Keys in another context

Something on television the other night turned our conversation to wife-swapping parties, the kind where everyone throws their car keys into a bowl and then takes pot luck.
 "I suppose you've been to lots of those parties?" I said (joking!)
He looked thoughtful.
"Yes, but the trouble was, I never managed to get a decent car."
So, how do we break it to him that that really isn't the point of the exercise?

  2. Some things are only truly learnt through experience. Dilys and Gareth Jones are holding a wife-swapping party on Friday night. Their address is 69 Prince Charles Road, Cara Park. I have managed to get you and Keith an invitation. They'll be expecting you around eight. Paddy can go too as the Joneses have a Shitsu bitch. Can he bark in Japanese?

  3. Shame on you, SP! ;)
    YP, I'm afraid there would probably be a lot more than wife-swapping going on in Caia Park. ;)
