The Motorcycle Cop, the Judge and Fibber

Radio Guide advertisement

Fibber is pulled over for going through a red light.

MOLLY: My my, it’s awful hot driving in July, ain’t it, McGee?
FIBBER: July? This here’s April.
MOLLY: Sure, and in ninety days it’ll be July.
FIBBER: I’m a law-abidin’ citizen, and that there red light wasn’t lit. If it had ’a’ been lit, I’d ’a’ knew it was a red light. But a red light that ain’t lit ain’t a red light on account o’ because a light that ain’t lit ain’t a light. And if it’s got to be lit to be a red light, an’ it ain’t lit, then it ain’t a red light. If a red light is the kind of a red light a red light ought to be, it’d be a lit light and not a dead light. A dead red light ain’t no more a red light than a lit light is a dead light, and I claims that anytime my headlight sees a dead light, red light or no red light, and I ride right by the light, I’m in my right!
FIBBER: Folks, once upon a time there was two kids, Violet and Ray. You get it? Violet ray? They don’t get it, Molly.
MOLLY: ’Tain’t funny, McGee.
