Bob’s wife decided to go out and buy a new car.
The salesman at the dealership eyed her up, pointed at a convertible sports car and said, “I recommend this one”.
She asked him why and the salesman replied, “Because this car not only looks stylish and will have everyone’s heads turning as you go past, it has hydraulic backspin brakes”.
“What on earth are those?” Bob’s wife asked.
“Get in and I¹ll show you”, the salesman said.
So they both got into the car and the salesman drove it 100 miles an hour towards a brick wall. When he was just 100 feet away from the wall, he jammed on the brakes and they stopped a mere foot from the wall.
The salesman said to her, “Do you smell that?”
She took a sniff and said, “Uh-huh”.
The salesman said proudly, “That¹s hydraulic backspin brakes for you”.
So, that night when Bob got home from the office, his wife said, “Honey, I bought a car today”.
Bob asked her, “How did you decide which kind to buy?”
She replied, “I bought one with hydraulic backspin brakes. Get in and I¹ll show you”.
So, they got in the car and she drove it 100 miles an hour toward the same brick wall.
When they were just 100 feet away from the wall, she jammed on the brakes and they stopped merely one foot from the wall.
She looked over at her husband and asked him, “Do you smell that?”
Bob, shaking, replied, “I ought to! I¹m sitting in it!”
