“Have you got anything smaller?” (taxi joke)

Taxi drivers often ask for small denominations of cash, and a NSFW joke refers to this. A woman gets into a taxi for a ride, and then says that she doesn’t have money. She hikes up her dress and shows herself to the cab driver, who says, “Got anything smaller?”

The taxi joke has been cited in print since at least the 1980s.

“A naked woman gets into a taxi…” is a related joke that is often combined with this one.

The cabbie says, “Don’t you have anything smaller?

Talk about coincidences…

I was watching an episode of “Night Court” this past weekend (the one when Dan gets a briefcase bomb handcuffed to his wrist by a psycho).

As Dan is gingerly reentering the courtroom, Harry is finishing up a joke with Mac and Christine.  Harry’s punchline:  “The taxi driver then says, “Have you got anything smaller?”
(This episode of Night Court originally aired on January 7, 1988.—ed.)

A naked woman gets into a taxi.  When they reach their destination, the driver looks over his shoulder and tells the woman how much she has to pay.  The woman, being naked, decides to pay in a different way and lies back in the seat, opens her legs up, and says, “How about this?” The driver takes a look and then replies, “Haven’t you got anything smaller?”

10 July 1999, The Spectator (London, UK), “Learning experience” by Taki, pg. 46:
A naked woman gets into a taxi and tells the driver to take her to Annabel’s, 44 Berkeley Square. ‘But, love, how are you going to pay me?’ the cabbie asks the totally naked lady. Stretched out in the back of the cab, she opens her legs wide. ‘Haven’t you got anything smaller?’ asks the driver.
