Some Old Geezer jokes

A reporter was interviewing a 104 year-old woman: “And what do you think is
the best thing about being 104?” the reporter asked.
She simply replied, “No peer pressure.”

An accident really uncanny,
Befell an unfortunate granny.
She sat down in a chair
While her false teeth were there,
And bit herself right in the fanny!

The Senate is investigating deceptive sweepstakes practices. These companies
target the elderly and make them think they will receive a bunch of money,
but in reality they never see any of it.
The most common of these scams is called Social Security.

Three ladies were discussing the travails of getting older. One said,
“Sometimes I catch myself with a jar of mayonnaise in my hand, while
standing in front of the refrigerator, and I can’t remember whether I need
to put it away, or start making a sandwich.”
The second lady chimed in with, “Yes, sometimes I find myself on the landing
of the stairs and can’t remember whether I was on my way up or on my way
down.”
The third one responded, ” Well, ladies, I’m glad I don’t have that problem.
Knock on wood,” as she rapped her knuckles on the table, and then said,
“That must be the door, I’ll get it!”

Famous quotes about aging:

  • “He is alive, but only in the sense that he can’t be legally buried.”
    Geoffrey Madan
  • “When I was a boy, the Dead Sea was only sick.” George Burns
  • “I do wish I could tell you my age but it’s impossible. It keeps changing
    all the time.” Greer Garson.
  • “Another good thing about being poor is that when you are seventy your
    children will not have declared you legally insane in order to gain control
    of your estate.” Woody Allen
  • “The secret of longevity is to keep breathing.” Sophie Tucker
  • “At my age I do what Mark Twain did. I get my daily paper, look at the
    obituaries page and if I’m not there I carry on as usual.” Patrick Moore.
  • “At my age flowers scare me.” George Burns.
  • “My grandmother was a very tough woman. She buried three husbands and two
    of them were just napping.” Rita Rudner
  • “You know you’re getting old when you stoop to tie your shoelaces and wonder
    what else you could do while you’re down there.” George Burns.
  • “I don’t feel old. I don’t feel anything until noon. Then it’s time for my
    nap.” Bob Hope

  2. Jan Marie says:

    Cute – the one about the granny reminded me of one I learned many years ago when I was just a kid. It went like this:

    There was a man from Black Heath
    Who sat on his set of false teeth
    Said he with a start
    “Oh Lord, bless my heart,
    I’ve bitten myself underneath.”

  3. Jan Marie says:

    Oops – the first line of that limerick should say:

    There once was a man from Black Heath…
