A hip young man goes out and buys himself an expensive car: A Ferrari 599 GTO.
It costs him almost $500,000.
He takes it out for a spin and stops for a red light.
An old man on a moped (both looking about 75 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, “It’s a Ferrari 599 GTO. It cost nearly half a million dollars!”
“That’s a lot of money,” says the old man. “Why does it cost so much?”
“Because this car is a limited edition model!” the young guy says proudly.
The moped driver asks, “Mind if I take a look 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, but I’ll stick with my Moped!”
Just then the light changes so the guy decides to show the old man just what his car can do.
He floors it, and within 20 seconds, the speedometer reads 160 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 – whhhoooossshhh!
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. Whoooooosh! It goes by again, heading in the opposite direction.
It looked like the old man on the moped! “Couldn’t be,” thinks the guy.
“How can a moped outrun a Ferrari!?”
But again, he sees a dot in his rearview mirror! Whoosh, Ka- blaMMM!
It plows into the back of his car, demolishing the rear end.
The young man jumps out, and it turns out to be the old man on the moped after all!
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:
“Please, please… unhook…my suspenders… from your side-view mirror…”
