A Matter Of Life Or Death

A police officer pulls a man over for speeding.

As the officer approaches the car, he can see that the man is very anxious about something.

“Good afternoon Sir. Do you know why I stopped you?”

“Yes, officer… I know I was speeding — but it is a matter of life or death.”

“Oh, really? How’s that?”

“There’s a naked woman waiting for me at home.”

“I don’t see how that is a matter of life or death.”

“If I don’t get home before my wife does, I’m a dead man.”
