A married couple, trying to live up to a snobbish lifestyle in Manhatten, went to a party.
The conversation turned to Mozart. "Absolutely brilliant, magnificent, a genius!" Commented a particularly snobbish woman.
The wife, wanting to join in the conversation, remarked casually, "Ah, Mozart. Youíre so right. I love him. Only this morning I saw him getting on the No. 5 bus going to Penn station."
There was a sudden hush, and everyone looked at her. Her husband was mortified. He pulled her away and whispered, "We're leaving right now. Get your coat and let's get out of here."
As they drove home, he kept muttering to himself.
Finally his wife turned to him. "You're angry about something."
"Oh really? You noticed?" he sneered. "I've never been so embarrassed in my life! We were trying to make a good impression on those people. You saw Mozart take the No.5 bus to Penn station? You idiot! Don't you know the No.5 bus doesn't go to Penn station?"
