A Moroccan Taxi Tale - Humour

A Japanese tourist hailed a taxi in Marrakech and asked to be taken to the airport.

On the way, a car zoomed by and the tourist exclaimed, 'Oh! A Toyota - Made in Japan! Very fast!'

Not too long afterward, another car flew by the taxi. 'Oh! Nissan - Made in Japan! Very fast!'

Yet another car zipped by, and the tourist said, 'Oh! Mitsubishi - Made in Japan! Very fast!'

Mustapha, the taxi driver, who was 100% Moroccan, was starting to get a little annoyed that the Japanese made cars were passing his taxi, when yet another car passed the taxi as they were turning into the airport. 'Oh! Honda - Made in Japan! Very fast!'

Mustapha stopped the car, pointed to the meter, and said, 'That'll be 300 dirhams.'

'300 dirhams? It was short ride! Why so much?'

Mustapha smiled as he replied, 'Meter - Made in Morocco. Very fast.'

Hélas, nous sommes les plus forts pour l'arnaque! Les marrakchis en tête...
Lamentable et il n'y a pas de quoi s'en vanter.
