Humor for the day

I took my dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes (he is 92). We decided to grab a bite at the food court. I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him. The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors: green, red, orange, and blue. My dad kept staring at him. The teenager would look and find him staring every time.

When the teenager had had enough, he sarcastically asked, 'What's the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?'

Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response, knowing he would have a good one, and in classic style he did not bat an eye in his response. 'Got drunk once, and had sex with a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my son.'

Not to burst your baloon, but do have any e-mail jokes of a more recent vintage? This one is a couple of years old.

Hysterical! Thanks for sharing. My dad is 75, I love it when he throws one at me. Older people may be a little slower, but they can make you laugh.

Jonnycat - your dad sounds like a riot. I love the quick wit of our elderly. The nice thing about seniors is that they don't feel the need to hold their tongue - they just let it fly. How funny!!

My In-laws are in their late 70's and, after 60 years of marriage are a lot like Abbot and Costello. A few years ago, my husbands' uncle passed away and my sister-in-law was concerned that she had nothing to wear to the funeral. The day before the funeral this conversation ensued b/w father-in-law and mother-in-law:

F-in-law: "Did you get her a dress?" (referring to Bonita)
M-in-law: "Whose address?"
F-in-law: "Bonita!" (rolls his eyes)
M-in-law: "We have her address!" (hand on hip)
F-in-law: "So, you did get her a dress?!"
M-in-law: "Why do we need Bonita's address?"
F-in-law: "We don't! She needs one!"
M-in-law: "She has an address!"
F-in-law: "If she had a dress...she wouldn't have asked you to pick
one up for her!"

This who's on first scenario went on for a good 5 minutes and they were both so annoyed with one another. It was hilarious and went far to lighten the mood in the house. I just know that Uncle Luke was looking down laughing.
