Are you getting older?

I bought some of that "Gingkori" that's supposed to improve your
memory, but I forgot where I put it.

You don't know real embarrassment until your hip sets off a metal

You know you're getting older when you bend over in the morning to tie
your shoes and realize you didn't take them off the night before.

The biggest disadvantage of old age is that you can't outgrow it.

The most frustrating thing about getting older is that every time you
see an expensive antique, you remember one just like it you once threw

She's getting crows feet around her eyes. And I'll tell you, that crow
has big feet!

Let's face it, traveling just isn't as much fun when all the historical
sites are younger than you are.

You know you're past your prime when every time you suck in your gut,
your ankles swell.

I don't like to do things now that I did 20 years ago--like look in
the mirror.

I'm middle-age, middle-class, and middle-of-the-road. I feel like that
white stuff in the middle of an Oreo.

Heck, I don't feel a day older than I did a hundred years ago.

Sometimes I feel old enough to be my own father.

I'm suffering from Mallzheimer's disease. I go to the mall and forget
where I parked my car.

You know you're past your prime when you start getting air-guitar

Age always corresponds inversely to the size of your multivitamin.

My neighbors have been married for 60 years. They look like identical
twins. One of them wears a dress. I don't know which one.

"Gorilla In A Tree"

A man walked into his backyard in a residential neighborhood one morning. He
saw a 600 pound Gorilla sitting in his tree.He telephoned an emergency Gorilla
Removal Service, and shortly a technician arrived with a stick, a pair of hand
cuffs, a tiny Chihuahua, and a shotgun.

"Now listen carefully", he told the homeowner. "I am going to climb the tree,
and poke the Gorilla with this stick, until he falls to the ground. My trained
Chihuahua will go right for the Gorilla's testicles, and when the Gorilla
instinctively crosses his hands over his testicles to protect himself, you slap
on the hand cuffs without delay."

"OK... got it," the homeowner replied. "But what is the shotgun for?"

The technician said, "If I should fall out of the tree before the Gorilla...
SHOOT the Chihuahua!!!"

Some Things You Just Can't Explain

A farmer is sitting in the neighborhood bar getting soused.
A man comes in and asks him, "Hey, why are you sitting here
on this beautiful day getting drunk?"

Farmer: Some things you just can't explain.

Man: So what happened that's so horrible?

Farmer: Well, today I was sitting by my cow milking her.
Just as I got the bucket about full, she took her left leg and
kicked over the bucket.

Man: Ok, but that's not so bad.

Farmer: Some things you just can't explain.

Man: So what happened then?

Farmer: I took her left leg and tied it to the post on the left.

Man: and then?

Farmer: Well, I sat back down and continued to milk her.
Just as I got the bucket about full, she took her right leg and
kicked over the bucket.

Man: Again?

Farmer: Some things you just can't explain.

Man: So, what did you do then?

Farmer: I took her right leg this time and tied it to
the post on the right.

Man: and then?

Farmer: Well, I sat back down and began milking her again.
Just as got the bucket about full, the stupid cow knocked over
the bucket with her tail.

Man: Hmmm...

Farmer: Some things you just can't explain.

Man: So, what did you do?

Farmer: Well, I didn't have any more rope, so I took
off my belt and tied her tail to the rafter. In that moment,
my pants fell down and my wife walked in...
Some things you just can't explain.

Bill Clinton, in the country

Bill Clinton and his driver were cruising along a country road,
when they hit a pig, killing it instantly.
Bill told his driver to the farm house and
explain to the owners what had happened.
About an hour later Bill sees his driver staggering back to the car
with a bottle of wine in one hand, a cigar in the other
and his clothes all ripped and torn.
"What happened to you?," asked Bill.
"Well, the Farmer gave me the wine,
his wife gave me the cigar and his 19 year old daughter
made mad passionate love to me," said the driver.
"My God, what did you tell them?", asks Clinton. The driver replies,
"I'm Bill Clinton's driver, and I just killed the pig."
