The Mo-Ped vs. The Ferrari
A hip young man goes out and buys the best car
available: a 1997 Ferrari GTO. It is also most
expensive car in the world, and it costs him
He takes it out for a spin and stops for a
red light. An old man on a moped (both look-
ing 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,
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

Then, ahead of him, he sees a dot coming
toward him. Whoooooosh! 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! Whooooosh and KablaMMM! 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,
"Omigosh! Is there anything I can do for
The old man whispers in a raspy breath,
"Unhook...my suspenders...from your side
