It seems like almost every group out there, we can't make fun of or joke about anymore,
This is indeed, truly sad,
But so far, it seems like we can still beat up on the older generation, so here goes:
An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the
wives left the table and went into the kitchen.
The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, “Last night we went out to a
new restaurant and it was really great I would recommend it very highly.”
The other man said, “What is the name of the restaurant?”
The first man thought and thought and finally said, “What’s the name of that
flower you give to someone you love? You know, the one that's red and has thorns.”
“Do you mean a rose?”
“Yes, that's the one,” replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled,
“Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night ?”
Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, while
working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the
bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital.
After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator. On
the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him. “I don't know,” he said. “She's still
upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.”
A senior citizen said to his eighty-year old buddy: “So I hear you're getting married?”
“Do I know her?”
“This woman, is she good looking?”
“Is she a good cook?”
“Nah, she can't cook too well.”
“Does she have lots of money?”
“Nope! Poor as a church mouse.”
“Well, then, is she good in bed?”
“I don't know.”
“Why in the world do you want to marry her then?”
“Because she can still drive!”
Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical.
A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.
A couple of days later the doctor spoke to Morris and said, “You're really doing great, aren't you?”
Morris replied, “Just doing what you said, Doc: ‘Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.’”
The doctor said, “I didn't say that.... I said, ‘You've got a heart murmur - be careful.’”
A couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things.
During a check-up, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember.
Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair....
“Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?” he asks.
“Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?”
“Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?” She asks.
“No, I can remember it.”
“Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?”
He says, “I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.”
“I'd also like whipped cream”, She asks.
I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?”
Irritated, he says, “I don't need to write it down, I can remember it!
Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!”
Then he toddles into the kitchen.
After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.
She stares at the plate for a moment.
“Where's my toast?”
