The police officer didn't reply at all, but just looked away.
The large man then asked again, but still no reply. After a few more
attempts which the police officer studiously ignored, the frustrated man
walked away. An onlooking pedestrian then walked up to the officer and asked,
"Officer, why didn't you tell that man where thirty-third and Sacramento was?"
The police officer replied,
"Thure, thure, and dit the thit ticked out of me!"
