ANDY ROONEY’S THEORY OF LIFE
The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death. What’s that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backward.
You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out because you’re too young, you get a gold watch and you go to work. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities. You become a little baby, you go back into the womb, Spend your last nine months floating and you finish off as an orgasm.
Ain’t that the truth?
A few days ago I was tooling along through a neighborhood on my wheelchair when I noticed a young boy sitting on the retaining wall in front of his house, crying as if his heart was breaking.
I pulled alongside the youngster and asked, “Son, what’s the matter? Why are you crying so?”
“I’m… cry… crying ’cause I can’t do what my 20-year-old brother does,” he said.
So I sat there and cried with him.
THE ROOSTER CONTEST
A farmer goes out one day and buys a brand new stud rooster to copulate with his chickens. The farmer puts the rooster straight in the pen so he can get down to
The young rooster walks over to the old rooster and says “OK, old fellow, time to retire.”
The old rooster says, “You can’t handle all these chickens….look at what it did to me!”
The young rooster replies, “Now, don’t give me a hassle about this. Time for the old to step aside and let the young to take over, so take a hike.”
The old rooster says, “Aw, c’mon…..just let me have the two old hens over in the corner. I won’t bother you.”
The young rooster says, “Scram! Beat it! You’re washed up! I’m taking over!”
So, the old rooster thinks for a minute and then says to the young rooster, “I’ll tell you what, young fellow, I’ll have a race with you around the farmhouse. Whoever wins the race gets the domain of the chicken coop. And if I’m so feeble, why not give me a little head start?”
The young rooster says, “Sure, why not, you know I’ll still beat you.”
They line up in back of the farmhouse, get a chicken go cluck “Go!” and the old rooster takes off running.
About 15 seconds later the young rooster takes off after him. They round the front of the farmhouse and the young rooster is only about 5 inches behind the old rooster and gaining fast.
The farmer, sitting on the porch, looks up, sees what’s going on, grabs his shotgun and BOOM!, he shoots the young rooster dead. He shakes his head gloomily and says to his wife …
“Son of a bitch … third gay rooster I bought this week!”
An elderly couple was driving across the country. While the woman was behind the wheel, the couple was pulled over by the highway patrol.
“Ma’am, did you know you were speeding?” the officer said.
The woman, hard of hearing, turned to her husband and asked, “What did he
“He said you were speeding!” the old man yelled.
The patrolman then asked, “May I see your license?”
The woman turned to her husband again, “What did he say?”
The old man yelled back, “He wants to see your license!”
The woman then gave the officer her license.
“I see you are from Arkansas,” the patrolman said. “I spent some time there once and went on a blind date with the ugliest woman I’ve ever seen.”
The woman turned to her husband again and asked, “What did he say?”
The old man replied, “He said he knows you!”
THE FROG. THE KISS. THE SURPRISE.
So, this senior citizen was walking across a damp meadow when he heard a female voice say, “Sir, I would like to ask a great favor of you “He looked around and saw only a frog sitting on a grass pod. “I must be going nuts,” he thought, “There’s no one here.”
The voice then said, “Please, sir. Please help me.”
Again all he saw was the frog which was looking straight at him. “Who said that?” he asked rather loudly.
“I did, sir. I’m the frog. I was a beautiful 19-year-old princess but a witch put a spell on me. Please help me.”
The old man picked up the frog and held it in his hand. “How can I help you?” he asked.
“The only thing that will break the spell is to have a man kiss me in the mouth. Please do it for me, and then I will again turn into a beautiful, sexy, princess and I will really make you feel young again. I will make great love to you.”
The man closed his hand about the frog and stuffed it into his pocket. “At my age,” he said, “I’d rather have a talking frog.”
An elderly woman went into the doctor’s office. When the doctor asked why she was there, she replied, “I’d like to have some birth-control pills.
“Taken back, the doctor thought for a minute and then said, “Excuse me, Mrs. Smith, but you’re 72 years old. What possible use could you have for birth control pills?”
The woman responded, “They help me sleep better.”
The doctor thought some more and continued, “How in the world do birth control pills help you to sleep better?”
