Cobra Humor

Two seperate items.

In 1988 Enzo Ferrari, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a small Ferrari flag in the window.

"This house is yours for eternity, Enzo," said God. "This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here." Enzo felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house. On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a huge mansion painted white with blue trim, a carbon fiber sidewalk, a 50 foot tall flagpole with an enormous Shelby flag, and in every window, a Shelby logo sign of every imaginable type.

Enzo looked at God and said "God, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I was a good manufacturer, my cars won LeMans and F1 championships. Why will Carroll Shelby get a better house than me?"

God chuckled, and said "Enzo, that's not Carroll's house, it's mine!"

The Night Before A Cobra Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas and in the garage, There wasn't a trace of a Chevy or a Dodge.

The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit, So I figured I'd mess with the Snake for a bit.

I popped the release and I lifted the hood, When a deep voice behind me said "looks pretty good."

Well, as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick, And there, by the work bench, stood good ole Saint Nick!

We stood there a bit, not too sure what to say, Then he said "don't suppose that you'd trade for my sleigh?

I said "no way, Santa" and started to grin, "But if you've got the time we could go for a spin!"

His round little mouth, all tied up like a bow, Turned into a smile and he said "hey! let's go!!"

So as not to disturb all the neighbors' retreat, We pushed the Snake quietly into the street,

Then, taking our places to drift down the hill, I turned on the key and I let the clutch spill.

The sound that erupted took him by surprise, But he liked it a lot, by the look in his eyes.

With Goodyear's a' crying and side pipes aglow, We headed on out where the hot rodders go.

And Santa's grin widened, approaching his ears, With every shift up as I went through the gears.

Then he yelled "can't recall when I've felt so alive!" So I backed off the gas and said "you wanna drive?"

Ole Santa was stunned when I gave him the keys, When he walked past the headlights he shook at the knees!

Then the motor exploded
With the side exhaust sound! Santa let out the clutch,
the Cobra shook the ground!

He power shifted into second, and again into third! I sat there just watching, at a loss for a word,

Then I heard him exclaim as we blasted from sight, "Merry Christmas to all, it's a hell of a night!!!"

Merry Christmas!

Really, on a Cobra?
"I popped the release and I lifted the hood"

He could just as easily have said:
"I turned the handles and popped the hood"
