Joke about a driver - level 2

A man is driving 200 penguins to London Zoo when his car has a problem and stops on the road. The driver gets out of the car and is looking at the car. Another driver stops in front of him and asks if he needs help. The penguins' driver explains that he is taking the penguins to the zoo and asks if the second man would take the penguins there. He agrees. 
Some hours later, the second driver drives close to the first driver, who is still waiting on the road. The penguins are still on the car, and look happy. 
"I thought that I told you to take those penguins to the zoo," shouts the first driver. 
The second answers, "I did, but I had some extra money, so we are going to the cinema now."
