One afternoon, a man drives down a highway to visit a nearby lake and relax.
On his way to the lake, he sees a strange guy dressed from head to toe in red, who is standing on the side of the highway, gesturing for him to stop.
The man pulls over to the side of the highway, rolls down the window and says to the guy, “How can I help you?”
The guy says, “I am the red jerk of the highway. Have you got something to eat?”
With a smile on his face, the man hands a sandwich to the guy in red and drives away.
Not even five minutes later, he comes across another guy. This guy is dressed fully in yellow, and similarly he is standing on the side of the highway and waving for him to stop.
A bit irritated now, the man pulls over and stops, cranks down the window, and says, “What can I do for you?”
The strange looking guy says, “I am the yellow jerk of the highway. Have you got something to drink?”
Hardly managing to smile this time, the man hands the guy a can of Coke, floors the accelerator pedal. and takes off again.
In order to make it to the lakeside before sunset, he decides that he needs to go faster and not to stop no matter what.
To his frustration, he sees another guy on the side of the road, this one dressed in blue and signaling for him to stop.
Reluctantly, the man decides to stop one last time, rolls down his window, and yells, “Let me guess. You’re the blue jerk of the highway, and just what the hell do you wanna have?”
The guy in blue says, “Driver’s license and registration, please.”
