Circle Flies

Read Time:53 Second

Once upon a time, an elderly farmer was pulled over by a state trooper for exceeding the speed limit. The officer, determined to emphasize the importance of road safety, delivered a stern lecture to the farmer.

As the trooper began writing up the ticket, he couldn’t help but swat at the persistent flies buzzing around his head. Observing this, the farmer commented, “Seems like you’re having trouble with those circle flies, officer.”

Intrigued, the trooper asked, “Circle flies? Why do you call them that?”

The farmer explained, “Well, they’re often found circling around the rear end of a horse.”

The trooper nodded absentmindedly, only half-listening as he continued his paperwork. However, a moment later, realization struck him, and he looked up sharply, “Hold on. Are you insinuating that I’m a horse’s rear?”

“Oh no, officer,” the farmer quickly reassured him with a tone of respect. “I would never say such a thing about the police.”

Relieved, the trooper replied, “Good.”

With a mischievous smile, the farmer added, “But it’s pretty hard to fool those circle flies.”
