Hero in His 300C

When a man in Houston, Texas driving his 300C came upon a wild dog attacking a young boy, he quickly stopped his car, jumped out grabbed the animal and throttled it with his two hands.

A reporter saw the incident, from his Chrysler congratulated the man and told him the headline the following day would read, "Local Man Saves Child by Killing Vicious Animal."

The hero, however, told the journalist that he wasn't from Houston. He was on a road trip across the country in his Chrysler 300C.

"Well, then," the reporter said, "the headline will probably say, "Texas Man Saves Child by Killing Dog."

"Actually," the man said, "I'm from Connecticut."

"In that case," the reporter said in a huff, "the headline will read, "Yankee Kills Family Pet."
