Joke For Today

I receive an email newsletter from Superior Threads and in it was this joke, which I thought should be passed along! If you haven’t ever been to their website, check it out because they have lots of information about thread for home and longarm sewing machines.

Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a highway patrolman sees a car puttering along at 22 MPH. He thinks to himself, ‘this driver is just as dangerous as a speeder,’ so he turns on his lights and stops the car. Approaching the car, he notices that there are five old ladies, two in the front seat and three in the back, wide eyed and white as ghosts.  The driver, obviously confused, says to him, “Officer, I don’t understand. I was doing exactly the speed limit. What seems to be the problem?”  “Ma’am,” the officer replies, “you weren’t speeding but you should know that driving much slower than the speed limit can also be a danger to other drivers.”  “Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly. Twenty-two miles an hour,” the old woman said a bit proudly.  The State Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle, explained to her that 22 was the highway route number, not the speed limit.  A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing out her error.  “But before I let you go Ma’am, I have to ask, ‘Is everyone in this car OK?’ These women seem awfully shaken up and they haven’t muttered a single word this whole time.”  The driver responded, “Oh, they’ll be all right in a minute. We just got off Route 110.”

Happy quilting!
