The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said – “Well, yeah, if
that’s what they are, I never heard of circle flies”.

So the farmer says- “Well, circle flies are common on farms. See,

The trooper says, “Oh,” and goes back to writing the ticket. Then

horse’s behind.”

The Trooper says, “Well, that’s a good thing,” and goes back to
writing the ticket.

After a long pause, the farmer says, “Hard to fool them flies though.”
