This Farmer’s Speed Trap Works Wonders


A farmer was so concerned about drivers speeding down the country lane where he lived and endangering his sheep that he asked the police to put up a sign. The Police put up a ‘Slow’ sign, but it had no effect. Then they erected a ‘Hazard Ahead’ sign, but that had no effect either. Finally they tried a ‘Children Crossing’ sign, but still the motorists failed to reduce their speed.

As a last resort the farmer asked the police if he could put up his own sign. The police agreed and when an officer called on the farmer a week later to see whether there had been any improvement, he was amazed to see the traffic crawling slowly along the lane. The Policeman noticed the farmer’s handmade sign by the roadside.

It read ‘Nudist Colony.’
