A Japanese businessman who was engaged in a particular corporate meeting held in England. As he stepped out of the airport, he hailed the local cab, boarded it and requested to be driven to his London Hotel.
As the cab was attempting to make its way out to the main road, a ramming and screeching sound was heard. Out passed a Honda Civic CRX Turbo screaming away from the main junction. The Japanese remarked. "Mmmm, Honda! Made in Japan, very powerful, very fast!"
Some distance, a white executive sedan whoosh pass along side the cab a high cruising speed. "Ahhh, Toyota! Also made in Japan, very fast. Also very good, very fast!"
The cab-driver upon hearing the comments, look through the rear mirror and was getting quite annoyed over the Jap's proud attitude. At that moment again, another car came ramming fast, overtaking and cutting every car ahead of it. "Mmmm, Mitsubishi! Also Japan, also very good, very fast. Mmmm!"
It was not long after reaching the designated hotel, the cab halted in front of the lobby door, the cab-driver stared at the meter and proclaimed. "That will be £239.40, sir!"
"What?", the Jap was astonished. "The airport very near to hotel."
"Er, sir, this meter is NEC, made in Japan, very good and 'very fast'."
