Getting older is not a joke, but there are some who handle it well and some who refuse to take aging lying down. If you can still laugh, it means you're not dead yet!
The senior man in this joke preferred a comfortable deception rather than face an uneasy truth. Enjoy!

An 80-year-old man is having his annual checkup and his family doctor who has been with him for fifty years asks him how he’s feeling. He replies:
“I’ve never been better! I recently found love again! I got married to a beautiful girl fresh out of school. So, now I’ve got an 18-year-old bride who’s pregnant and having my child! What do you think about that?”

The doctor considers this for a moment, then says:
“Well, let me tell you a story. I know a guy who’s an avid hunter. You probably know old Joe. Anyway, he never misses a season. But one day he’s in a bit of a hurry and he accidentally grabs his umbrella instead of his gun."
The old man is quiet, wondering what the point of this story is and who could possibly mistake an umbrella for a gun!

The doctor continues: "So, Joe’s in the woods when suddenly a grizzly bear appears right in front of him! Well, he doesn't know he forgot to bring his gun. Old Joe raises up his umbrella, points it at the bear, and squeezes the handle. The bear drops dead 10 feet in front of him.”
The old man frowns and splutters at the doctor:
“That’s impossible! Someone else must have shot that bear!”

“Exactly,” the doctor nods.
There are changes you go through as you get older that you cannot deny. The difference is how you get through it and laughter is, after all, the best medicine.
