Annual Checkup

An 80-year-old man is having his annual checkup. The doctor asks him how he’s feeling.

”I’ve never been better!” he replies. ”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. 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.”

”So he’s in the woods,” the doctor continues, ”and suddenly a grizzly bear appears in front of him! He raises up his umbrella, points it at the bear, and squeezes the handle. The bear drops dead in front of him, suffering from a bullet wound in his its chest.”

”That’s impossible! Someone else must have shot that bear,” the man said.

”Exactly.”

    LOL – Exactly – I wonder if the poor old guy gets it.

    • April 5, 2016 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm

      He does and I'll bet he doesn't like it one bit. 🙂

    Oh man, buzz kill, Doc! The poor guy was so proud of himself.

    Hope you have a great day, Sandee!

      Some doctors don't have a very good bedside manner. 🙂

    Too funny. Those two make a good pair. Sandee, you and Zane have fantastic day.

    • April 5, 2016 3:38 pm at 3:38 pm

    If that old man was Italian, the baby was his. We Italian are very powerful even in our 80's. Ha,ha,ha.
    Have a very powerful Tuesday Sandy & Zane. See ya.

      I'm guessing men in every race can be powerful at 80. Whatever powerful is for 80. 🙂

    To what LAC said…ditto!

    • April 5, 2016 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm

      I agree, telling his wasn't necessary. 🙂

  11. April 5, 2016 7:13 am at 7:13 am

    He's not exactly Mary Poppins nor a hunter- good thing his wife was along! Tee hee- have a fabulous day!

    • April 5, 2016 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm

      The doctor was certainly mean about this though. 🙂

  12. April 5, 2016 8:31 am at 8:31 am

    LOL! Too funny. 🙂

    • April 5, 2016 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm

      Mean but funny. 🙂

    DNA test, here we come.

    • April 5, 2016 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm

      I'm pretty sure you're right about this. 🙂

  14. April 5, 2016 9:57 am at 9:57 am

    Sounds like the Doc was trying to break the old-timer's heart!

    • April 5, 2016 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm

      Looks like the doc did just that. 🙂

  15. April 5, 2016 10:42 am at 10:42 am

    Hee hee. That's a good one.

    • April 5, 2016 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm

      I agree cube. 🙂

  16. April 5, 2016 11:36 am at 11:36 am

    Heeheehee! Although there are some men that age who would surprise the doctor!

    • April 5, 2016 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm

      Very few, but some. 🙂

    LOL, good one. I like how the doctor explained that one

    • April 5, 2016 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm

      I don't think he should have said this, but his explaining was easy to understand. 🙂

  18. April 5, 2016 1:36 pm at 1:36 pm

    LOL!!! That's too funny!!! 😀

    • April 5, 2016 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm

      And very mean. 🙂

  19. April 5, 2016 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm

    OH MY GOSH!! That is hilarious!

    what a great joke 🙂

    • April 5, 2016 3:43 pm at 3:43 pm

      I feel bad for the old guy though. 🙂

  20. April 5, 2016 7:16 pm at 7:16 pm

    Yeah…he probably doesn't get it. He'll go on thinking he's the dad!

    • April 6, 2016 7:24 am at 7:24 am

      I hope he doesn't get it because that doctor was mean. 🙂

  21. April 5, 2016 9:06 pm at 9:06 pm

    Nobody like having their joy stolen. The patient would have been happier remaining in ignorant bliss. Just sayin.

    • April 6, 2016 7:24 am at 7:24 am

      I agree, the doctor should have kept his big mouth shut. 🙂

  22. April 6, 2016 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm

    You'd be surprised at what some old people can do.

    • April 6, 2016 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm

      I'm old and I think you're right Binky. 🙂

  23. April 6, 2016 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm

    Yeeps, someone stole his thunder. Tee hee!

    • April 6, 2016 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm

      Yep, and there just wasn't any real need to steal it either. 🙂

  24. April 7, 2016 5:55 am at 5:55 am

    My pet rock wants that umbrella.

    • April 7, 2016 10:47 am at 10:47 am

      Of course he does. 🙂
