A Calgary senior citizen drove his brand new red Corvette convertible out of the dealership.
Taking off down the road, he floored it to 130 km/h, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.
'Amazing,' he thought as he flew down the Trans-Canada towards Banff, pushing the pedal even more. Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a Royal Canadian Mounted Police patrol car behind him, blue and red lights flashing. He floored it to 160Km/h, then 180, then 200.
Suddenly he thought, 'What am I doing? I'm too old for this,' and pulled over to await the RCMP's arrival.
Pulling in behind him, the Officer 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 gentleman paused. Then said, 'Years ago, my wife ran off with an RCMP officer. I thought you were bringing her back.'
'Have a good day, Sir,' replied the Officer.
