A Department of Agriculture representative stopped at a farm and talked
with an old Afrikaans farmer. He told the farmer, 'I need to inspect
your farm.' The old guy said, 'OK Boet, but do not go in that field
The Agriculture representative said, 'Mister, I have the authority of
the Government with me. See this card? The card means I am allowed to
go WHEREVER I WISH on any agricultural land. No questions asked or
answered. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?'
The old farmer nodded politely and went about his farm chores. Later,
the old farmer heard loud screams and saw the Agriculture Rep running
for the fence and close behind was the farmer's huge-horned prize bull.
The bull was gaining on the Agriculture Rep with every step.
The Rep was clearly terrified, so the old farmer immediately threw down his tools, ran to the fence and shouted:
'Your card! Your card, Boet! Show him your card!'!
