Rick The Hick had saved his pennies, nickles, and dimes -- along with a few quarters -- until he finally had enough money to do what he had wanted to do since he was a teenager:
Take a trip to New York City.
He took the train from his small, rural midwestern town to Grand Central Station.
Once he was off the train, he got outside the station and hailed a taxi.
He got into a taxi and told the cabbie:
"Take me to Manhattan!"
The cabbie turned around and said:
"Buddy boy, this IS Manhattan."
He then added:
"Did you say that to see if I was awake? And if I understood English?"
