… and Proverbs 26:5 in the same joke.
A gentle farmer is tending to his farm, unloading a great deal of fertilizer from the back of his trailer. A Homeland Security Agent shows up to investigate why the farmer bought this potentially dangerous material. He begins to question the farmer and demands access to his barns and fields.
“OK”, said the farmer, “Just stay out of that large, rolling field over there.”
The Agent leans into the farmers face, reaches into his jacket pocket and whipping out his badge menaces, “DO YOU SEE THIS BADGE?!? This badge gives me the right to go wherever want and do whatever is necessary to complete my investigation. DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT?”
“No sir,” replied the farmer.
The Agent climbed over the fence and disappeared over a hill. After about 10 minutes the farmer hears a loud scream from the Agent and sees him bounding over the hill with a mad bull hot on his heels.
The farmer cries out, “SHOW HIM YOUR BADGE! SHOW HIM YOUR BADGE!”
Proverbs 26:4, 5
4Answer not a fool according to his folly,
lest you be like him yourself.
5 Answer a fool according to his folly,
lest he be wise in his own eyes.
