Recently a routine police patrol parked outside a bar in Bandera, Texas,
staked out, the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so intoxicated
that he could barely walk. The man stumbled around the parking lot for a
few minutes, with the officer quietly
observing. After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five
different vehicles, the man managed to find his car which he fell into.
-- -- He sat there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left
the bar and drove off.

Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a
fine, dry summer night) -- -- flicked the blinkers on, then off a couple
of times, honked the horn and then switched on the lights. -- He moved
the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained
still for a few more minutes as some more of the other patron vehicles
left. At last, the parking lot empty, he pulled out of the parking lot
and started to drive slowly down the road. The police officer, having
patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on
the flashing lights, and promptly pulled the man over and carried out a
breathalyzer test. To his amazement the breathalyzer indicated no
evidence of the man having consumed any alcohol at all! Dumbfounded, the
officer said, "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the police
station. This breathalyzer equipment must be broken." "I doubt it," said
the truly proud Texan. "Tonight I'm the designated decoy."
