A circus performer is late to his next gig

Driving as fast as he can, he is soon pulled over by the police. The cop asks for his license, registration, and proof of insurance, and then asks him where he was going so fast.

“Well, officer, I’m a circus performer, and I’m headed to Springfield to do my juggling act, and I’m late.”

The officer looks at him and says “Juggling act, huh? Circus, eh? Well I happen to really love the circus, and I’m just at the end of my shift, so if you do your act for me, I’ll let you off with a warning.”

“Absolutely, officer.” So the performer gets out his gear, and starts juggling bowling pins. The cop is smiling now. The performer gets out his unicycle, and starts juggling while riding the unicycle. The cop is laughing and clapping. The performer puts away the bowling pins and gets out his pyro sticks and lights them on fire, and is juggling them while still on his unicycle.

Just then, a car drives past, then slams on its brakes. The car backs up to just in front of the performers car, the driver gets out, and walks back to the police car, opens the back door, and gets in.

The cop goes to investigate. “Sir, what are you doing in the back seat of my car?”

“Well,” the man says, “I’m drunk, and if that’s the new sobriety test, I give up.”
