This is an old one but a good one about an elderly man on a mobility scooter and a Ferrari.
An elderly man who was riding on a mobility scooter, looking about 90 years old if not even older, pulled up next to a doctor at a street light.
The old man looked over at the sleek shiny car that the doctor was driving and asked, “What kind of car ya got there, sonny?”
The doctor replied, “It’s a Ferrari, cost me half a million dollars!”
“That’s a lot of money”, the old man said. “Why does it cost so much?”
“Because this car can do up to 220 miles an hour!” the doctor stated proudly.
The elderly man asked the doctor, “Mind if I take a look inside?”
“No problem”, the doctor replied.
So, the old man poked his head in the window and looked around at all the instruments and dials and lights on the dashboard, then, sitting back on his mobility scooter, the old man said, “That’s a pretty nice car, all right, but I’ll stick with my mobility scooter”.
Just then, the lights changed, so the doctor decided to show the old man just what his half a million dollars worh of Ferrari could do. He floored it, did a wheel spin and within 30 seconds the speedometer was reading 150 mph.
Suddenly, he noticed a dot in his rear view mirror. It seemed to be getting closer !
He slowed down to see what it could be and suddenly WHOOOOSSSHHH! Something whipped by him going much faster than even he was!
“What on earth could be going faster than my Ferrari?” the doctor asked himself.
He presseed harder on the accelerator and took the Ferrari up to 180 mph.
Then, up ahead of him, to his utter amazement, he saw that it was the old man on the mobility scooter and it was practically flying!
Amazed that the mobility scooter could pass his Ferrari, he gave it more gas and passed the mobility scooter at 200 mph.
He was feeling pretty good until he looked in his mirror and again he could see the old man gaining on him AGAIN!
Astounded by the speed of this old guy, he floored the gas pedal and took the Ferrari all the way up to 220 mph.
Not ten seconds later, he could see the mobility scooter bearing down on him again!
The Ferrari was going literally flat out, the engine was practically screaming and there was nothing he could do!
Suddenly, the mobility scooter plowed into the back of his Ferrari, demolishing the rear end.
The doctor stopped and jumped out and unbelievably the old man was still alive.
He ran up to the old guy, who was looking rather battered and in shock and said, “I’m a doctor. Are you ok? Is there anything I can do for you?”
The old man beckoned to the doctor to come closer and whispered in his ear, “Would you be so kind as to unhook my suspenders from your side view mirror!”
