The mayor of Sacrapinto, J.K.Choi, 35, was charged with hit-and-run driving last night by the town sheriff. A freshly killed calf was discovered lying in the middle of Arlington Drive at about 10:00 p.m. A witness, 20-year-old Emily Parker, said she saw the car hit the calf and keep going. She didn't see the driver but she did recognize the hood ornament on the car—a pair of bull horns.

"Oh, yes," Emily said, "I know that's the mayor's car. It's the only car in town with bull horns on the hood." Asked how she could see the bull horns at night, she replied, "Oh, didn't you know? A couple of months ago the mayor got his horns neonized, so they have this soft purple glow at night. They're really cool-looking."

The sheriff drove over to the mayor's house, which is about five miles from city hall, and found the mayor washing his 1972 Kadillac. He asked why the mayor was washing his car so late at night. "Because that's when there's no hot sun that causes the car to dry so fast that you have sun streaks. Don't you know anything, sheriff?"

The sheriff pointed out that one of the horns was broken at the tip. "When did that happen?" he asked. "When did what happen?" Choi asked. "Oh, good grief! I never even noticed that! Do you know how expensive these horns are? They don't grow on trees, you know. I wonder if I can find the missing piece and superglue it back on."

The sheriff then showed the mayor the tip of a bull horn. "Do you think this is the missing piece?" The mayor was astounded. He looked at it, turned it over in his hands, and then placed it on the horn, where it fit perfectly. "That's fantastic, sheriff! Thank you so much! Where did you find it?"

"Where did I find it? It was next to Farmer Brown's calf that you killed back there about an hour ago." The mayor's mouth dropped open. "Calf! What calf? What are you talking about? I had no idea. I thought I hit a speed bump. What was his calf doing out in the middle of the road in the middle of the night?

"We'll settle this in court. I'm an innocent man. By the way, get that calf over to Lester's butcher shop right now. We'll have us a big barbecue tomorrow at city hall. And don't forget to invite Farmer Brown. I know he'll forgive me after he tastes Lester's world-famous rib eye."

Thị trưởng từ chối đóng tiền phạt Đụng rồi bỏ chạy

Thị trưởng Sacrapinto, J.K. Choi, 35, đã bị phạt vì đụng rồi bỏ chạy tối qua bởi cảnh sát trưởng thị trấn. Một con bê được phát hiện nằm chết giữa đường Arlington Drive lúc 10:00 tối. Nhân chứng, Emily Parker, 20 tuổi, nói cô thấy chiếc xe đụng con bê rồi tiếp tục chạy. Cô không thấy người lái nhưng cô nhận ra cái mũ trang trí trên xe-một cặp sừng bò.

"Oh, vâng," Emily nói. "Tôi biết đó là chiếc xe của thị trưởng. Đó là chiếc xe duy nhất trong thị trấn có sừng bò trên nóc." Hỏi làm sao cô có thể thấy sừng bò trong đêm, cô trả lời, "Oh, anh không biết? Hai tháng trước thị trưởng gắn đèn neon lên sừng, nên chúng có màu tím nhạt lấp lánh vào đêm. Chúng nhìn rất đẹp."

Cảnh sát trưởng lái xe đến nhà thị trưởng, khoảng năm dặm từ quảng trường thành phố và thấy thị trưởng đang rửa chiếc xe 1972 Kadillac. Ông hỏi tại sao thị trưởng rửa xe trễ vào đêm. "Vì đó là lúc mặt trời không làm xe khô quá nhanh làm ra những vết rạn. Anh không biết gì sao, cảnh sát trưởng?"

Cảnh sát trưởng chỉ một chiếc sừng bị gãy ở đầu. "Chuyện đó xảy ra lúc nào?" Ông hỏi. "Chuyện đó xảy ra lúc nào?" Choi hỏi. "Oh, nỗi sầu khổ tốt đây! Tôi không nhận ra điều đó! Anh có biết cái sừng mắc như thế nào không? Chúng không mọc trên cây, anh biết đó. Tôi tự hỏi không biết tìm đâu phần bị mất để gắn keo lại."

Cảnh sát lúc đó đưa cho ông thị trưởng mẩu sừng bò. "Ông có nghĩ đây là phần bị mất?" Thị trưởng kinh ngạc. Ông nhìn nó, lật trong tay, và rồi đặt nó lên chiếc sừng, nơi nó vừa vặn hoàn hảo. "Thật tuyệt vời, cảnh sát trưởng! Cảm ơn nhiều! Ông tìm ra nó ở đâu vậy?"