The woman said, “Simple, I put them in my granddaughter’s orange juice every morning and I sleep better at night.”
An older couple were lying in bed one night. The husband was falling asleep but the wife was in a romantic mood and wanted to talk.
She said: “You use to hold my hand when we were courting.”
Wearily he reached across, held her hand for a second and tried to get back to sleep.
A few moments later she said: “Then you use to kiss me.”
Mildly irritated, he reached across, gave her a peck on the cheek and settled down to sleep.
Thirty seconds later she said: Then you use to bite my neck”
Angrily, he threw back the bed clothes and got out of bed.
“Where are you going?” she asked.
“To get my teeth!”
Every Sunday a little old lady placed $1,000 in the collection plate. It went on for weeks until the priest, overcome with curiosity, approached her.
“My dear, I couldn’t help but notice that you put $1,000 a week in the collection plate,” he said.
“Why yes,” she replied, “every week my son sends me money, and what I don’t need I give to the church.”
“That’s wonderful. How much does he send you?” the priest asked. “He sends me $2,000 a week,” she replied proudly.
“Your son is very successful,” said the priest. “What does he do for a living?”
“He is a veterinarian,” she answered. “That is a very honorable profession,” the priest assured her.
“Where does he practice?”
“Well, she replied, “he has one cat house in Kansas City and another in New Orleans.”
WHAT WAS THAT AGAIN?
Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.
One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, “Now don’t get mad at me…..I know we’ve been friends for a long? time…..but I just can’t think of your name. I’ve thought and thought, but I can’t remember it. Please tell me what your name is.”
Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her. Finally, she said, “How soon do you need to know ?
THE PERFECT HUSBAND
When I went to lunch today, I noticed an old lady sitting on a park bench sobbing her eyes out. I stopped and asked her what was wrong. She said, “I have a 22-year-old husband at home. He makes love to me every morning and then gets up and makes me pancakes, sausage, fresh fruit and freshly ground coffee.”
I said, “Well, then why are you crying ?”
She said, “He makes me homemade soup for lunch and my favorite brownies and then makes love to me for half the afternoon”.
I said, “Well, why are you crying ?”
She said, “For dinner, he makes me a gourmet meal with wine and my favorite dessert and then makes love to me until 2:00 a.m.
I said, “Well, why in the world would you be crying ?”
She said, “I can’t remember where I live.”
RAISING THE DEAD
Grandma and Grandpa were watching a healing service on the television.
The evangelist called to all who wanted to be healed to go to their television set, place one hand on the TV and the other hand on the body part where they wanted to be healed.
Grandma got up and slowly hobbled to the television set, placed her right hand on the set and her left hand on her arthritic shoulder that was causing her to have great pain.
Then Grandpa got up, went to the TV, placed his right hand on the set and his left hand on his crotch.
Grandma scowled at him and said,
“I guess you just don’t get it. The purpose of doing this is to heal the sick, not to raise the dead.”
DO YOU REMEMBER?
A husband and wife were celebrating their 50th anniversary. That night the wife approached her husband wearing the exact same sexy negligee she had worn on their wedding night. She looked at her husband and said, “Honey, do you remember this?”
He looked up at her and said, “Yes dear, I do. You wore that same negligee the night we were married.”
She said, “That’s right. Do you remember what you said to me that night?”
He nodded and said, “Yes dear, I still remember.”
“Well, what was it?” she asked. He responded, “As I remember, I said, ‘Oh baby, I’m going to suck the life out of those big tits and screw your brains out.'”
She giggled and said, “Yes honey, that’s exactly what you said. So, now it’s 50 years later, and I’m in the same negligee I wore that night. What do you have to say tonight?”
Again he looked up at her, and he replied, “Mission accomplished.”
There were two elderly people living in a Florida mobile home park. He was a widower and she a widow. They had known one another for a number of years.
One evening there was a community supper in the big activity center. The two were at the same table, across from one another. As the meal went on, he made a few admiring glances at her and finally gathered his courage to ask her, “Will you marry me?”
After about six seconds of ‘careful consideration,’ she answered. “Yes,. Yes, I will.”
