TURNAROUND IS FAIR PLAY

I pulled into a gas station the other day to fill up. I saw this fellow just standing there, so I went over to see if he needed some assistance. He just kept mumbling something about a trade. At first, I thought he was enamored with he new staff car which was gathering more than a few stares:He kept saying , "trade?" I told him the car was still in a trial period, so technically, it wasn't mine to trade. "No," he grumbled. "Not car, I trade you pumpkin for Manhattan." After considerable thought, I agreed. He has taken possession of Manhattan and I have a lovely pumpkin that will make several pies. I think I got the better of the deal.

  21. So when you traded for Manhattan, was it a Kaiser Manhattan, and what does the Yugo think of this, pumpkin aside? The inquiring mind of «Louis la Vache» wants to know...
