Ted’s Joke – Always look on the brighter side of life

Then there was the young bloke who was your genuine, eternal optimist.  No matter what happened, he always looked on the bright side of life, and no matter what went wrong you could never stir him up.

One fine, sunny day he was driving along whistling a happy tune when he spotted a gorgeous young girl walking along beside the road.

The young bloke stopped, and she asked him for a lift to the nearest town.

“Of course,” he said.  “Hop in”.

So she got in the car and off they went.

As they drove along, the bloke looked her over, noticing the short skirt, the low-cut top, the shapely legs and all the other bits and pieces.  All in the right places and very nice, too.

Well, being an optimist, he naturally thought it over for a while. And not being a believer in mucking about, he put it to her straight.  “How about it, love?” he asked

The girl thought it over for a while.

“Oh, all right,” she said eventually, “but it’ll cost you.”

“How much ?” the young bloke asked.

“Fifty bucks,” the girl replied.

“You’re on,” said the young bloke, passing over a $50 note and pulling off the road into a patch of scrub.

They both got out of the car, the young bloke pulling down his strides ready for action.

But the girl turned around, hopped in the car and drove off.

“Ah, well,” said the young bloke, always the optimist.  “It could have been worse.  The car was stolen, the $50 note was a fake….and I was busting to go to the loo, anyway.”