The meal ended and, with a few more pleasant exchanges, they went to their respective places. Next morning, he was troubled. “Did she say ‘yes’ or did she say ‘no’?” He couldn’t remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. Not even a faint memory. With trepidation, he went to the telephone and called her. First, he explained that he didn’t remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past.
As he gained a little more courage, he inquired, “When I asked if you would marry me, did you say ‘Yes’ or did you say ‘No’?”
He was delighted to hear her say, “Why, I said, ‘Yes, yes I will’ and I meant it with all my heart.” Then she continued, “I am so glad that you called, because I couldn’t remember who had asked me.”
WHAT HEAVEN’S LIKE
Three guys die together and go to heaven.
St. Peter says, “We only have one rule here: Don’t step on the ducks, as
they are God’s favorite creation.”
They enter heaven and see ducks everywhere, and it’s almost impossible NOT
to step on a duck. The first guy accidentally steps on one, and soon here
comes St. Peter with the ugliest woman you’ve ever seen. St. Peter chains
them together and says, “Your punishment is to be chained to this ugly woman
The next day the second guy steps on a duck, and sure enough, St. Peter
comes with another real ugly woman and chains them together.
Seeing this, the third guy is very, very careful. He goes for months and
doesn’t step on any ducks. Then one day, St. Peter comes along with this
beautiful woman, a blue-eyed blonde, very young and very sexy. He chains
them together and leaves without saying a word.
The man remarks, “Wow! This is great! I wonder what I did to deserve
The Blonde says, “I don’t know about you, but I just stepped on a duck.”
An elderly married couple scheduled their annual medical examination the same day, so they could travel together.
After the examination, the doctor then said to the elderly man “You appear to be in good health. Do you have any medical concerns that you would like to discuss with me?”
“In fact, I do”, said the man. “After I have sex with my wife for the first time, I am usually hot and sweaty. And then, after I have sex with my wife the second time, I am usually cold and chilly.”
“This is very interesting”, replied the doctor. “Let me do some research and get back to you.”
After examining the elderly lady, the doctor said “Everything appears to be fine. Do you have any medical concerns that you would like to discuss with me?”
The lady replied that she had no questions or concerns.
The doctor then said, “Your husband had an unusual concern. He claims that he is usually hot and sweaty after having sex the first time with you and then cold and chilly after the second time. Do you know why?”
“Oh that old buzzard!” she replied. “That’s because the first time is usually in July and the second time is usually in December!!!”
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 elderly 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 is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know… the one that is red and has thorns.”
“Do you mean a rose?”
“Yes,” the man said. He turned toward the kitchen and yelled, “Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to last night?”
At the beginning of my shift, I placed a stethoscope on an elderly and slightly deaf female patient’s anterior chest wall.
“Big breaths,” I instructed.
“Yes, they used to be,” remorsed the patient.
An elderly couple is enjoying an anniversary dinner together in a small tavern. The husband leans over and asks his wife, “Do you remember the first time we had sex together over fifty years ago? We went behind this tavern where you leaned against the fence and I made love to you from behind?”
“Yes,” she says, “I remember it well.”
“OK,” he says, “How about taking a stroll ’round there again and we can do it for old time’s sake.”
“Oooooooh Henry, you devil, that sounds like a good idea,” she answers.
There’s a police officer sitting in the next booth listening to all this and having a chuckle to himself. He thinks, ‘I’ve got to see this…two old-timers having sex against a fence. I’ll just keep an eye on them so’s there’s no trouble.’
So he follows them.
They walk haltingly along, leaning on each other for support, aided by walking sticks. Finally, they get to the back of the tavern and make their way to the fence.
The old lady lifts her skirt, takes her knickers down and the old man drops his trousers. She turns around and as she hangs on to the fence, the old man moves in. Suddenly they erupt into the most furious sex that the watching policeman has ever seen. They are bucking and jumping like 18-year-olds. This goes on for about thirty minutes!
She’s yelling, “Ohhhh, God!”
He’s hanging on to her hips for dear life. This is the most athletic sex imaginable. Finally, they both collapse panting on the ground.
The policeman is amazed. He thinks he has learned something about life that he didn’t know. He starts to think about his own aged parents and wonders whether they still have sex like this.
