The young man fidgeted and furtively stammered "Er... Excuse me... But... But have you got anything or can you suggest anything for an embarrassing problem that I have?"

The old lady looked at the very nervous young man and calmly asked,  "And what exactly is your problem...young man?" The young man became silent and was goaded into answering

" see I am sexually aroused perpetually and have sex on my mind all the time... what can you give me for it?"

The old woman glared at him for what seemed like ages and finally said "Please wait here young man I'm just going to have a word with my sister... I'll be right back!" She was gone awhile and returned with her sister and excitedly whispered to him

Grandpa at the Zoo

A grandfather took his young grandson to the zoo expecting to see all the varied animals held within. Unfortunately, due to quarantine most of the enclosures were empty. So they walked from one empty enclosure to another and grandfather was becoming quite despondent when they both came upon an enclosure and housed within was a small hairy little dog looking all forlorn and lonely.

The young grandson bleated out "Look Gramps!'s a little doggie!" Grandfather tried to make best of a bad situation and said "Why it is...isn't it lovely?"

The grandson studied the dog intently and then asked " What type of dog is it...Gramps ? " Grandfather pondered for a while and then responded " I think it's a Shih Tzu son"

The youngster quickly retorted "I KNOW THAT GRAMPS !....BUT WHAT KIND OF DOG IS IT?"

The Oil Rig

A kind old man who led a good and fulfilling life peacefully died of old age. God appeared by his bed to comfort and allay any fears that the old boy might have before he was welcomed into heaven due to the wonderful deeds that the old man had orchestrated in his life helping others.

God asked if there was anything that he could do for him as a reward and final gesture before they were on their way? The old soul thought for a minute and asked "Absolutely anything...?" God replied "Anything you desire and it will happen my son".

The old boy carried on "Well my I led a very poor and simple life...I never ventured far and have never had a holiday so I have never seen the sea so as my final wish I would like to walk on a beach and see the sea please?"  God instantly transported them to a beautiful deserted sun kissed beach and calm blue sea.

As they strolled along the old man glanced out to the horizon and spotted an oil platform way out at sea. He inquired as to what it was and God replied "That my friend is an oil rig where man drills into the ocean bed and pumps oil back to use as fuel". The old man said that he had never seen one and asked if they could get closer? God replied, "Of course my son" and proceeded to wade into the water accompanied by the old boy.

They had waded out about ten feet and the water was around the old chap's waist whilst it only lapped around God's ankles...further out they went and the old timer had to swim vigorously and still the water only lapped around God's ankles. Another few feet and struggling even more the old guy finally conceded and panting he said "I...I'm sorry my lord but I can't go any further...I can't perform miracles like you...please forgive me...?"

God replied "I'm so sorry my son...I thought that you wanted to have a swim?...Please step up on this PIPE LINE behind me?"

She exclaimed " They've taken everything...the car radio, the steering wheel, the dash, the gear stick, they've even stolen the brake pedal, clutch and accelerator !

The officer was lost for words when after awhile the old woman's daughter came on the line and apologized saying her mother had climbed into the back seat by mistake !

Great Curry!

A group of old friends were celebrating the birthday of one of their colleagues by all meeting at the newest curry restaurant in their town to celebrate the occasion. Each in turn were well and truly into their favourite curry and all were having a marvellous time when as custom would have it the attending waiter came over and cordially asked if everyone was enjoying their meals.

He finally reached the birthday boy and inquired "Curry okay....sir"

The birthday boy thought for a moment and then responded,

"'s not really my thing but put me down for one verse of 'My Way' by Frank Sinatra!"

War Veterans?

To which the approaching old boy replied "Dog Crap !...10 yards back!"

An old lady was walking home late one night when suddenly out from the shadows jumped a dishevelled young man who demanded that she hand over all her money or else !

"B...B... But I haven't got any money on me...I never carry case I get mugged " stammered the frightened old woman.

Not believing her at all...the young mugger stated that he was going to search her and started at her shoulders
...along her arms
   ...around her chest
      ...and finally under her skirt!
He thoroughly frisked the poor old soul and had to accept defeat and started to walk away feeling frustrated.

Just then, the old dear called out " Oh...don't stop please...I..I can write you a cheque ? " 

Naval Acronyms

The queen finally arrived and as she greeted the British captain she asked him what do the initials H.M.S on his captains hat stood for ? The captain proudly replied " Her Majesty's Service....Ma'am "...moving along she asked the same question of the American captain what did U.S.N on his hat stood for ? to which he replied " United States Navy...Ma'am "

She eventually looked at the little old wrinkled Italian captain and looking at the initials on his hat asked 

" What pray does I.M.B stand for ? " To which the little old wizened chap proudly replied " It'sa Ma Boat....! "

Two Nuns and Vampire Bats

An elderly mother superior and her young novice nun were driving home late at night in darkest Transylvania when suddenly their car was surrounded by a colony of vampire bats. Immediately the young novice nun became very frightened and agitated and looked to the mother superior for divine guidance. The mother superior sensed her novice's concerns and calmly said 

" Don't worry my dear....just wind down your window and show them your cross "

To which the novice did as she was asked and shouted out " Piss off!.. you little runts!"

(I believe mother superior is saying a few Hail Mary's for this one)

Magic Powder

During the days of the old wild west two soldiers whilst out on patrol got lost and found themselves in the searing heat of the desert and eventually ran out of water. Parched and exhausted they crawled their way into an Indian village where upon they were captured, tied to the totem pole.

They were about to be interrogated by the chief who could just about speak pigeon English but due to their throats being so dry couldn't utter a word. On realizing this, the chief granted them water to quench their thirst and then proceeded with his interrogation.

