A snail buys a fast new car

There was once a snail who was sick and tired of his reputation for being so slow. He decided to get some fast wheels to make up the difference. After shopping around a while, he decided that the Datsun 240-Z was the car to get. So the snail goes to the nearest Datsun dealer and says he wants to buy the 240-Z, but he wants it repainted "240-S". The dealer asks, "Why 'S'?"The snail replies, "'S' stands for snail. I want everybody who sees me roaring past to know who's driving."Well, the dealer doesn't want to lose the unique opportunity to sell a car to a snail, so he agrees to have the car repainted for a small fee.The snail gets his new car and spent the rest of his days roaring happily down the highway at top speed. And whenever anyone would see him zooming by, they'd say "Wow! Look at that S-car go!"

Only in America...


  1. That's very clever - love that joke! Mr B tells me that in fact there is a car called an "S Cargo" which is a little van shaped like a snail (very rounded), made by Nissan. How about that! He saw a few in NZ but hasn't seen any here yet. Missed you at the Cross Country tonight. Did Erin go last night?

  2. Brought a chuckle to this tired face...im off to bed.