After about half an hour of lying on the ground recovering, the old couple struggles to their feet and put their clothes back on.
The policeman, still watching thinks, ‘That was truly amazing, he was going like a train. I’ve got to ask him what his secret is.’
As the couple pass, he says to them, “That was something else, you must have been shagging for about forty minutes. How do you manage it? You must have had a fantastic life together. Is there some sort of secret?”
“No, there’s no secret,” the old man says, “except that fifty years ago that damn fence wasn’t electric.”
THE JOY OF SHARING
The little old couple walked slowly into McDonald’s that cold winter evening.
They looked out of place amid the young families and young couples eating
there that night. Some of the customers looked admiringly at them. You could
tell what the admirers were thinking. “Look, there is a couple who has been
through a lot together, probably for 60 years or more!”
The little old man walked right up to the cash register, placed his order
with no hesitation and then paid for their meal. The couple took a table
near the back wall and started taking food off of the tray. There was one
hamburger, one order of French fries and one drink.
The little old man unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in
half. He placed one half in front of his wife. Then he carefully counted out
the French fries, divided them in two piles and neatly placed one pile in
front of his wife. He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then
set the cup down between them.
As the man began to eat his few bites of hamburger the crowd began to get
restless. Again you could tell what they were thinking. “That poor old
couple. All they can afford is one meal for the two of them.”
As the man began to eat his French fries one young man stood and came over
to the old couple’s table. He politely offered to buy another meal for the
old couple to eat. The old man replied that they were just fine. They were
used to sharing everything.
Then the crowd noticed that the little old lady hadn’t eaten a bite. She
just sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns
sipping the drink. Again the young man came over and begged them to let him
buy them something to eat. This time the lady explained that no, they were
used to sharing everything together.
As the little old man finished eating and was wiping his face neatly with a
napkin the young man could stand it no longer. Again he came over to their
table and offered to buy some food. After being politely refused again he
finally asked a question of the little old lady.
“Ma’am, why aren’t you eating? You said that you share everything. What is
it that you are waiting for?
She answered, “The teeth.”
SIGNS OF MENOPAUSE
1. You sell your home heating system at a yard sale.
2. Your husband jokes that instead of buying a wood stove, he is using you to heat the family room this winter. Rather than just saying you are not amused, you shoot him.
3. You have to write post-it notes with your kids’ names on them.
4. Your husband chirps, “Hi honey, I’m home.” And your reply, “Well, if it isn’t Ozzie Fucking Nelson.”
5. The Phenobarbital dose that wiped out the Heaven’s Gate Cult gives you four hours of decent rest.
6. You change your underwear after every sneeze.
7. You’re on so much estrogen that you take your Brownie troop on a field trip to Chippendales.
One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She
suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast to her brunette hair.
She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, “Why are some of your
hairs white, Mom?” Her mother replied, “Well, every time that you do
something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white.”
The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said,
“Momma, how come ALL of grandma’s hairs are white?”
*I’m Not Old … Just Mature*
Today at the drugstore, the clerk was a gent.
From my purchase, this chap took off 10 percent.
I asked for the cause of a lesser amount;
And he answered, “Because of the Seniors Discount.”
I went to McDonald’s for a burger and fries;
And there, once again, got quite a surprise.
The clerk poured some coffee which he handed to me.
He said, “For you seniors, the coffee is free.”
Understand — I’m not old — I’m merely mature;
But some things are changing, temporarily, I’m sure.
The newspaper print gets smaller each day,
And people speak softer — can’t hear what they say.
My teeth are my own (I have the receipt),
and my glasses identify people I meet.
Oh, I’ve slowed down a bit … not a lot, I am sure.
You see, I’m not old … I’m only mature.
The gold in my hair has been bleached by the sun.
You should see all the damage that chlorine has done.
Washing my hair has turned it all white,
But don’t call it gray … saying “blond” is just right.
My car is all paid for … not a nickel is owed.
Yet a kid yells, “Old duffer … get off of the road!”
My car has no scratches … not even a dent.
Still, I get all that guff from a punk who’s “Hell bent.”
My friends all get older … much faster than me.
They seem much more wrinkled, from what I can see.
