Everything’s Funny

…. even old age!

My mom’s husband turns 80 today — a true milestone. So in his honor … and because if we didn’t laugh, we’d cry … enjoy some old age humor. Here’s to 80 more, Trevor!


Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked, “How old was your husband?”

“98,” she replied. “Two years older than me.”

“So you’re 96,” the undertaker commented.

She responded, ‘Hardly worth going home, eh?”


A reporter interviewed a 104-year-old woman. “And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?”

“No peer pressure.”


The nice thing about being senile is you can hide your own Easter eggs.


I’ve sure gotten old! I’ve had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I’m half blind, can’t hear anything quieter than a jet engine, I take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. I have bouts with dementia and poor circulation – hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Can’t remember if I’m 85 or 92. I’ve lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my driver’s license.


I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor’s permission to join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.


My memory’s not as sharp as it used to be. Also, my memory’s not as sharp as it used to be.


Know how to prevent sagging? Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.


It’s scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.



Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Got any old age funnies?

    When my mom was in her sixties, I had stopped by her condo one day. She said, “I found a new way to dust my house.”
    I asked her what it was, and she demonstrated her answer–she took off her glasses.
