Day 241 / 365

Five Guys in an Audi Quattro arrive at the border.  The Customs agent stops them and says, “It’s illegal to put 5 people in a Quattro.”  “What do you mean it’s illegal?” ask the driver.  “Quattro means four,” replies the Customs agent.  “Quattro is just the name of the automobile,” the driver retort disbelievingly. “Look at the papers: this car is designed to carry 5 persons.” “You can’t pull that one on me,” replies the Customs agent. “Quattro means four. You have five people in your car and you are therefore breaking the law.”  The driver replies angrily, “You idiot! Call your supervisor over,  I want to speak to someone with more intelligence!”  “Sorry,” responds the Customs agent, “he can’t come. He’s busy with 2 guys in a Fiat Uno.”

 

Interesting Fact:  August Horch founded his first car company, A. Horch & Cie. in 1899. But just 10 years later, Horch wasn’t seeing eye-to-eye with his Chief Financial officer and left his own company to start August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH. Unfortunately, Horch soon learned the Horch name belonged to his former company when he was notified of a copyright infringement. In response, Horch changed the new company’s name to the latin translation of his last name. In German “horch” means “hear,” which in Latin is “audi”.
