20 year old bride
« on: June 01, 2006, 08:29:52 PM »
An 80-year-old man went to his doctor for his quarterly check-up.

The doctor asked him how he was feeling and the 80-year-old said
"Things are great and I've never felt better. I now have a 20
year-old bride who is pregnant with my child. So what do you think
about that?"

The doctor considered his question for a minute and then began.
"I have an older friend, much like you, who is an avid hunter and
never misses a season. One day when he was setting off hunting, he
was in a bit of a hurry and accidentally picked up his walking cane
instead of his gun. As he neared a lake he came across a very large
male beaver sitting at the water's edge. He realised he'd left his gun
 at home and so couldn't shoot themagnificent creature but out of habit
he raised his cane, aimed it at the animal as if it were his favourite hunting
rifle and went 'bang, bang'. Miraculously, two shots rang out and the beaver fell
over dead.

Now, what do you think of that?" asked the doctor.

The 80-year-old said, "If you ask me, I'd say somebody else pumped
a couple of rounds into that beaver."

The doctor replied, "My point exactly".

A mind is like a parachute - it works best when open.
