Mute

Once upon a time there were two deaf mutes standing on a street corner talking to each other with sign language.

Mute #1 (SIGN) “What would you like to do?”
Mute #2 (SIGN) “I don’t know, what about you?”
Mute #1 (SIGN) “Let’s get my car, find some girls, drive to a dark space and have some fun.”
Mute #2 (SIGN) “Good idea.”

So they get his car, find some girls, drive to a dark spot and are having a ball when the guy in the back seat taps the guy in the front seat on the shoulder…

Front Seat Mute (SIGN) “What?”
Back Seat Mute (SIGN) “Have you got any protection?”
Front Seat Mute (SIGN) “No. Don’t you?”
Back Seat Mute (SIGN) “No. We had better go to a drug store and get some.”

They procede to drive to a drug store and the man in the back seat gets out and goes inside. In two minutes he is back out-side and taps on the car window.

Inside Mute (SIGN) “What?”
Outside Mute (SIGN) “I’ve got a problem.”
Inside Mute (SIGN) “What?”
Outside Mute (SIGN) “I can’t make the druggist understand what I want.”

Inside Mute (SIGN) “I know What to do.”
Outside Mute (SIGN) “What?”
Inside Mute (SIGN) “Go back inside. Put five dollars on the counter. Put your pecker on the counter. He’ll know what you want.”
Outside Mute (SIGN) “Good idea.”

The man goes back into the drug store and two minutes later he’s back at the car window.

Inside Mute (SIGN) “Well?”
Outside Mute (SIGN) “It didn’t work.”
Inside Mute (SIGN) “What do you mean?”
Outside Mute (SIGN) “I did what you told me to do. I went inside. I put 5 dollars on the counter. I put my pecker on the counter.
He put his on the counter.
It was bigger than mine.
He took my 5 dollars.”

Now You Know

The four Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram, and Max, invented and developed the first automobile air-conditioner. On July 17, 1946, the temperature in Detroit was 97 degrees.

The four brothers walked into Henry Ford’s office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter. Henry was curious and invited them into his office. They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car.

They persuaded him to get into the car, which was about 130 degrees, turned on the air conditioner, and cooled the car off immediately.

Henry got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the patent.

The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million, but they wanted the recognition by having a label, ‘The Goldberg Air-Conditioner,’ on the dashboard of each car in which it was installed.

Now Henry Ford was more than just a little anti-Semitic, and there was no way he was going to put the Goldberg’s name on two million Fords. They haggled back and forth for about two hours and finally agreed on $4 million and that just their first names would be shown.

And so to this day, all Ford air conditioners show: Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max on the controls. So, now you know…
