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.”

    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 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 at 3:40 pm

      I agree, telling his wasn't necessary. 🙂

  11. April 5, 2016 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 at 3:40 pm

      The doctor was certainly mean about this though. 🙂

  12. April 5, 2016 at 8:31 am

    LOL! Too funny. 🙂

    DNA test, here we come.

    • April 5, 2016 at 3:41 pm

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

  14. April 5, 2016 at 9:57 am

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

    • April 5, 2016 at 3:41 pm

      Looks like the doc did just that. 🙂

  15. April 5, 2016 at 10:42 am

    Hee hee. That's a good one.

  16. April 5, 2016 at 11:36 am

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

    • April 5, 2016 at 3:41 pm

      Very few, but some. 🙂

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

    • April 5, 2016 at 3:42 pm

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

  18. April 5, 2016 at 1:36 pm

    LOL!!! That's too funny!!! 😀

  19. April 5, 2016 at 2:46 pm

    OH MY GOSH!! That is hilarious!

    what a great joke 🙂

    • April 5, 2016 at 3:43 pm

      I feel bad for the old guy though. 🙂

  20. April 5, 2016 at 7:16 pm

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

    • April 6, 2016 at 7:24 am

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

  21. April 5, 2016 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 at 7:24 am

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

  22. April 6, 2016 at 3:21 pm

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

    • April 6, 2016 at 3:29 pm

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

  23. April 6, 2016 at 3:34 pm

    Yeeps, someone stole his thunder. Tee hee!

    • April 6, 2016 at 3:50 pm

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

  24. April 7, 2016 at 5:55 am

    My pet rock wants that umbrella.

    • April 7, 2016 at 10:47 am

      Of course he does. 🙂
