    A DEA officer stops at a ranch in Wyoming, and talks with
    an old rancher.
    He tells the rancher, I need to inspect your ranch for
    illegally grown drugs.

    The old rancher says, Okay, but do not go in that field
    over there as he points out the location.

    The DEA officer verbally explodes saying, "Mister, I
    have the authority of the Federal Government with me. Reaching into his
    rear pants pocket, he removes his badge and proudly
    displays it to the farmer.
    See this badge? This badge means I am allowed
    to go wherever I wish on any land. No questions asked or answers given.
    Have I made myself clear?
    Do you understand?"

    The old rancher nods politely, apologizes, and goes about
    his chores.
    A short time later, the old rancher hears loud screams and
    sees the DEA officer running for his life, chased close behind by the
    rancher's prize bull.
    With every step the bull is gaining ground on the
    officer, and it seems likely that he'll get horned before he reaches
    safety.
    The officer is clearly terrified.

    The old rancher throws down his tools, runs to the fence
    and yells at the top of his lungs.

    "Your badge! Show him your badge!"

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
