The Reptile Bros.

When I was a kid in our hometown there was a pair of brothers who did field tile work. They were good guys but a little rough around the edges, if you know what I mean. They worked hard and played hard, nobody had ever given them anything, they got what they had from hard work.
They were well liked in the community, if for no other reason for the entertainment value!
One of them was tall and skinny, he was known as Snake, the other was short and stocky, he was Frog. Together they were known as the Reptile Bros.
We also had a state trooper in town who took his job, and himself quite seriously. I have nothing but the highest respect for good police officers, but they're people too, and there are a few who let their heads get a little big-this one was one of them.
Anyway,one day I was in the local cafe with some other guys, as was Mr. Super Trooper. He was sitting alone at a table in the far corner.
The dood burst open and in walked the Reptile bros. Frog, the designated spokesman for the pair, said, in a very audible voice, "HEY!! SMOKEY!!!" The Trooper ignored him.
Again--"HEY!! SMOKEY!!"
Again--Mr. Troper ignores Mr. Reptile.
And again for the third time. Meanwhile you could just see the hairs on the back of ol' Smokey's neck stand up!
After the third time, Frog walked up the the waitress and politely said, not quite as loud but still audibly, "Ma'am, I don't think this police officer could hear me when I was trying to get his attention, would you please tell him he forgot to turn off the lights on his squad car?"
Hope you weren't expecting a zinger of a punch line here, it was just a story I was reminded of a few minutes ago and decided to share with you!
