Tell A Cop A Joke Day.

It sounds like a joke, right?

This weapon of mass mirth is set to sweep the world in a few days time.
The 21st of May is Tell A Cop A Joke Day.

Warnings are being issued to police to be on their guard and treat all contact with their communities as potentially humorous.

This video is an example of how not to do it, though he did rather set himself up to be honest.

A kinder approach is encouraged in which the object of fun is a third party. Tom Winsor, 'The Mad Regulator', is a suitable butt of humour. He can take it.

Does anyone have any views?

Could Tell A Cop A Joke Day go viral?

COP JOKES! Don't mind if I do...

Q: How many cops does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: None. They'll just arrest the light for being broke and beat the room for being black.

Q: How many cops does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: Just one but they're never around when you need them.

Q: How many cops does it take to push a black guy down a flight of stairs?
A: None. He fell.

We have this game in my town amongst the locals called the "Push Ups for Pigs Program."
Every time you see a pig you drop down & do 10 push ups.

I wonder how many people will be arrested on this day, for telling a cop a joke. You know, because it is a most heinous crime and everything. In fact, I wonder how many people will be brutally beaten and murdered for telling a cop a joke on this day. I bet it'll be more than 1. You can't try and be human with these "people" so I guess we'll have to wait and see. I'd rather share a laugh with a friend, than have intentional contact with a pig. I know if I have a joke with a mate, then the joke will be taken as such. Try telling a pig a joke and you'll be nicked on trumped up charges.

I like the idea of the push ups program.
If they treat us right we can assist them.
If they treat us wrong we can turn them upside down and shake the baksheesh out of their pockets.

Unfortunately I can't change that. Years of indoctrination have resulted in a severely demoralised workforce. As with many therapies in severe cases complications and over-reactions can occur. Great care must be taken to make the object of fun unlikely to provoke violent retribution.
Try walking intently while keeping an eye on the cop in question then walk into a pole.

I will tell a cop a joke... I will walk up and say...

"Hey wanna hear something funny? People still actually think Police are here to help and that they "protect and serve"! Ain't that a hoot!"

Social media provides a useful buffer. Perhaps a youtube video or a few offerings on the good pages of ATS. We have to judge each situation as it comes.
When I had men with dogs and guns searching for me it didn't occur to me to jump up out of the bushes and tell them a joke.

When I reported animal cruelty that obviously wasn't going to stop and actually endangered people in the area I was 100% satisfied with the rank and file response. Less satisfactory was the attempt by a senior ranking policeman to spin it into a violent confrontation between myself and my neighbour.

If we look at how it is now, and imagine it a lot worse. Which would we choose?

We have to start somewhere improving the situation. Where there's a glimmer of hope insert some humour and watch it grow.

That brings us to the one rule of Tell A Cop A Joke Day.
Not while they're eating or drinking.

YES!! Now I can finally go and get pulled over for speeding just a little bit and hopefully the officer just gives me a warning then it's my time to shine. I will look right at the officer and ask him if I can have a ticket instead. “You want a ticket instead?” I will say “Yes, a ticket to the police officers ball.” Then hopefully he takes the bait because Id laugh so hard if he said it. lmao

A male driver is pulled over by a cop and the following conversation takes place:
Man: What's the problem officer?
Cop: You were going at least 75 in a 55 zone.
Man: No sir, I was going 65.
Wife: Oh Harry. You were going 80.
(Man gives his wife a dirty look.)
Cop: I'm also going to give you a ticket for your broken tail light.
Man: Broken tail light? I didn't know about a broken tail light!
Wife: Oh Harry, you've known about that tail light for weeks.
(Man gives his wife a dirty look.)
Cop: I'm also going to give you a citation for not wearing your seat belt.
Man: Oh, I just took it off when you were walking up to the car.
Wife: Oh Harry, you never wear your seat belt.
Man: Shut your mouth, woman!
Cop: Ma'am, does your husband always talk to you this way?
Wife: No, only when he's drunk.

I got out of a ticket once,while I was young.

I told the officer this.........(in no way am I disparaging Irish people)

Whats the difference between an Irish wedding,and an Irish funeral ?

One less drunk.........

The name on his badge was O Branan.
Sad to say,I was young,and I had a few beers also. I was 2 blocks away from my home. He "escorted" me back...........

(It could have went either way that night)

What do you call a clairvoyant little person who escaped from prison?
A small medium at large.


Traffic was backed up for miles, the police were going car to car. When they got to my car I asked the officer what was going on.
He said "It's O.J. again. He's up there threatening to set himself on fire! We are going car to car collecting donations."
"Donations!" I said, "How much you got so far?"
He said "about ten gallons."


On a rural road a state trooper pulled this farmer over and said: "Sir, do you realize your wife fell out of the car several miles back?"
To which the farmer replied: "Thank God, I thought I had gone deaf!"


A man went to the Police Station wishing to speak with the burglar who had broken into his house the night before.
"You'll get your chance in court." said the Desk Sergeant.
"No, no, no!" said the man.
"I want to know how he got into the house without waking my wife. I've been trying to do that for years!"