I’ve got “character lines,” not wrinkles … for sure,
But don’t call me old … just call me mature.
The steps in the houses they’re building today
Are so high that they take … your breath all away;
And the streets are much steeper than 10 years ago.
That should explain why my walking is slow.
But I’m keeping up on what’s hip and what’s new,
And I think I can still dance a mean boogaloo.
I’m still in the running … in this I’m secure,
I’m not really old … I’m only mature.
This 85-year-old-couple, having been married almost 60 years, died in a car crash. They had been in good health the last ten years, mainly due to the wife’s neurotic interest in health food.
When they reached the pearly gates, St. Peter took them to their mansion, which was decked out with a beautiful kitchen and master bath suite and Jacuzzi. As they oohed and aahed, the old man asked Peter how much of this was going to cost.
“It’s free,” Peter replied, “Remember, this is Heaven.”
Next, they went out back to see the championship golf course the home backed up to. They would have golfing privileges every day, and each week the course changed to a new one representing the great golf courses on Earth.
The old man asked, “What are the green fees?”
“This is heaven,” St. Peter replied. “You play for free.”
Next, they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch with the cuisines of the world laid out. “How much to eat?” asked the old man.
“Don’t you understand yet?” St. Peter asked. “This is heaven. It’s free!”
“Well, where are the low fat and low cholesterol foods?” the old man asked timidly.
“That’s the best part…you can eat as much as you like of whatever you like and you never get fat and you never get sick. This is Heaven.”
The old man looked at his wife and said, “You and your darn bran muffins. I could have been here ten years ago!”
I have become a little older since I saw you last, and a few changes have come into my life since then. Frankly, I have become a frivolous old gal. I am seeing five gentlemen every day. As soon as I wake up, Will Power helps me get out of bed. Then I go to see John. Then Charlie Horse comes along, and when he is here he takes a lot of my time and attention. When he leaves, Arthur Ritis shows up and stays the rest of the day. He doesn’t like to stay
in one place very long, so he takes me from joint to joint. After such a busy day, I’m really tired and glad to go to bed with Ben Gay. What a life.
Oh yes, I’m also flirting with Al Zymer.
P.S. The preacher came to call the other day. He said at my age I should be thinking of the hereafter. I told him, “Oh I do it all the time. No matter where I am, in the parlor, upstairs, in the kitchen, or down in the basement, I ask myself, “Now, what am I here after?”
A lady in her late 40’s went to a plastic surgeon for a facelift. The
Dr. told her of a new procedure called “The Knob”. This small knob is
planted on the back of a woman’s head and can be turned to tighten up the skin to
produce the effect of a brand new facelift forever. Of course, the woman
wanted “The Knob.”
Fifteen years later the woman went back to the surgeon with two
“All these years everything had been working just fine. I’ve had to turn
the knob on lots of occasions and I’ve loved the results.
But now I’ve developed two annoying problems. First of all, I’ve got
these terrible bags under my eyes and the knob won’t get rid of them.”
The doctor looked at her and said, “Those aren’t bags, those are your
She replied, “Well, I guess that explains the goatee.”
Four men were out golfing.
“These hills are getting steeper as the years go by,”
“These fairways seem to be getting longer too,” said
one of the others.
“The sand traps seem to be bigger than I remember them
too,” said the third senior.
After hearing enough from his senior buddies, the oldest
and the wisest of the four of them at 87 years old, piped up
and said, “Just be thankful we’re still on the right side
of the grass!”
An elderly woman accompanied her even more elderly husband to the doctor’s office. After his checkup, the doctor called the wife into his office alone. He said, “Your husband is suffering from a very severe disease combined with horrible stress. If you don’t do the following, your husband will surely die:
“Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant; make sure he is in a good mood. For lunch make him a nutritious meal he can take to work. And for dinner, prepare an especially nice meal for him. Don’t burden him with chores, as this could further his stress. Don’t discuss your problems with him; it will only make his stress worse. Try to relax your husband in the evening by wearing lingerie and giving him plenty of back rubs. Encourage him to watch some type of team sporting event on television. And most importantly, make love with your husband several times a week and satisfy his every whim.
