MORE FROM PAUL HARVEY #24

Here areĀ two moreĀ timeless items from Paul Harvey’s For What It’s Worth:

Our For What It’s Worth Department reads Bo Whaley in the Dublin, Georgia, Courier Herald . . .

He reports a local third-grade geography assignment was for each pupil to stand and recite in a single sentence what he or she liked most about his or her home state of Georgia.

It was a third-grade girl who said, quote:

“I think we have the most beautiful state in the whole world; of course, I may be a little pregnant.”

End quote.

Our For What It’s Worth Department visits Raleigh, North Carolina, where a state cop stopped an obviously drunk driver.

While he was ticketing the man, there was a multicar accident on the other side of the divided highway.

The highway patrolman told the drunk to wait.

The patrolman went across the highway to sort out the accident.

After a while the drunk figured he’d waited long enough and he drove on home and told his wife that if anybody asked she should say he had been in bed with the flu all day.

Within the hour two state patrolmen appeared at the home of the drunk driver and asked to see him.

He came from the bedroom wrapped in a robe and coughing and wheezing.

The patrolmen asked if he had been driving that evening and he said he’d been sick in bed.

They apologized for bothering him and asked if they could take a look at his car.

The wrapped-up drunk escorted them to the garage and inside was–a highway patrol car, the blue lights still flashing.
