“Husband wanted! Must be in my age group, must not beat me, must not run around on me and must still be good in bed. All applicants, please apply in person.”

The old man smiled and said: “Therefore, I cannot run around on you!”

“You don’t have any arms either!” she snorted.

Again, the old man smiled. “Therefore, I can never beat you!” he said.

She raised an eyebrow and asked intently: “Are you still good in bed?”
