    Shaggy Snail Story

    A snail walked into a Jaguar dealer, and asked to see the fastest car that they had. After negotiating the price, the snail bought it, but on one condition- the snail wanted a large letter “S” painted on the roof, trunk, and doors.

    The snail finally came to pick up the car, and the dealer had to ask the snail, “You know, I’ve seen K-cars, and G-cars, and may other ones with letters, but none with the letter ‘S’. Why did you do it?”

    The snail replied, “all my life I’ve been laughed at for going so slow. Now that I have one of the fastest cars in the world, I want everyone to look at me and say”,

    “Hey, look at that ‘S’ car go!”

    Could be now I am going to have to set up TIVO to catch both movies. Jt you could be right. Also the brothers (Randolph and Mortimer) who become bankrupt in Trading Places show back up in Coming to America as bums on the side walk,which they get a hand out from Akeem before he enters the restaurant.
