A hip young entrepreneur just purchased a brand new Ferrari Modena. It’s one of the fastest, most expensive cars in the world making nearly 400 horsepower and costing $150,000. He takes it out for a spin and spots an old man on a moped while stopping for a traffic light.
The old man (looking about 70 years old) looks over at the sleek, shiny exotic car and asks, “What kind of car ya’ got there, sonny?” The young man replies, “A 2002 Ferrari 360 Modena. It costs more than most peoples’ house!”
“That’s a lot of money, “says the old man. “Why does it cost so much?” “Because this car can do up to 200 miles an hour and the chicks dig it!” boasts the young business man.
The old moped driver, impressed, 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!”
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 30 seconds the speedometer reads 160 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 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 the opposite direction! and it looked like the old man on the moped! “Couldn’t be,” thinks the guy. “How could a moped outrun my Ferrari?!” Yet again, he sees a dot in his rear view mirror! Whooooosh, Ka- bblaMMM! 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 guy and his wrecked moped and says, “Oh my god! Is there anything I can do for you?”
The old man whispers with his dying breath, “Unhook… my suspenders… f rom your side-view mirror…”
