"Amazing," he thought as he flew up the motorway towards Taunton, pushing the accelerator pedal even more.
Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a traffic Panda, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, "What am I doing? I'm too old for this!" and pulled over to await the policeman's
Pulling in behind him, the cop got out of his vehicle and walked up to the Porsche . He looked at his watch, then said, "Sir, This is a first for me, someone of your age doing over 110 - what the hell are you up to? Look, tell you what, my shift ends in 30 minutes and today is Friday and I have a day off tomorrow and want to get away. If you can give me a new reason for speeding--a reason I've never before heard-- I'll let you go."
The old gentleman paused then said: "Five years ago, my wife ran off with one of you Exeter traffic cops. I thought you were bringing her back."
"Have a good evening, Sir," replied the traffic cop.
