True story ...
A farmer was involved in a nasty accident when turning right into his field while someone was overtaking.
"Did you indicate?" asked the local bobby.
"Why?" replied the farmer. "I always turn right there."
Contrary to popular belief, Audi drivers don't actually own all the road; only the bit they currently want to be on. Have some circular overlappinh stars.
The "Old joke alert" tag is a bit harsh. I think the old joke used BMW instead of Audi. Replacing BMW with Audi freshens this up and gives it a whole new lease of life.
I might try something similar with a range of jokes about why a turkey crossed the road.
Also, in the interests of factual accuracy in comedy, I think it's important to note that Audi would only conduct a recall if they found a dangerous fault. Indicator stalks seizing up through not being used is hardly a manufacturing fault is it?
Good point Spartacus. That kind of inaccuracy undermines the whole joke for me.
I'm writing my letter of complaint to Newsthump now...
About the BMW jokes, to save me searching, has anyone mentioned a recall concerning accelerator pedals that stick to the floor? For some strange reason, it mostly affects black* ones.
I saw one accelerate into a special black BMW parking space on double yellow lines the other day. I was stepping into the road so as to see if it was clear to cross and the prat missed me by inches, and only because I was quick to stop.
( * I'm not a racist but it's true.)
"... the prat missed me by inches" Are you sugesting he was a prat because he missed? He might not have been aimng at you.
I want to know - why did the turkey cross the road?
By the way, do you know why the chicken crossed half-way across the road? (You won't like the answer.)
From my point of view, he was a prat because he accelerated onto a bit of tarmac occupied by a pedestrian.
As for you, Titus, God forbid you should ever have a black BMW.
Thanks! I despise both.
Ha ha, amongst the BMWs I've owned, there was a black one. Currently I have an Audi. A black one.
Reminds me of the old joke.
I must look really sexy in my new Black Audi.
Loads of other motorists have signalled that they plan on having a wank later.