“If you can do this for the next 10 months to a year, I think your husband will regain his health completely.”
On the way home, the husband asked his wife, “What did the doctor say?”
“You’re going to die,” she replied.

Old Couple Holiday
There’s an old couple, both in their 80’s, on a sentimental holiday they
went back to the spot where they first met. They’re sitting in a pub and he
says to her, “Do you recall the first time we had sex together, over fifty
years ago? We went behind the barn. You leaned against the fence and I made
love to you from behind.”
“Yes,” she says, “I remember it well.”
“OK,” he says, “How about taking a stroll round there again and we can do it
for old times sake?”
“Ooh Henry, you devil, that sounds like a good idea,” she answers.
There’s a man sitting at the next table listening to all this, having a
chuckle to himself. He thinks, ‘I’ve got to see this, two old-timers having
sex against a fence.’ So he follows them.
They walk haltingly along, leaning on each other for support, aided by
walking sticks. Finally, they get to the back of the barn and make their way
to the fence. The old lady lifts her skirt, takes her knickers down and the
old man drops his trousers. She turns around and as she hangs on to the
fence, the old man moves in.
Suddenly they erupt into the most furious sex the watching man has ever
seen. They are bucking and jumping like eighteen-year-olds. This goes on for
about forty minutes. She’s yelling “Ohhh God!” He’s hanging on to her hips
for dear life. This is the most athletic sex imaginable. Finally, they both
collapse panting on the ground.
The guy watching is amazed. He thinks he has learned something about life
that he didn’t know. He starts to think about his own aged parents and
wonders whether they still have sex like this. After about half an hour of
lying on the ground recovering, the old couple struggles to their feet and
put their clothes back on.
The guy, still watching thinks, that was truly amazing, he was going like a
train. I’ve got to ask him what his secret is.
As the couple pass, the guy says to them, “That was something else, you must
have been going at it for about forty minutes. How do you manage it? Is
there some sort of secret?”
“No, there’s no secret,” the old man says, “except fifty years ago that frigging fence wasn’t electric.”
Three Old Ladies
Three old ladies were sitting side by side in their retirement home, reminiscing.
The first lady recalled shopping at the green grocers, and demonstrated with her hands the length and thickness of a cucumber she could buy for a penny.
The second old lady nodded, adding that onions used to be much bigger and cheaper also, then demonstrated the size of two big onions she could buy for a penny a piece.
Then the third old lady chipped in with: “I can’t hear a word you’re saying, but I remember the guy you’re talking about.”
Sun City Senior Citizens
A group of Sun City Senior citizens were sitting around talking about their
“My arms are so weak I can barely hold a cup of coffee”, said one.
“Yes, I know. My cataracts are so bad I can’t even see my coffee”, replied
“I can’t turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck”, said a third, to
which several nodded in agreement.
My blood pressure pills make me dizzy,” another went on..
“I guess that’s the price we pay for getting old,” winced an old man as he
shook his head.
Then there was a short moment of silence.
“Well, it’s not that bad,” said one woman cheerfully. “Thank God, we can all still drive”!
Two Old Men
Two elderly gentlemen, who had been without sex for several years, decided they needed to visit a cat-house for some tail….. When they arrived, the madam took one look at them and decided she wasn’t going to waste any of her girls on these two old men.
So she used “blow-up” dolls instead. She put the dolls in each man’s room and left them to their business. After the two men were finished, they started walking home and began to talking. The first man said, “I think the girl I had was dead. She never moved, talked or even groaned… how was it for you?”
The second man replied, “I think mine was a witch. When I nibbled on her breast….. she farted and flew out the window!”

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS
Maalox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
walkers and handrails and new dental fittin’s
Bundles of magazines tied up with string,
These are a few of my favorite things.
Cadillacs, cataracts, hearing aids, glasses,
Polident, Fixodent, false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
These are a few of my favorite things.
When the pipes leak,
When the bones creak,
when the knees go bad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel so bad.
Hot tea and crumpets, and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food and no food with onions,
Bathrobes and heat pads and hot meals they bring,
These are a few of my favorite things.
