Mississippi humor....


His name was Bubba, he was from Mississippi ...
and he needed a loan, so... he walked into a bank in New York City
and asked for the loan officer.
He told the loan officer that he was going to Paris for an international
redneck festival for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000 and that
he was not a depositor of the bank.
The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security
for the loan, so the Redneck handed over the keys to a new Ferrari.
The car was parked on the street in front of the bank.
The Redneck produced the title and everything checked out.
The loan officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized
for having to charge 12% interest.

Later, the bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh
at the Redneck from the south for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral
for a $5,000 loan.
An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's private
underground garage and parked it.

Two weeks later, the Redneck returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest
of $23.07. The loan officer said, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your
business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a
little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out on Dunn & Bradstreet
and found that you are a Distinguished Alumni from Ole Miss University ,
a highly sophisticated investor and Multi-Millionaire with real estate and financial
interests all over the world. Your investments include a large number of wind
turbines around Sweetwater , Texas .
What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?"

The good 'ole boy replied,
"Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only
$23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?"
