"Excuse me, Sister, but are you all right," he asked. She replied, "Oh, yes, Officer. We're just fine. Was I doing something wrong?"
The Officer said, "Well, Sister, you were traveling way under the speed limit, and I was concerned that you might be having car trouble or something."
"But, Officer", the nun interrupted, "I saw a sign there about a mile back that said 24, and I know I wasn't going any faster than that."
Chuckling, the Trooper said, "Sister, that was a state highway route marker. This is State Route 24, not the speed limit. The speed limit signs have a MPH at the bottom."
"Oh, now don't I feel foolish!," replied the nun, turning red.
"That's okay, but please try to be more careful. I would hate to see you get hurt," finished the Officer. Then as he turned to say good-bye to the nuns in the back seat, he noticed for the first time that they were trembling violently and quite pale.
"Sister, what is wrong with your friends? Can I escort you to a hospital?" "Oh, no, they're all right." replied the Sister. "We just turned off of Route 135."
