Two pieces of black tarmac are in the pub having a few pints and a laugh, telling jokes and getting a bit drunk.
Then a piece of red tarmac enters the pub and the two pieces of black tarmac stop speaking and just look down at their pints until the red piece of tarmac has ordered his drink and goes off down the other end of the pub to play on the gambling machine.
Then they start up speaking again, and having a laugh like before. The pub landlord is a little confused at whats going on and asks the two pieces of black tarmac why they are scared of the piece of red tarmac.
"What him?, he's a freakin CYCLE PATH"! they replied.
