Paul Menard and Eric Almirola are bungee-jumping one day. Paul says to Eric, "You know, we really suck as racers but I bet we could make a lot of money running our own bungee-jumping service in Mexico."
Eric thinks this is a great idea, so the two pool their money and buy everything they'll need - tower, elastic bungee cord, insurance, etc...
They travel to Mexico and begin to set up in the square. As they are constructing the tower, a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more people gather to watch them at work. After they have everything ready, they decide to give the crowd a demonstration.
Paul jumps and bounces at the end of the cord, but when he comes back up, the Eric notices that he has a few cuts and scratches. Unfortunately, Eric isn't able to catch him, and Paul falls again, bounces and comes back up again.
This time, he is bruised and bleeding. Again, Eric misses him. Paul falls again and bounces back up. This time, he comes back pretty messed up - he's got a couple of broken bones and is almost unconscious.
Luckily, Eric finally catches him this time and says, "What happened? Was the cord too long?"
Paul says, "No, the cord was fine, but what the he!! is a "pinata?"
