Funny Short Senior Dating Joke - Number Five

Updated on March 13, 2013

I can't stop loving you

National Humor Month Funny Short Joke Number Five

It’s hard to believe but this is number five funny short joke already. However, I’m game to continue if you are. Especially since we all need more laughter than usual these days. I was feeling down after attending a friend's funeral, but then I realized how relieved I always am when someone is delivering a eulogy . . . and I realize I can hear it.

Funny Joke Number Five

Bradford, a widower, and Angelita, a widow, meet in a senior citizen retirement village. They start to hang out together and find they share each other's values, enjoy the same type of books and movies, and find pleasure in each other's company. After a few months, Bradford asks Angelita to marry him. She appears hesitant at first and decides to ask him a few questions.

"You don't have to answer, Brad, if you think I'm out of line, but what is the state of your health?"

"Well, I'm not getting any younger, Angie, but I don't have any major health problems. I’m in pretty good shape and can still enjoy the finer things of life."

"I don't want to pry into your affairs, Brad, but I do have to protect myself. How are you fixed financially?"

“Well, Angie, I am not wealthy, but I am comfortable due to a healthy pension and a wise selection of investments. So you do not have to worry about me having to borrow money from you.”

Angie blushes, and finally gets up enough nerve to ask Brad, "And how is your sex life?”

"Infrequently," Brad declares.

Angie ponders this for a moment or so and then asks . . . "And is that one word or two?”

      You hit the nail on the head, Sue. Aging at times can be funny, but as Bette Davis so wisely said, "Old Age Ain't for Sissies." (The title of one of my hubs). She knew what she was talking about.

      You are so right, Patricia, Charlie knew the importance of laughter. And so do you and I. Delighted to know that your sister has moved nearer to you so you can be together more often to laugh. I know just what you mean when you refer to 'you had to be there' humor. Happens to me ALL the time! Thanks for the comment and the Angels.

      Love it....and Charlie had it right, didn't he??? I just spent the 2 days with my sister who has just moved nearer to me. We laughed and laughed and laughed. It was one of those 'you had to be there' to get the humor kind of thing too.

      Thanks for sharing this drbj...

      Sending Angels your way :) ps

      Thanks for appreciating this 'zinger,' Kelly. I call it my philosophical joke because usually one has to ponder over it for a moment or two to get the full meaning. Love that expression, but don't believe for a minute that you're not the sharpest tool in the shed. You m'luv, could put the machete to shame. Trust me.

      Hi, Paradise. If Brad didn't have enough sense to answer Angie with the statement, "Two words," then he doesn't deserve her. Right?

      Laughter does make the world go 'round, doesn't it, Alastar? So those names appear familiar to you, my friend. Can't imagine who in the world you are thinking of. Heh, heh. Thanks for the visit.

      Oh, amillar, fortunately for Angie, his name was Brad. But how very clever you are! Course I already knew that.

      So happy to crack you up, CM. Makes me feel it's all worthwhile. Especially if I can make you laugh on such a grey and chilly afternoon. It's a little cooler here, too, down from the 80s to 78 degrees. Heh, heh.

      Thank you, Angelia, you're very kind.

      I find, m'dear, if I am able to induce smiles then I can't help but be smiling myself. It's contagious. So you are reminded of the pig's tail? Can't imagine why you see a connection (snicker, snicker).

      Doc,

      My sympathies on the loss of your friend. :(

      I'm also happy that you're managing to still induce smiles even if you're not necessarily feeling like wearing one yourself.

      I read this one and couldn't help being reminded of the pig's tail. (Wink!)
