Laughter Spot : The one about a middle aged guy who bought a Mercedes 300 SL convertible

There was a middle aged guy who bought a Mercedes 300 SL convertible

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.

He looked in his rear view mirror and there was a police car behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blasting.

“I can get away from him with no problem” thought the man and 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 traffic cops to catch up with him.

The officer pulled in behind the Mercedes and the officer 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 a reason why you were speeding that I’ve never heard before, I’ll let you go”.

The man looked back at the policeman and said, “last week my wife ran off with a traffic cop, and I thought you were bringing her back!”

The policeman said, “Have a nice day!”
