Bungee Jumping in Mexico – Why it’s a bad idea to start a bungee-jumping business in Mexico
Two men are bungee-jumping one day. The first one says to the second. “You know, we could make a lot of money running our own bungee-jumping service in Mexico.”
The second man thinks this is a great idea, so the two pool their money and buy everything they’ll need – a tower, an elastic cord, insurance, etc. They travel to Mexico and begin to set up on a town square. As they are constructing the tower, a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more people gather to watch them at work.
The first man jumps. He bounces at the end of the cord, but when he comes back up, the second guy notices that he has a few cuts and scratches. Startled, the second man fails to catch him, and he falls again, bounces and comes back up.
This time, he is bruised and bleeding. Again, the second man misses him. The first bungee jumper falls again and bounces back up.
This time, the bungee jumper comes back hurt fairly badly, and is almost unconscious.
Luckily, the second man finally catches him and says, “What happened? Was the cord too long?”
The first man says, “No, the cord was fine, but what is a ‘pinata’?”
