A man stalled his car on the road and found his starter unable
to turn the motor over. A lady came along with her car, and he
hailed her, asking her to give him a push. He said to her, 'My
car has an automatic transmission, so you will have to get up to 35
miles an hour'. He sat there waiting for her to push him with
her car and nothing happened. He looked around and there she was
coming at him at a speed of 35 miles an hour.
A woman driver became stuck with her car on an icy street, and
got out and proceeded to throw sand under the front wheels. A

simp, why should I put it under the rear wheels? It's the front
ones that won't turn.'

farmer. 'Ever been crazy?' Asked the patient.
'Nope' was the answer. The patient said 'You'd just
ought to try it sometime, it beats farming all to pieces.'
A man had a flat tire next to a mental institution. While he was
putting on the spare, a patient watched him. He could not find the
nuts to hold the wheel on the hub. He must have mis-laid them, and
didn't know what he was going to do. The patient said:
'I'll tell you what to do, take one off each of the other
wheels, that will get you to a service station where you can get
some more'. The man said 'That's a very good idea,
especially good for a mental patient.' The patient said
'Just remember that I'm in here because I'm crazy, not
