A man was reading the paper when an ad caught his eye. It loudly announced, “New Porsche, $500!”
The man thought it had to be a joke, but he said to himself, “Just in case, it’s worth a shot.”
So he called the number and then went to the home of the lady selling the sports car. She led him into the garage. Sure enough, there was an almost brand new Porsche.
“Wow!” the man said, “Can I take it for a test drive?”
“Sure,” answered the lady.
The man was surprised to learn that the car ran perfectly.
When he got back to the lady’s house, he asked her, “Why are you selling me this great Porsche for only $500?”
Then the lady replied with a laugh, “My husband just ran off with his secretary, and he told me, ‘You can have the house and the furniture, just sell my Porsche and send me the money.’”
