Beware of Mister Fog

When I was pulled over for speeding, I told the officer, "I'm sorry, but the road seemed clear, and..."

 "How would you have reacted if Mister Fog had suddenly appeared?" he interrupted.

Annoyed at his patronizing manner, I replied, "I suppose I would've applied Mr. Brake and summoned up Mr. and Mrs. Headlight!"

Enunciating each syllable, the officer repeated, "How would you have reacted if mist.... or... fog had suddenly appeared?"
