When Cardboard Men Come In Handy

Standard

A car gets a flat on the interstate one day. The blonde driver eases it over onto the shoulder of the road, carefully steps out of the car and opens the trunk.

She takes out two cardboard men, unfolds them and stands them at the rear of the vehicle facing oncoming traffic. The lifelike cardboard men are in trench coats exposing their nude bodies and private parts to approaching drivers.

Not surprisingly, the traffic becomes snarled and backed up.

It isn’t very long before a police car arrives. The officer, clearly enraged, approaches the blonde of the disabled vehicle yelling, ‘What’s going on here?’

‘My car broke down, officer’ says the woman calmly.

‘Well, what are these obscene cardboard pictures doing here by the road?’ he asks.

‘Helllooooooo!!!!’ says the blonde. ‘Those are my emergency flashers!’
