Phil Silvers gets a surprise gift

A friend of the great comedian Phil Silvers, endeavoring to find a special gift for the proverbial man who had everything, was delighted when Silvers arrived for a weekend visit driving a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. "You won't need that bus this weekend," his host declared. "Let me take it in for a checkup." Silvers obliged and his friend hastily arranged for the installation of a built-in bar, a high-fidelity stereo, a color television set, and a VCR. The Rolls arrived just in time for Silvers' Monday morning departure. "You'd better check before you start out, Phil," the friend casually remarked, "just to be sure everything is in shape." "Oh, that doesn't matter," Silvers replied. "It's a rented car."
