A hip young man goes out and buys the best car available: a 1997 Ferrari GTO. It is also the most expensive car in the world and it costs him $500,000.
He takes it out for a spin and stops for a red light. An old man on a moped (both looking about 90 years old) pulls up next to him. The old man looks over at the sleek, shiny car and asks, “What kind of car ‘ya got there, sonny?” The young man replies, “A 1997 Ferrari GTO. It cost half a million dollars!” “That’s a lot of money,” says the old man. “Why does it cost so much?”
“Because this car can do up to 320 miles an hour!” states the young dude proudly. The moped driver asks, “Mind if I take a peek inside?” “No problem,” replies the owner. So the old man pokes his head in the window and looks around. Then, sitting back on his moped, the old man says, “That’s a pretty nice car, all right!”
Just then the light changes so the young dud decides to show the old man just what his car can do. He floors it and within 30 seconds the speedometer reads 320 mph. Suddenly he notices a dot in his rearview mirror. It seems to be getting closer! He slows down to see what it could be and suddenly, whoooooshh! Something whips by him, going much faster.
“What on earth could be going faster than my Ferrari?!” the young man asks himself. Then, ahead of him, he sees a dot coming toward him. Whoooosh!….it goes by again, heading the opposite direction! And it looked like the old man on the moped! “Couldn’t be,” thinks the guy. “How could a moped outrun a Ferrari?!” But again, he sees a dot in his rear view mirror!
Whoooosh! KaBbblaMMMM! It plows into the back of his car, demolishing the rear end. The young man jumps out, and it IS the old man!!
He runs up to the mangled old man and says, “Oh my God!! Is there anything I can do for you?” The old man whispers with his dying breath, “Unhook…..my suspenders….from your side-view mirror….”
