So this Department of Water Resources representative stops at a Queensland agricultural property and talks with the old farmer. The Rep tells the farmer,"I need to inspect your farm for your water allocation". The old farmer says, 'Okay, but don't go in that paddock over there.' The Water rep smells a rat and says, 'Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me.. See this card? This card means I'm allowed to go WHEREVER I WISH on any agricultural land. No questions asked or answered. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?'" The old farmer nods politely and goes about his chores.
Later, the old farmer hears loud screams and sees the Water Rep running for his life. And close behind is the farmer's bull. The bull is gaining with every step.
The Rep is clearly terrified, so the old farmer immediately throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs......
'Your card! Your card! Show him your card!'
