Can anyone explain this joke? I don't get it! Quote: Tourist from Chicago driving a fancy sportscar pulls up to a farmhouse way out in the country. Old farmer’s sitting on the porch, smoking a corncob pipe. Tourist leans out of his Jaguar and asks, “Say, oldtimer, can you tell me how to get to East Machias?” Old farmer puffs thoughtfully on his pipe a time or two, then says, “Don’tcha move a goddam inch.” (pg37)

Roger Duval The joke is that East Machias is so small that the tourist happened to stop his car right in East Machias and if he moved an inch, he'd be out of it. That's how I took it.
