The Old Man and the Moped

A hip young man goes out and buys the best
car available: a 1998
Turbo Best Car. It is the best and most expensive car in the world, and
it runs him $500,000. He takes it out for
a spin and, while doing so,
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 the sleek, shiny surface of the
car and asks, “What kind of car ya
got there, sonny?”

The young man replies “A 1998 Turbo Best
Car. They cost $500,000.”

“That’s a lot of money!”
says the old man, shocked. “Why does it cost
so much?”

“Because this car can do
up to 320 miles an hour!” states the cool dude

The moped driver asks, “Can I take a look

“Sure”, replies the owner.

So, the old man pokes his
head in the window and looks around. Leaning back on his moped, the
old man says, “That’s a pretty nice car, all right!”

Just then, the light changes, so the guy
decides to show the old man what
his car can do. He floors it, and within 30 seconds, the speedometer reads
mph. Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rear view mirror. It seems to be
getting closer!

He slows down to see what it could be and
whhoooossshhh! Something whips by him, going much

” What on earth could be going faster than
my Turbo Best Car? ” The young
man asks himself. Then, ahead of him, he sees a dot coming toward

Whoosh! It goes by again! And, it almost looked like the old man on
“Couldn’t be,” thinks the guy. “How could a moped outrun a Turbo
Best Car?”

Again, he sees a dot in his rear view

Whooosshka-blam! It plows into the back of
his car, demolishing the rear
end. The young man jumps out, and WOW, IT IS the old man! Of course,
the moped
and the old man are hurting for certain.

He runs up to the dying old man and says,
“You’re hurt bad!
Is there anything I can do for

The old man groans and replies “Yes. Unhook
my suspenders from your
side-view mirror!”
