True story time...
All trucks and trailers traveling on Interstate 10 in Florida are required to stop for agricultural inspection at an inspection station between Tallahassee and Jacksonville. A friend of mine pulled into said inspection station while hauling his horse trailer and happened to be in line behind a truck carrying animals belonging to a petting zoo. When the menagerie truck got to the inspection point, the driver handed the inspection agent his manifest and opened the rear door so the agent could verify that the stated animals were on board. The agent checked the manifest against the animals and came up short one llama. The agent asked about this and the driver explained that the llama was an irritable traveler and it would be best if the agent just took the driver's word for it that there was a llama behind the closed door. The agent said that wouldn't do, that the driver would have to let him see the llama. So, the driver opened the door and the llama promptly spat a huge gob of masticated llama feed into the agent's face. The driver then closed the door, said "I told you so," and handed the inspection agent a bandana.
When it became my friend's turn to be inspected, he told the still dripping agent he had "Four horses. No llamas."
