The Ferrari & The Moped
A "cool" young man goes out and buys the best car available: a
2000 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 (both looking about 90 years old) pulls up next to him.
