Joe:  “Hey, Andy, look at all those tire burns on the road, what gives?”

Andy: “Those burns were put down because screwball drivers barged out of driveways​ in front of high-speed traffic.”

Joe: “Say’a just before we left the city, Andy, we made a right turn– you had me make some maneuvers that looked kind of screwy to me, how about that?”

Andy: “Well, I was trying to avoid what is known as the squeeze plate, Joe.”

Andy: “For my money, yellow and red are the same color.  They both mean stop. Regardless how you mix red and yellow, Joe, they never make green.”

Andy: “S.T.O.P. spells ‘stop,’ not slow.”
