A couple had been debating buying a new vehicle for weeks. He was looking for a tricked out pick-up truck. She wanted a fast little sports car to zip through traffic around town. But everything she liked was way out of their price range.
"Look," she said, "I want something that goes from 0 to 100 in just a few seconds. Nothing else will do. Christmas is coming so surprise me."
On Christmas Day he gave her a bathroom scale.
Nobody has seen or heard from him since.
