A man in his late 70s is at the pub with a mate of his, discussing their respective wives. ‘Mine still thinks she’s a young woman.’ ‘If you want to know how young she is, you could try this little trick. When you get home, ask her what’s for dinner from several distances. Start at 30 feet, then 25 feet, then 20, and so on. The sooner she hears you, the younger she is.’ So, an hour later, the man arrives home and shouts, at a distance of about 30 feet from his wife: ‘Honey, what’s for dinner?’ No answer. He goes a bit closer. ‘Honey, what’s for dinner?’ Still no answer. He goes closer, asks it again, no response… When he’s finally standing in the doorway of the kitchen, about five feet away from his wife, he yells, ‘Honey, what’s for dinner?!’ His wife turns around briskly and says, sounding irritated: ‘I’ve already told you three times now: chicken and mushrooms!’

When she is about to hand him another batch he asks her: ‘Why don’t you eat the peanuts yourself?’ ‘We can’t chew them because we’ve no teeth,’ she replies. ‘We just love the chocolate around them.’

At the shops a man noticed a lady eyeing his two adopted children curiously. The boy was blond, while the girl was black. The lady continued staring. Finally, she asked, ‘Those your kids?’ ‘Yes, they are!’ he answered proudly. ‘They adopted?’ she asked. ‘Yes,’ he replied. ‘I thought so,’ she concluded. ‘I figured you’re too old to have kids that small.’
At the urging of his doctor, an elderly man moved to the deepest countryside. After settling in, he met a neighbour who was also an older man. ‘Say, is this really a healthy place?’ ‘It sure is,’ the man replied. ‘When I first arrived here I couldn’t say one word. I had hardly any hair on my head. I didn’t have the strength to walk across a room, and I had to be lifted out of bed.’ ‘That’s wonderful!’ said the newcomer. ‘How long have you been here?’ ‘I was born here.’

Here is a little secret for building your arm and shoulder muscles. You might want to adopt the regimen for yourself – but be careful to take it gradually. Three days a week works well. Begin by standing straight, with a 5 lb potato sack in each hand. Extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Eventually try to reach a full minute. Relax. After a few weeks, move up to 10 lb potato sacks, and then 50 lb potato sacks, and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100 lb potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight out for more than a full minute. After you feel confident at that level, start putting a couple of potatoes in each sack, but be careful not to overdo it.

Three dead bodies turn up at the mortuary, all with very big smiles on their faces. The coroner calls in the police to tell them what has happened. ‘First body: Frenchman, 60, died of heart failure while drinking vintage champagne and eating foie gras. Hence the enormous smile, Inspector,’ says the coroner. ‘Second body: Scotsman, 25, won £1,000 on the lottery, spent it all on whisky. Died of alcohol poisoning, hence the smile.’ The inspector asks, ‘What of the third body?’ ‘Ah,’ says the coroner. ‘This is the most unusual one: Big Seamus Quinn from Donegal, 30, struck by lightning.’ ‘Why is he smiling then?’ enquires the inspector. ‘He thought he was having his photo taken.’

Three sisters, ages 92, 94, and 96, live in a house together. One night the 96-year-old draws a bath. She puts her foot in and pauses. She yells down the stairs, ‘Was I getting in or out of the bath?’ The 94- year-old yells back, ‘I don’t know. I’ll come up and see.’ She starts up the stairs and pauses. ‘Was I going up the stairs or down?’ The 92-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters.

The two looked at each other and one of them said, ‘Are we crazy or is she crazy? By the time she gets back with the toilet paper, that bird will be a half a mile away.’
