SCRIPT

A Japanese car dealer went to America on a business trip.
On the last day, he hailed a taxi and told the driver to go to the airport.

On its way, a Toyota drove past the taxi.
He leaned out of the window and said, “Toyota, very fast! Made in Japan!”

After a while, a Honda drove past the taxi.
Again, he leaned out of the window and said, “Honda, very fast! Made in Japan!”

And later, a Nissan drove past the taxi.
For the third time, he leaned out of the window and yelled, “Nissan, very fast! Made in Japan!”

The driver was a little upset, but he kept quiet.
Finally, the taxi came to the airport.

D:   It's 300 dollars, sir.
J:    Wow, that's so expensive.
D:   Meter, very fast!
      Made in Japan!
