And Then, An Old One….

One of the beauties of getting very old is that when you say, "Have you heard the old joke about…." you're usually talking about a very, very old joke. Possibly so old it's been forgotten and comes out like new.

I'm not over confident this will happen with this old joke but you never know.

Right, where to start. Got it!! Right there at the beginning….

An old guy was standing at the bar of his local pub, nursing his drink, when he chanced to glance down and saw the Landlords big old dog, lying on the floor behind the bar, curled up on himself licking his private bits. As dogs are wont to do don't ya know.

The old boy smiles wistfully and says, to no one in particular, "Wish I could do that."
The Landlord looks down at his dog, looks across at the old boy and says, "Give him a biscuit and he might let you."

Sorry. Hope you'd finished eating.

Quote; Robert Benchley.

"A dog teaches a young boy fidelity, perseverance, and the importance of turning round three times before lying down."