Back pains, confused brains, and no fear of sinning’,
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinning’,
As we won’t mention our short shrunken frames,
When we remember our favorite things.
When the joints ache, when the hips break,
When the eyes grow dim,
THEN I REMEMBER THE GREAT LIFE I’VE HAD,
AND THEN I DON’T FEEL SOOOOO BAAAAD.

“Oh dear! I’m so very sorry,” replied her friend, “What did you do?”
“Opened a can of peas instead.”
AS I AGE:
When I was in my younger days, I weighed a few pounds less, I needn’t hold my tummy in To wear a belted dress.
But now that I am older, I’ve set my body free; There’s comfort of elastic Where once my waist would be.
Inventor of those high-heeled shoes My feet have not forgiven; have to wear a nine now, But used to wear a seven.
And how about those pantyhoseThey’re sized by weight, you see, So how come when I put them on, The crotch is at my knees?
I need to wear these glasses As the prints were getting smaller; And it wasn’t very long ago I know that I was taller.
Though my hair has turned to silver and my skin no longer fits, On the inside, I’m the same old me, Just the outside’s changed a bit.
I WANT TO GO BACK TO THE TIME WHEN…………………

70-year old George went for his annual physical. All of his tests came back with normal results. Dr. Smith said, “George, everything looks great physically. How are you doing mentally and emotionally? Are you at peace with yourself, and do you have a good relationship with God?”
George replied, “God and me are tight. He knows I have poor eyesight, so he’s fixed it so that when I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom poof the light goes on, when I’m done poof the light goes off.”
“Wow!” commented Dr. Smith, “That’s incredible!”
A little later in the day, Dr. Smith called George’s wife. “Ethel,” he said, “George is doing fine. Physically he’s great. But, I had to call because I’m in awe of his relationship with God. Is it true that he gets up during the night and poof the light goes on in the bathroom, and then when he is through poof the light goes off?”
Ethel exclaimed, “Oh, my God! He’s peeing in the refrigerator again!”

Granny was in her eighties and much admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.
The pastor came to call on her one afternoon early in the spring, and she welcomed him into her parlor.
He took a seat while she prepared some tea. As he sat facing her old pump organ, the minister noticed a cut glass bowl sitting on top of it, filled with water. In the water floated, of all things, a condom.
Imagine his shock, surprise, and, curiosity! Surely, Miss Granny had flipped! But he felt he couldn’t mention the strange sight in her parlor.
“When she returned with tea and cookies, they began to chat. The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and the floating item, but soon it got the better of him, and he could resist no longer.
“Miss Granny” he said while pointing to the bowl, “I wonder if you would tell me about this?”
“Oh, yes,” she replied, “isn’t it wonderful? I was walking downtown last fall and I found this little package. The directions said to put it on the organ, keep it wet, and it would prevent disease! And you know…I haven’t had a cold all winter.”

A retired gentleman went into the social security office to apply for Social Security.
After waiting in line for a long time, he got to the counter. The woman behind the counter asked him for his driver’s license to verify his age.

Howard is 95 and lives in a senior citizen home. Every night after dinner, Howard goes to a secluded garden behind the center to sit and ponder his accomplishments and long life.
One evening, Annabel, age 87, wanders into the garden. They begin to chat, and before they know it, several hours have passed. After a short lull in their conversation, Howard turns to Annabel and asks, “Do you know what I miss most of all?”
She asks “What?”
He replies “SEX!!!”.
Annabel exclaims, “Why you old fart, you couldn’t get it up if I held a gun to your head!”
“I know”, Howard says, “but it would be nice if a woman just held it for a while”.
“Well, I can oblige”, says Annabel, who gently unzips his trousers and removes his manhood and proceeds to hold it. Afterward, they agree to meet secretly each night in the garden where they would sit and talk and Annabel would hold Howard’s manhood.
Then, one night, Howard didn’t show up at their usual meeting place. Alarmed, Annabel decided to find Howard and make sure that he was O.K. She walked around the home until she found him sitting by the pool with another female resident who was holding Howard’s manhood!
Furious, Annabel yelled, “You two-timing creep! What does she have that I don’t have?!?”
Howard smiled and replied……………”Parkinson’s”
