One evening, a French policeman pulled over and stopped a car that had English license plates.
He got out, walked up to the window, which the Englishman politely wound down and then asked him if he had been drinking.
With great difficulty, as he was obviously well sloshed, the Englishman admitted that he had been drinking all day.
He told the policeman that his daughter had got married that morning and that he drank champagne and a few bottles of wine at the reception, then drank a number of single malt scotches after that.
The French policeman proceeded to give the Englishman an alcohol breathalyzer test and verified that he was indeed totally sloshed.
He asked the Englishman if he knew why, under French Law, that he was going to be arrested.
The Englishman answered with a bit of humour, “No sir, I do not! But while we are asking questions, do you realize that this is a British car and that my wife is driving . . . on the other side?”
