Your joke reminds me of a real life experience. In 1988 or 1989 I was working for OMC, Evinrude/Johnson Outboards and Cobra Stern Drives. One Sunday I was heading to the Stern Drive plant in Jackson, TN and had some time to kill so was taking a leisurely drive from Nashville on the two lanes. Nice, cool day with about 1/2" inch of light fluffy snow on the ground and I was taking my time driving the speed limit (for once).
Well one of those "characteristic" old small town southern sheriff pulled me over. Pot bellied, revolver in a flap over holster, thick southern accent, big hat, etc.... My first thought was great, this Yank won't ever be heard from again and I was nervous because I couldn't figure what I was doing wrong.
He said in a thick southern drawl, "Son, don't know if you know this or not but that white sh!t is snow, and it's slippery. I'm gonna have to write you up for Too Fast For Conditions. License and registration." Handed him my Wisconsin drivers license, the rental car papers and waited for my poison. He didn't get past the rear bumper on my car before turning around and coming back to the drivers window. "Son, you live in Wisconsin all your life?" Yes Sir. "We'll slow down and stop encouraging the locals, they just don't understand this sh!t like you Yanks do!"
And I was off, no ticket, nothing. But I did drive slower that day.
