A Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of
the dealership. Taking off down the road, he pushed it to 80 mph, enjoying
the wind blowing through his hair.
“Amazing,” he thought as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal even more.
Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a Florida State Trooper, blue
lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then
Suddenly he thought, “What am I doing? I’m too old for this!” and pulled
over to await the trooper’s arrival.
Pulling in behind him, the trooper got out of his vehicle and walked up to
the Corvette. He looked at his watch, then said, “Sir, my shift ends in 30
minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a new reason for speeding — a
reason I’ve never before heard — I’ll let this pass.”
The old gentleman paused, then said: “Three years ago, my wife ran off with
a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.”
The Trooper said: “Have a nice day.”
