Na English gentleman walked into the showroom of a Rolls Royce dealer. The salesman showed him the latest model and explained all the features the car could perform. The gentleman wrote a check of 100.000 pounds and left the check on the table. Then the gentleman saw a small hole in the engine section and asked the salesman what the hole was for. The salesman replied that this hole was where you insert that crank-shaft (manivela) in case the engine couldn’t get started. The gentleman looked at the salesman in amazement, picked up the check and walked out of the door. The salesman chased after him. When he was face to face with the gentleman, he ripped off the gentleman’s shirt, and asked: “Sir, do you know what your nipples are for?” The gentleman replied: “I don’t know. I never thought of it”. The salesman said: “Sir, God created you those nipples in case you will be pregnant with a baby.” The gentleman thought for a moment and gave the check back to the salesman.
