A man decides to stop at an exclusive restaurant for dinner. As he approaches the door to the dining room, he is met by the maitre d', who explains to him that he cannot enter without wearing a tie.
Not having one with him, the man returns to his car and retrieves a pair of jumper cables from his trunk. He then ties them around his neck and proceeds back to the restaurant.
Upon seeing him again the maitre d' says "What do you call that around your neck"?
The man explains to him that it is all he has for a tie.
After much argument from both men the maitre d' finally relents and says . . .
Are you ready?
"Oh all right, I will let you go in this time, but don't start anything!"
