This is a cruel libel, even if it is reiterated thoughtlessly by the Americans themselves."
— Albert Einstein

"Always borrow money form a pessimist, he doesn't expect to be paid back."
— Author Unknown

"Some men worship rank, some worship heroes, some worship power, some worship God and over these ideals they dispute, but they all worship money."
— Mark Twain
