Why were you speeding?



There was a senior citizen who bought a brand new Mercedes Convertible SLK.
He took off down the road, flooring it up to 80 mph and enjoying the wind
blowing through what little hair he had left on his head.

"This is great," he thought and floored it some more.

Then he looked in his rear view mirror.
There was a highway patrol Trooper behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring.

"I can get away from him with no problem," thought the man as he floored it some more and flew down the road at over 100 mph.

Then he thought, "What am I doing? I'm too old for this kind of thing" and pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the state trooper to catch up with him.
The trooper pulled behind the Mercedes and walked up to the man. "Sir," he said, looking at his watch "My shift ends in 30 minutes and today is Friday the 13th. If you can give me one good reason why you were speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."

The man looked back at the trooper and said, "Years ago my wife ran off
with a state trooper, and I thought you were bringing her back."


The state trooper replied, "Have a nice day."

I've been surprised at the lack of comment on the John Howard and still syphoning one,I think it's excellent.

Re the John Howard joke, I think a fair few people reaaly do like his leadership. They probably would not admit it. A few letters in the paper lately preferring him to Peter Costello.
John had heard the joke before with someone else the butt of it.
