From the Smith County Pioneer

If you are blonde, Sorry!

- A game warden came upon three blondes who appeared to be fishing and asked to see their licenses. "But we aren't fishing. We have magnets on our lines to pick up debris from the bottom of the river," said one of the girls. When the warden left, one said to the others, "What a dumb cop, he doesn't even know that there are steelhead trout in the river."

- A blonde policeman stops a lady and asks for her license. He says, "Lady, it says here that you should be wearing glasses." The lady answered,  "Well, I have contacts."
The blonde policeman replied, "I don't care who you know, you are getting a ticket."
