    But on second thought given the success in politics of folks whose only real accomplishment is starring in a reality show, maybe it's time to move to NZ?

    Here is a blast from the past from several years ago and one of my favorites, for those of you that missed it, or are newer members. Make the picture in your head, and when you rethink about it, you will still start laughing again.

    The Old Man on a Moped:
    A doctor goes out and buys the best car on the market, a brand new Ferrari GTO It is also the most expensive car in the world, and it costs him $500,000. He takes it out for a spin and stops at a red light.
    An old man on a Moped, looking about 100 years old, pulls up next to him. The old man looks over at the sleek shiny car and asks; "What kind of car ya got there, sonny?"
    The doctor replies; "That it is a Ferrari GTO. And it cost half a million dollars!"
    "That's a lot of money"; says the old man. "Why does it cost so much?"
    "Because this car can do up to 320 miles an hour"; states the doctor proudly.
    The Moped driver asks; "Mind if I take a look inside?"
    "No problem," replies the doctor. So the old man pokes his head in through the driver's window and looks around. Then, sitting back on his Moped, the old man says; "That's a pretty nice car all right, but I'll stick with my Moped!"
    Just then the light changes, so the doctor decides to show the old man just what his car can do. He floors it, and within 30 seconds, the speedometer reads 160 mph. He suddenly notices a dot in his rear view mirror. It seems
    to be getting closer! He slows down to see what it could be and suddenly WHHHOOOOOOSSSSSHHH! Something whips by him going much faster! "What on earth could be going faster than my Ferrari?" the doctor asks himself.
    He floors the accelerator and takes the Ferrari up to 250 mph. Then, up ahead of him, he sees that it's the old man on the Moped! Amazed that the Moped could pass his Ferrari, he gives it more gas and passes the moped at 275 mph.
    WHOOOOOOOSHHHHH! He's feeling pretty good until he looks in his mirror and sees the old man gaining on him AGAIN! Astounded by the speed of this old guy, he floors the gas pedal and takes the Ferrari all the way up to 320 mph.
    Not ten seconds later, he sees the Moped bearing down on him again! The Ferrari is flat out, and there's nothing he can do! Then, the Moped plows into the back of his Ferrari, demolishing the rear end. The doctor stops and jumps out and unbelievably the old man is still alive.
    He runs up to the mangled old man and says; "Oh My Gosh! Is there anything I
    can do for you?"
    The old man whispers; "Yes, would you please unhook my suspenders from your rear view mirror.”

    I hope that you all enjoy this, have a great weekend, stay warm, and remember the chicken noodle soup.

    OMG - I am literally laughing my brains out. I tried to relay this to my wife verbally, but broke out in uncontrollable laughter repeatedly. Thanks for lightening my day!
