"… I didn’t tell this [joke] to Gorbachev…
There is a 10 year wait for getting your own car, and you have to put up the money in advance. One man laid down the money, and the fellow in charge said to him: "Come back in 10 years and get your car."
The man answered: "Morning or afternoon?"
And the fellow behind the counter said: "Ten years from now, what difference does it make?"
The man replied: "Well, the plumber is coming in the morning."