"Tôi tìm ra nó ở đâu ư? Nó gần chổ con bê của ông nông dân Brown mà ông đã giết khoảng một giờ trước." Thị trưởng há hốc mồm. "Con bê! Con bê nào? Anh nói gì vậy? Tôi không biết gì. Tôi nghĩ tôi đụng phải một cái đụng tốc độ. Con bê của ông ta làm gì ngoài giữa đường giữa đêm thế?

"Chúng ta sẽ giải quyết việc này trong toà án. Tôi vô tội. Nhân tiện, hãy đem con bê đến tiệm mổ Lester bây giờ. Chúng ta sẽ ăn thịt nướng to vào tối mai tại quảng trường. Và đừng quên mới ông nông dân Brown. Tôi biết ông ta sẽ tha lỗi cho tôi sau khi nêm thử miếng sườn Leslter nổi tiếng thế giới.

J.K Choi, 35 tuổi, thị trưởng Sacrapinto, đã phủ nhận cáo buộc của cảnh sát trưởng thị trấn về việc lái xe gây ra tai nạn giao thông rồi bỏ chạy vào tối hôm qua. Một con bê vừa bị giết được phát hiện đang nằm giữa đường Arlington Drive vào khoảng 10 giờ tối. Emily Parker-20-tuổi, nhân chứng, cho biết cô thấy chiếc xe tông vào con bê và tiếp tục chạy. Cô không trông thấy người tài xế nhưng cô nhận ra vật trang trí trên mui xe-đó là một cặp sừng bò.

"Ồ, vâng," Emily nói, "Tôi biết đó là chiếc xe của thị trưởng. Đây là chiếc xe độc nhất trong thị trấn có sừng bò trên mui xe." Khi được hỏi làm sao cô thấy được sừng bò trên mui xe trong đêm tối như thế, cô trả lời, "À, ông không biết sao? Hai tháng trước đây thị trưởng đã gắn đèn nê-ông vào cặp sừng, vì thế nó có ánh sáng màu tím dìu dịu trong đêm. Chúng thật sự rất đẹp."

Cảnh sát trưởng lái xe qua nhà thị trưởng, nơi chỉ cách toà thị chính khoảng năm dặm đường, và thấy thị trưởng đang rửa chiếc xe Kadillac đời 1972 của mình. Ông hỏi tại sao thị trưởng lại rửa xe vào đêm hôm khuya khoắt như thế. "Bởi vì đó là lúc không có ánh mặt trời nóng rẫy làm cho xe ông khô nhanh đến nỗi có những đường sọc. Ông không biết điều gì cả sao, cảnh sát trưởng?"

Cảnh sát trưởng chỉ vào một trong những chiếc sừng bò bị gãy ở phần đầu. "Chuyện đó xảy ra khi nào?" Ông hỏi. "Chuyện gì xảy ra khi nào chứ?" Choi hỏi. "Ối, Trời đất ơi! Tôi cũng không nhận ra luôn! Ông biết mấy cái sừng bò này mắc tiền thế nào không? Ông biết rồi đấy, chúng đâu phải ở trên trời rơi xuống. Tôi tự hỏi mình có thể tìm được miếng đã bị mất hay không và dùng keo siêu dính dán nó lại.

Cảnh sát trưởng liền đưa thị trưởng xem phần đầu của chiếc sừng bò. "Cậu có nghĩ đây chính là miếng đã bị mất không? Ngài thị trưởng cực kỳ ngạc nhiên. Ông nhìn chăm chú, lật đi lật lại trên hai tay, và rồi đặt nó vào cái sừng, là nơi nó ăn khớp một cách hoàn hảo. "Thật tuyệt vời, cảnh sát trưởng! Cám ơn ông rất nhiều! Ông tìm thấy nó ở đâu vậy?"

"Tôi tìm thấy nó ở đâu sao?" Nó ở ngay bên cạnh con bê của Trang trại Brown mà anh đã giết rồi để lại đó cách đây một tiếng đồng hồ." Ngài thị trưởng há hốc miệng. "Con bê! Con bê gì chứ? Ông đang nói về cái gì thế? Tôi không biết gì cả. Tôi nghĩ tôi đụng vào một cái gờ giảm tốc. Vậy chứ con bê của ông ta làm gì giữa đường ngay giữa đêm khuya như thế?

"Chúng ta sẽ giải quyết vấn đề này tại toà án. "Tôi là một người vô tội. Tiện thể, hãy mang con bê sang chỗ hàng thịt Lester ngay thôi. Ngày mai, chúng ta sẽ có một buổi tiệc nướng đầy ý nghĩa tại toà thị chính. Và đừng quên mời ông chủ trang trại Brown. Tôi chắc chắn là ông ấy sẽ bỏ qua cho tôi sau khi ông ấy nếm món thịt nạc lưng bò nổi tiếng-thế giới của Lester.
