obscene cost of entry into Premiership Football matches where the cheapest
price of £60 or £100 per game is not uncommon.

An elderly chap being interviewed said he could recall many years ago

Subject: Adoption

A couple from a circus go to an adoption agency, but social workers are
doubtful about their accommodation.
So they produce photos of their 15-metre-long caravan, the back half of
which is a beautifully equipped nursery.

The social workers then are doubtful about the education that would be

"We've employed an Oxford don who'll teach the child all the subjects along
with Mandarin and ICT skills".

There are then doubts expressed about the child’s healthy upbringing.

"Our full time nanny is an expert in paediatric welfare and diet", they

"It doesn't really matter", they say, "as long as he fits in the cannon".

She turned to me and asked, "Are you having it catered?"
And that, my friend, is the sad definition of "OLD"!

2. Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very
Elderly widow and asked, "How old was your husband?"

New knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes

subject to blackouts.
Have bouts with dementia.
Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore.
Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92.
Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my
driver's license.

5. I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape,
So I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and
start exercising.

I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired
for an hour. But,
By the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.

6. An elderly woman decided to prepare her will and told her
preacher she had two final requests.

"Wal-Mart?" the preacher exclaimed. "Why Wal-Mart?"

"Then I'll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week."

The good fortune to run into the ones I do, and
The eyesight to tell the difference.
