The name's just Fred...

A cop stops a Harley for traveling faster than the posted speed limit, so he asks the biker his name.

"Fred," he replies.

"Fred what?" the officer asks.

"Just Fred," the man responds.

The officer is in a good mood and thinks he might just give the biker a break and write him out a warning instead of a ticket. The officer then presses him for the last name.

The man tells him that he used to have a last name but lost it. The officer thinks that he has a nut case on his hands but plays along with it. "Tell me, Fred, how did you lose your last name?"

The biker replies, "It's a long story, so stay with me. I was born Fred Dingaling. I know - a funny last name. The kids used to tease me all the time, so I stayed to myself, studied hard and got good grades. When I got older, I realized that I wanted to be a doctor. I went through college, medical school, internship, residency, and finally got my degree, so I was Fred Dingaling, MD. After a while I got bored being a doctor, so I decided to go back to school. Dentistry was my dream! Got all the way through school, got my degree, so then I was Fred Dingaling, MD, DDS. Got bored doing dentistry, so I started fooling around with my assistant and she gave
me VD, so now I was Fred Dingaling, MD, DDS, with VD. Well, the ADA found out about the VD, so they took away my DDS. Then I was Fred Dingaling, MD, with VD. Then the AMA found out about the ADA taking away my MD because of the VD, so they took away my MD leaving me as Fred Dingaling with VD. Then the VD took away my Dingaling, so now I am Just Fred."

The officer walked away in tears, laughing.

That was a good and difficult one!

For me, this is the best way to learn the english language.

All the best

Thanks again June!

I agree with Tapio that June's joke selection improves our English.
After enjoying them for several years it was no longer difficult to understand this one immediately. We just have to guess the acronyms like VD, which were not taught at school, at least not in 50's and 60's.

Back in the 40's we didn't know much about what VD meant. I remember riding a train during WWII and there were posters all over warning people in the military about VD. At first we young girls didn't know what it was all about! When I worked for the federal government they first came out with all those designations like Dod, BuPers, NavComp, CinC, etc. and we had to learn what all of them meant. And I remember one of the first things we civilians had to learn were the stripes, stars, etc. on uniforms so we would know the rank of each military person. Luckily I had no problem identifying an Admiral because we had several of them in nearby offices, including the top Admiral of the US Navy.
