Smart Mercedes


A guy went to his dealer and picked up one of those new Mercedes SUVs. He turned on the radio and nothing happened. Furious, he told his sales consultant that: "When I buy a $50,000car, I expect the *&#@ radio to work."

The salesperson explained to him that the radio had been preprogrammed to his voice and all he had to do was tell the radio what he wanted to hear. Pretty neat stuff.

He got back into the car and said, "Country music," and Willie Nelson started singing. "Rock and roll!" he exclaimed, and immediately Elvis started crooning. "Easy listening," he remarked, and all at once it sounded like he was in an elevator.

Later that day, he was relaxed and driving up Route 128 outside Boston, listening to smooth sounds. Then an SUV a typical Boston driver almost ran him off the road.

"Moron!" he screamed.

The radio immediately blurted out, "This is Click and Clack, and you're listening to National Public Radio!"

In all seriousness, you guys are the best. I try never to miss your show...I restore old cars as a hobby and love to try and guess the repairs on the spot.

Cheers, and hope you enjoy!
