Yesterday I had a flat tire on the interstate. So I eased my car over to the shoulder of the road, carefully got out of the car and opened the trunk.

I took out two cardboard men, unfolded them and stood them at the rear of my car facing oncoming traffic. They look so life like you wouldn't believe it!

They are in trench coats exposing their nude bodies to the approaching drivers.

Cars started slowing down looking at my lifelike men, which made it safer for me to work at the side of the road. And, of course, traffic started backing up. Everybody was tooting their horns and waving like crazy. 

It wasn't long before a state trooper pulled up behind me. He got out of his car and walked toward me. I could tell he was not happy.

'What's going on here?'

'My car has a flat tire,' I said calmly.

'Well, what are those obscene cardboard men doing here by the road?'

I couldn't believe that he didn't know.

So I told him, 'Helloooooo, those are my emergency flashers!
