Fred’s Funnies
A Florida senior citizen drove a car off the dealership floor.  The elderly man observed a Florida State Trooper and the man sped up!  After a heated car chase the trooper managed to get the man to pull over.  The trooper said to the man: “If you can give me a good reason for speeding I’ll let you off easy.”  What do you think the man's response was?
