Today's #jokeoftheday is about a man who walked to the street, caught a taxi, and had an unlikely conversation with the cab driver that ended with a shocking twist.


A man was in a hurry to get to an appointment, so he left his home, walked to the street, and immediately caught a taxi. He got into the cab, and the driver turned to him and said, "Perfect timing. You're just like Frank."

Confused about what that meant, he asked the driver who he was talking about. The cab driver explained that he looked like a Frank Feldman who always did everything at the right time every time.

The driver compared it to him coming around just when he needed to get a cab, saying that coincidences like that happened to Frank Feldman all the time. The passenger responded, saying:

"There are always a few clouds over everybody."

The cab driver, however, disagreed, saying that Frank Feldman had no clouds over him. He described Frank as a fantastic athlete, an extraordinary singer who sang like an opera baritone, played the piano like a pro, and danced like a Broadway star.

The passenger was impressed with the accolades and described Feldman as something special, but the cab driver even had more impressive tales up his sleeves. The driver mentioned that Frank was super brilliant. 


He explained that Frank had a memory of a computer and remembered everybody's birthday. He knew all about wine, continental dishes and can fix any electrical appliance. The driver continued:

"He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Frank never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat a woman." 


The passenger was blown away by Frank's abilities and asked the driver how he managed to meet such a fellow. The driver smiled sheepishly and said, "well... I never actually met Frank. He died, and I married his bloody widow."

Another joke tells the story of a man who hailed a cab and told the driver to take him to the airport. The journey was going great until the passenger tapped the driver to ask him a question. The driver got scared and lost control.


He almost hit a truck but managed to get control and was able to stop a few meters away from a coffee shop. The pair was quiet for a while before the passenger said, "I'm so sorry. I didn't realize a tiny tap like that would scare you so much."

The driver smiled and replied, "It's not your fault. Today is my first day as a taxi driver. I've been driving a funeral van for the past 35 years." If you enjoyed these jokes, click here to read more.
