    A senior citizen was driving his brand new Corvette convertible out
    Of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80
    mph, Enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.

    Amazing,' he thought as he flew down I-45, pushing the pedal even
    More. Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a State Trooper behind
    Him, lights flashing and siren blaring.

    He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. 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 walked up to the Corvette, looked
    At his watch and said, 'Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is
    Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never
    Heard before, I'll let you go.'

    The old gentleman paused and then said, 'Years ago, my wife ran off
    With a State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.'

    'Have a good day, sir,' replied the trooper.
