A couple was about to celebrate 50 years of marriage together and wanted to celebrate with the entire family, but unfortunately, they hardly ever saw their adult children.
They invited all three children to the anniversary dinner, and for once, all three confirmed, but it wasn't without hiccups.
Their three kids, all very successful and wealthy, agreed to a Sunday dinner in honor of their parents. As usual, they were all late and had varied excuses.
“Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad,” gushed their eldest sone when he arrived. “Sorry, I’m running late… I just didn’t have the time to get you a present.”

“No worry,” said Dad. “The important thing is that we’re all together.” The three of them waited patiently for the other two siblings to arrive.
Son number two showed up half an hour later, blaming a delay at the airport. He announced, “Just flew in from L.A. and didn’t have time to get you anything… I’m sorry.”
“It’s nothing,” said the father, “just glad you could be here today.”
The four of them made small talk while waiting for the last and youngest sibling to arrive.
The daughter – a successful businesswoman, living from one business trip to the next – finally showed up an hour later. “Happy anniversary! I’m sorry, but I’ve been out of town and didn’t bring a present.”
Again the father said, “I really don’t care, at least the five of us are together today.”
Later, during dinner, the father put down his fork, looked up and said, “Listen, you three, there’s something your mother and I need to tell you. We came to this country penniless and desperate. Despite this, we were able to raise you and send you to college. But we never got around to getting married.”

The three kids gasped and said, in unison, “You mean we’re BASTARDS?”
“Yep,” said the dad. “And cheap ones, too!”
