To Slow or Stop

A guy goes through a stop sign in Chester and gets caught by a policeman.

Cop says, “License and registration please.”

Guy says, “What for?”

Cop says, “You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign.”

Guy says, “I slowed down, and no one was coming.”

Cop says, “You still didn’t come to a complete stop. License and registration, please.”

Guy says, “What’s the difference?”

Cop says, “The difference is, you have to come to a complete stop. License and registration, PLEASE!”

Guy says, “If you can show me the difference between slow down and stop I’ll give you my license and registration.”

Cop says, “Okay, exit your vehicle sir.”

At this point, the cop takes out his truncheon and starts beating the guy and says, “Now sir, do you want me to slow down or stop?”
