Dick Van Dyke was lucky to escape with his life when his Jaguar caught fire in Los Angeles on Monday (August 19). That didn’t stop the funny man from cracking jokes about it on Twitter, though.
Van Dyke, 87 years old, writes on Twitter, “Used Jag for sale REAL CHEAP!” He also includes a photo of the car, which is burned to a shocking level. It’s a miracle Van Dyke was able to get out of the car without injury, considering the shape his Jaguar was left in.
Dick followed that message with a short poem, reading, “I once drove a car that could fly, I had never driven so high. But, I recently found, even back on the ground, U still can be left high and dry.” Obviously, his sense of humor is completely intact.
