Laugh a little
Out for a Drive
Rifka and Abe had just left the Thrift Shop and Rifka was driving them home in their 15-year-old clunker. To save gas, they had just turned off the main road to take a shortcut through a ritzy subdivision and were moving down hill when their brakes fail.
Rifka is pressing the brake pedal as hard as she can and she's also trying to tear the hand brake out by the roots, but to no avail. The car continues to gather speed.
"Oy Vay," she wails, "Abe, what should I do, what should I do?"
"For heaven's sake," Abe screams. "Hit something cheap!"
