A Joke about a Puerto Rican

My Puerto Rican papi and tio and I cracked up when someone emailed this to us.

A young Puerto Rican man walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan officer. He tells the loan officer that he is going to Puerto Rico on a vacation for two weeks and needs to borrow $1,000. The bank officer tells him that the bank will need some form of security for the loan, so the young man hands over the keys to a new BMW 740i. The car is parked on the street in front of the bank. The young man produces the title and everything checks out. The loan officer agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The banks president and its officers all enjoy a good laugh at the Puerto Rican for using a $80,000 BMW as collateral against a $1,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drives the BMW into the banks underground garage and parks it there. Two weeks later, the young man returns, repays the $1,000 and the interest, which comes to $15.41. The loan officer says, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a very successful businessman. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $1,000?" The Boricua replies: "Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return?" The bank employee`s watch as he pulls out of the garage, windows down and sunroof open. Salsa music was blasting from his car as he pulled away...
