Happy Halloween


This happened near Delhi, and even though it sounds like something
out of the X Files or from Alfred Hitchcock. Presently… it’s real ! This
guy drives from Delhi to Greater Noida and decides to take the new
expressway as he wants to see the scenery. The inevitable happens and when
he reaches the ghats his car breaks down and he’s stranded miles from
nowhere. Having no choice he starts walking on the side of the road, hoping
to get a lift to the nearest human habitation. It’s dark and raining and
pretty soon he’s wet and shivering. The night rolls on and no car goes by,
the monsoon rains are so strong he can hardly see a few feet ahead of him.
Suddenly he sees a car coming towards him. It slows and then stops next to
him. Without thinking the guy opens the car’s door and jumps in. Seated in
the back, he leans forward to thank the person who had saved him when he
realizes there is nobody behind the wheel !!! Even though there’s no one in
the front seat and no sound of any engine, the car starts moving slowly.The
guy looks at the road ahead and sees a curve coming. Scared almost to death
he starts to pray, begging the Lord for his life. He hasn’t come out of
shock, when just before he hits the curve, a hand appears through the window
and moves the wheel! The car makes the curve safely and continues on the
road to the next bend. The guy, now paralyzed in terror, watches how the
hand appears every time they are before a curve and moves the steering wheel
just enough to get the car around each bend. Finally, the guy sees lights
ahead. Gathering his courage he wrenches open the door of the silent, slowly
moving car, scrambles out and runs as hard as he can towards the lights.
It’s a small town. Wet and in shock goes to a roadside dhabba, which is
open, and asks for a drink. They find some hooch and give him a shot. And he
starts telling whoever is in the dhabba about the horrible experience he’s
just been through. A silence envelops everybody when they realize the guy
isn’t drunk, and is really frightened – he’s crying and shaking. So they
give him more hooch and talk about what they should do, whether to call the
police or find a priest, or what. But just then two guys (Santa & Banta)
walk into the dhabba. One says to the other “Look, Banta – that’s the guy
who got in our car when we were pushing it.” 😛

One thought on “Happy Halloween”

  1. Why is Halloween better than Sex?
    1. You're guaranteed to get a little something in the sack.
    2. The uglier you are, the easier it is to get some.
    3. It doesn't matter if the kids hear you moaning and groaning.
    4. Less guilt the morning after.
    5. It doesn't matter if they fantasize you're somebody else, because
    you are.
    6. Forty years from now, you'll still enjoy candy.
    7. If you don't get what you want, you can always go next door.
    8. If you get tired, you can wait 10 minutes and go again.
    9. You don't have to compliment the person who gives you some.
    10. You can do the whole neighborhood!!
