Some people reach a certain age in their life when they begin to show signs of going through a middle life crisis, like this joke about a man who bought a new car and tried to run away from the police.


Life is too short to live it with a sad face, that’s why we brought this joke to you. Take one minute of your time and enjoy this short story that we are sure is going to make you laugh out loud.

A man in his mid-forties bought a new BMW and was out on the interstate for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he decided to see what the engine had.


As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him. “There’s no way they can catch a BMW,” he thought to himself and opened her up further.


The needle hit 90, then 100, and finally reality hit him and he knew he shouldn’t run from the police, so he slowed down and pulled over.


The cop came up to him, took his license without a word and examined it and the car. “It’s been a long day, this is the end of my shift and it’s Friday the 13th. I don’t feel like more paperwork, so if you can give me an excuse for your driving that I haven’t heard before, you can go.”


The guy thinks for a second and says: “Last week my wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back.” “Have a nice weekend,” laughed the officer, and walked away.

What a clever way to avoid a ticket to the courtroom! We hope you had a good time and don´t forget to share this with your friends and family. Check out our other jokes in the entertainment section.
