Time for me to drive off into the sunset, which means it’s time for jokes about driving:
A Floridian truck driver was looking for a long distance driving job across the country. He got offered a job driving a load of bowling balls to Casper, Wyoming. He wasn’t too keen on this, but he wanted the money and so took the load. A while along the highway he sees two Jehovah Witnesses on bikes in the middle of nowhere. So he stopped his rig and asks if they would like a lift. They say OK. The truck driver says, “All right, hop in, but you’ll have to ride in the back.”
A 100 miles down the road he stopped at a truck stop, which involved a load inspection by the local agricultural authorities. The driver was asked where he is off to and he replied “Casper.” The cops went round the back, opened the doors, slammed them shut quickly and rushed around desperately to the driver saying, “For crying out loud get to Casper quickly! And don’t stop! Two of your eggs have already hatched, and one of them has already stolen a bike.”
An Elko patrol officer pulled over Enid for speeding. Enid was a 65-year-old lady from out of state. The officer asked to see her license. ‘Don’t have one’ Enid said. ‘Can I please see the Vehicle registration’ the officer asked firmly but politely. ‘Nope’ snapped Enid. In that case I will have to take you into the Police station and charge you. When they arrived the arresting officer said, to the duty sergeant. This lady has no license and no vehicle registration. ‘Sure I do’ said Enid sweetly. ‘This officer has got in for me, the next thing is he will be saying that I was going 27 MPH in a 25 MPH zone.’
A Basque man went to the DOT to apply for a driver’s license. First, of course, he had to take an eye sight test. The clerk showed him a card with the letters. On the bottom row were these letters: Y-N-C-H-A-U-S-T-Y. ‘Can you read this?’ the clerk asked. ‘Read it?’ the Basque guy replied – ‘I know the fellow.’
All this talk of driving and preparation for my drive to Casper reminded me of an amusing incident. While driving down a highway in the U.P. I approached a van which had on the back “Caution, this van is being driven by a blind man”. As I passed this vehicle the name on the side indicated that it was a delivery van for installing window treatments including Venetian Blinds. That amused me.
There will be no posts next week while I join my family on a camping trip. Keep calm and carry on.
