Angry Damn women drivers...

This morning on the 401, I looked over to my left and there was a woman in a brand new Cadillac, doing 65 mph with her face up next to her rear view mirror, putting on her eyeliner!

I looked away for a couple seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane, still working on that makeup.

Now, as a man, I don't scare easily.

But she scared me so much that I dropped my electric shaver, which knocked the donut out of my other hand.

In all the confusion of trying to straighten out the car using my knees against the steering wheel, it knocked my cell phone away from my ear which fell into the coffee between my legs, splashed, and burned Big Jim and the Twins, ruined the damn phone, soaked my pants, and disconnected an important call.

Damn women drivers.

Default New Ferrari Pit Crew

The announcement followed Ferrari's decision last month to take advantage of the NZ government's "work for the dole scheme" and to hire unemployed Maori youths.

The decision to hire them was bought on by a recent television documentary on how Maori youths were able to remove a set of car wheels in less than 6 seconds without proper equipment, where as Ferrari"s pit crew can only do it in 8 seconds with the aid of millions of dollars of high tech gear.

This was thought to be an excellent yet bold move by Ferrari would have a decided advantage over every other F1 team. However Ferrari got more than they bargained for on Sunday when during the first pit stop the Maori crew changed all 4 tyres in under 6 seconds, but within 12 seconds they had re-sprayed, re-badged and sold the car over to the McLaren team for 10 dozen Lion Red, and HQ Holden and a quick look at David Coulthard's girlfriend in the shower.

Talking

A Scotsman phones a dentist to inquire about the cost for a tooth extraction.
"85 for an extraction, sir," the dentist replied.
"85!!! Huv ye no' got anythin' cheaper?"
"That's the normal charge," said the dentist.
"Whit aboot if ye didnae use any anaesthetic?"
"That's unusual, sir, but I could do it and knock 15 off."
"Whit aboot if ye used one of your dentist trainees and still without an anaesthetic?"
"I can't guarantee their professionalism and it'll be painful. But the price could drop to 40."
"How aboot if ye make it a trainin' session, ave yer student do the extraction, with the other students watchin' and learnin'?"
"It'll be good for the students", mulled the dentist. "I'll charge you 5, but it's going to be very traumatic."
"Och, now yer talkin' laddie! It's a deal," said the Scotsman. "Can ye confirm an appointment for the wife on next Tuesday then?"
