A man was driving a big car at fast speed along a wide road when a very small car appeared alongside, as if trying to pass him. The driver of the big car wouldn't let a small car pass him, not even a new one. He went faster still — sixty — sixty-five miles an hour—but still the small car kept beside him. Suddenly the driver of the small car opened his window and shouted. “Do you know anything about these cars?”
“Why?” asked the other driver, “I can't shift the thing into top gear,” was the reply.
