Jeff Dunham Got Me Out of a Speeding Ticket!

This was sent to me by Chuck Field and I thought I would share it with everyone:


Hi Dan,
The first weekend of December had me performing in Milwaukee, Chicago and finally Indianapolis.
At about 10pm with 10 minutes left traveling on I-465 going 60 on a 55 speed limit, I was pulled over by a State Trooper.
When I opened the window, the policeman asked me for my license, proof of insurance and registration.
I asked why I was pulled over and he told me I was going 70mph. After I told him, that I was aware that I was over 55 but knew
I was going 60, he was a little annoyed and asked, “What brings you to Indianapolis sir”.
I answered…I am a Ventriloquist and have performances on Sunday.
With that, a big smile came over his face and said, “TRYING TO MAKE IT BIG LIKE JEFF DUNHAM EH”?
I answered, “Its a little to late for that” but I started doing this since age 10 and am still pretty busy.”
I also said, “SILENCE” and he laughed and handed me back my license and said,
“Don’t go over 55 and have some great shows tomorrow”.
