Teh Funny

My Buddy Ed In Florida sends the following along...
Jacob, age 92, and Rebecca, age 89, living in Miami, are all excited about their decision to get married. They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding, and on the way they pass a drugstore.  Jacob suggests they go in.  Jacob addresses the man behind the counter:  "Are you the owner?"
The pharmacist answers, "Yes."
Jacob: "We're about to get married. Do you sell heart medication?"
Pharmacist: "Of course, we do."
Jacob: "How about medicine for circulation?"
Pharmacist: "All kinds."
Jacob: "Medicine for rheumatism?"
Pharmacist: "Definitely."
Jacob: "How about suppositories?"
Pharmacist: "You bet!"
Jacob: "Medicine for memory problems, arthritis and Alzheimer's?"
Pharmacist: "Yes, a large variety. The works."
Jacob: "What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for Parkinson's disease?"
Pharmacist: "Absolutely."
Jacob: "Everything for heartburn and indigestion?"
Pharmacist: "We sure do."
Jacob: "You sell wheelchairs and walkers and canes?"
Pharmacist: "All speeds and sizes."
Jacob: "Adult diapers?"
Pharmacist: "Sure."
Jacob: "We'd like to use this store as our Bridal Registry."
Heh.  There's a classic example of the wisdom one acquires in one's old age.  Except, perhaps, for the marriage bit.

    1. I liked the pool joke the best. But then... I WOULD.

    2. The subterfuge, it is strong!

    Sadly, I don't know what a Bridal Registry is, as we got married and divorced in Reno.

    "I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die..."

    1. Sadly, I DO know what a Bridal Registry is.

    2. But I still have a nice butter dish from that sad affair.

      Hey! A butter dish makes a fine place to put your ashes when the time comes.

    4. Mine ain't NEAR big enough. I've seen the size of urns that hold remains... you could put five butter dishes in there.

  4. My mother got married for the second time to an old friend. The minister said he normally counsels couples when they come to him to get married. He figured that with over 109 years of marriage to other partners, they could go it alone.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
