A young man was pulled over by the Mississippi State Police for speeding. The officer stepped out of his patrol car, adjusted his sunglasses, and swaggered up to the young man’s
window. “What chew driving so fast for, boy? You going to a fahhr? Let me see your license, boy.” The young man handed over his license.
Then the officer noticed that the back seat of the car was full of large knives. The officer said, “Tell me, boy, why you got them knives on that there back seat?”
The young man replied, “Well, sir, I’m a juggler.”
The officer spat some tobacco juice and then said, “A juggler; well, you don’t say. Boy, put cha hands on the trunk of yer car; you going to jail!”
The young man pleaded with the officer not to take him to jail. He offered to prove to the officer that he was a juggler by way of demonstration. He said, “You can even hold me at gunpoint while I juggle for you.” The officer reluctantly allowed him to prove his juggling ability while
he held him at gunpoint.
Two miles down the road at Joe’s Tavern, Billy Bub was drinking it up with Jerry Lee Jones. Billy Bub soon left and got into his old, rusty pickup truck. He proceeded down the road trying his best to stay on the right side. All of a sudden, Billy Bub spotted the most unbelievable sight of his life! He drove to the nearest phone booth and dialed the number for Joe’s Tavern and asked for his buddy, Jerry Lee.
When Jerry Lee got on the phone, Billy Bub said, “Whatever you do when you leave that tavern, don’t go north on Route 109. The state police are giving a sobriety test that nobody can pass!”
The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary — the evil it does is permanent.
