Bar Room Houdini

A deputy police officer responded to a report of a barroom disturbance. 

The "disturbance" turned out to be well over six feet tall and weighed almost 300 pounds.  What's more, he boasted that he could whip the deputy and the "Heavy Weight Boxing Champion of the World."

Said the policeman, "I'll bet that you're also an escape artist too, probably better than Houdini."

The giant nodded.

"If I had some chains," the deputy continued, "you could show us how strong you really are.  But all I've got is a set of handcuffs.  Why don't you see just how quickly you can break out of them?" Once in the cuffs, the man puffed, pulled and jerked for four minutes.

"I can't get out of these," the giant growled.

"Are you sure?" the deputy asked.

The fellow tried again.  "Nope," he replied.  "I can't do it."

"In that case," said the deputy, "you're under arrest."
