    Mike Armstrong is the ex-cop from The Bob and Tom Show and as seen on Comedy Central. Mike's an ex-cop - He'd stop cars and warn the speeding drivers about the speed traps up ahead. “I think that when I quit the police department three other cops lost their jobs. They simply didn’t need that many internal affairs officers anymore!” His kids are funny, too. When asked by his teacher about his lucky rabbit's foot his son responded, “It was the only thing left in the trap… pretty lucky huh?” When the teacher called Dad to complain about the youngster’s behavior, Mike offered his true feelings . . . “Shut up! I’m not married to you!”
