I thought this was worth a small chuckle. Its not mine but from my Superior thread newsletter.
An IRS agent stops at a ranch in Texas and talks with an old rancher. He tells the
rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch as part of your tax audit." The
rancher says, "OK , but don't go in that field over there," as he points out the location.
The IRS agent verbally explodes saying, "Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me." Reaching into his pocket, he removes his badge and pushes it into the rancher's face. "See this badge? This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish. Anywhere! On any property! No questions asked or answers given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?"
The rancher nods politely, apologizes, and goes about his chores.
A short time later, the old rancher hears loud screams and sees the IRS agent running for his life chased by the rancher's big champion bull. With every step, the bull is gaining ground on the agent, and it seems likely that he'll get gored before he reaches safety. The agent is terrified. The rancher throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs,
"Your badge! Show him your BADGE!"
