True Story

As related by my father; Once, long ago, he rear ended a cop car Not a happy thing you know... The cop had stopped short But he wasn't the sort To admit what he ought He could find little reason for legal action, So he sought another sanction He had my father tested by a mental doc Who asked stupid questions You know that crock... His defining question, "What would you do if you saw a flying saucer?" Unflinching, my father replied, "I'd shoot it down with my battleship!" The doc scoffed, "And where'd you get your battleship?" Quick as a whip, he replied, "The same place you got your flying saucer!"
