This happened to an Englishman in France who was totally drunk.
The French policeman stops his car and asks the gentleman if he has
been drinking. With great difficulty, the Englishman admits that he
has been drinking all day, that his daughter got married in the morning
to a French man, and that he drank champagne and a few bottles of
wine at the reception and a quite few glasses of single malt thereafter.
Quite upset, the policeman proceeds to alcotest (breath test) him and
asks the Englishman if he knows under French Law why he is going to
The Englishman answers with humour: "No sir, I do not! But while
we're asking questions, do you know that this is a British car and my
wife is driving . . . on the other side !!
