It's the Groaner of the Week!!!!!!!

Kent McKamy of kentsusdrive sent this along. It isn't really a groaner but I roared with laughter -- and groaned a tad, too -- when I read it and I thought y'all might get a good laugh too!!!!

An 80-year-old Italian man goes to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor is amazed at what good shape the guy is in and asks, "How do you stay in such great physical condition?"

"I’m Italian and I am a golfer" says the old guy, "and that’s why I'm in such good shape. I'm up well before daylight and out golfing up and down the fairways. I have a glass of vino, and all is well."

"Well . . ." says the doctor, "I'm sure that helps, but there’s got to be more to it. How old was your father when he died?"

"Who said my father's dead?"

The doctor is amazed. "You mean you're 80 years old and your father’s still alive. How old is he?"

"He’s 100 years old!" says the Old Italian golfer. "In fact he golfed with me this morning, and then we went to the topless beach for a walk and had a little vino and that's why he's still alive. He's Italian and he’s a golfer, too."

"Well, that's great!" the doctor says, "But I'm sure there’s more to it than that. How about your father’s father? How old was he when he died?"

"Who said my Nonno's dead?"

Stunned, the doctor asks, "You mean you're 80 years old and your grandfather's still living! Incredible, how old is he?"

"He’s 118 years old,' says the old Italian golfer."

The doctor is getting frustrated at this point, "Soooo, I guess he went golfing with you this morning too?"

"No, Nonno couldn't go this morning because he's getting married today."

At this point the doctor is close to losing it. "Getting married!! Why would a 118-year-old guy want to get married?"

"Who said he wanted to???"

Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!

    Kay, disregard my email to you. I discovered I cannot comment using OPEN ID, but I can using NAME/URL or ANONYMOUS.

    Loved the joke. Made me chuckle.

  5. That's just what I needed. Lovely laughter for sure.

  6. That joke reminds me of an interview I saw with George Burns when he was 101. The reporter said:

    Reporter: "So you have a cocktail every day?"

    Burns: "Yes, I have two Martinis every evening".

    Reporter: "And you still smoke your cigars"?

    Burns: "Yes, I smoke two cigars a day."

    Reporter: "So what does your doctor say about that?"

    Burns: "My doctor's dead!"

  7. Those Italians! They are quite the guys…

    Hahaha that's just hilarious!

  9. Yeah, to hear Italians tell it, they are the berries. I should know, since I'm married to one!