But still they couldn't utter a word so the chief summoned his trusted old witch doctor and commanded him " Make speak !....have many questions ? "

The soldiers looked on still unable to speak as the wizened old witch doctor reached into a pouch tied around his waist, pulled out some white powder and dusted it on both men's mouths. Miraculously and slowly the soldiers started to mutter some words and were amazed.

When eventually they had recovered enough all they wanted to know was what the mysterious miracle powder was ?...

" Yes...we will answer all questions but first we have to know what was that white powder sprinkled on us ? they asked of the chief. " The chief looked at his old witch doctor  and commanded " Tell...! "

The wise old witch doctor calmly said " IT....TALKUM POWDER ! " 

Ghostly Experiences for the Aged?

A seminar was held at a local town hall one day and was attended by quite a few people who were eager to share their experiences with unearthly phenomena that couldn't be explained. So the discussion got under way with UFO sightings to ghostly experiences etc. Each speaker stood up in turn to tell their story however far fetched and most experiences featured mainly ghosts.

As the guest speaker chose any individual who put their hand up to tell their story a little old man who was rather deaf was chosen and asked for his experience with a ghost? The meek old chap nervously stood up and stammered and hesitated as he was asked

"Come...come old friend don't be afraid...share with us your experience with a ghost?" The little old man looked around and looked at everyone turned up his hearing aid and stammered "...G..Ghost...I thought you said GOAT!"

Icy Solution?

An old Grand Dad was so keen on fishing that whatever the weather he would still go fishing especially on the most harshest of cold days thinking that the temperature would keep other anglers away. On one particular freezing morning he visited his favorite pond which was completely iced over and deserted...he carefully slid across the icy pond and instinctively he proceeded to chip away the ice to make a little hole into which he could drop in his hook and line.

When he had everything to his satisfaction he opened a little box and placed a now frozen worm on the end of his hook and dropped it in the hole and waited...and waited...and waited. After what seemed like a couple of hours he noticed a little boy straddle across the ice near to him armed with only a stick...a piece of string and a bent safety pin.

He also proceeded to make his ice hole and with his back turned to the now curious old boy he hooked his worm and it popped in the hole....within a few minutes he had a bite and pulled up a fat wriggling fish much to the astonishment of the now transfixed old codger. When the little boy unhooked his catch he turned away again and put another worm on the end of his line and repeated everything again by catching another fish!

The old chap couldn't contain himself anymore and asked the little boy what his secret was...the young lad felt sorry for the old pensioner and mumbled through pursed lips "Roo Raf Roo Reep Ra Rurms Rarm!"

Thinking he had heard wrongly the old boy asked "What did you say?" ...again the lad repeated "Roo Raf Roo Reep Ra Rurms Rarm!" exasperated the old codger bellowed "YOU WHAT LADDIE!... OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND SPEAK PROPERLY!"

The young lad opened his mouth and dribbled copious amount of spit mixed with slimy wriggling worms and shouted  "YOU HAVE TO KEEP YOUR WORMS WARM!"

The Englishman grits his teeth and says "Not on your bloody Nellie...old chap!" as he's taken away.

"Hmmm...mighty rough skin...make strong canoe...take away and skin...make last request now?" The Scotsman grunts "Up yours Jimmy!" and he is taken away.

Finally he walks up to the old Irishman who is grinning to himself and rips open his shirt as he proceeds to rub his wrinkled chest and says " Hmmm...mighty stretchy skin...make big canoe...take away and skin...make last request now ? " The old Irishman grins and says "To be sure chief...could I please have a fork?"

The chief as well as the rest of the tribe are perplexed as a fork is found and handed to the old Irishman who takes it and proceeds to stab himself all over his chest shouting " You're not making a frigging canoe outta ME!"

Grand dad looked on as his grandson became quite agitated whereby the little boy ran off suddenly and quickly returned holding a can of his mother's hairspray. He stretched out the worm and proceeded to copiously spray the little worm until it was completely rigid, then he gently pushed it back into it's hole.

An old boy went to his local optometrist for his first eye test due to his failing eyesight. The optometrist said that all of his test equipment was locked away and that he couldn't find the key ! But he could still carry out the appointment using the old method if that was acceptable.

The old boy nodded and so the optometrist sat him down and asked him to place his right hand over his right eye and read the test screen with his left eye. The confused old boy who couldn't distinguish his left from his right, placed his right hand over his left eye proceeded to try and read the test screen

" right hand over the right eye.... " Noticing that the old boy was becoming agitated the optometrist found a large paper bag and cut out an eyehole and placed it over the now nervous patient over his right eye.

The old boy did his test and when he had finished the bag was turned so that it was now over his left eye and asked to read again. When that also finished the optometrist cut two eyeholes so that he could complete the examination. He then heard the old boy whimpering under the bag so he inquired as to why?

The old boy stammered "I...I..really fancied a pair like Elton John !"

An elderly chap was in hospital to have a delicate operation on his nether regions. After the procedure which went smoothly, the old chap was put in a private room to completely recover from the general anesthetic.

He hadn't fully come around and was woozy and slurring when he noticed a young and pretty nurse in the room attending to him. When she neared him he grabbed her hand and asked " Are my testicles black? "

The young nurse became quite indignant and upset that he would ask such an impertinent question of her and walked out in a huff. When she returned later to check on him he persisted on still asking her " Nurse, are my testicles black? "

The young nurse finally gave in to his request and slowly lifted the bed sheet and was pleasantly surprised to see that he was very well endowed and examined him with both hands, the old boy became startled and finally said to her "That's very kind and sweet my dear but can you still answer my question ARE MY TEST RESULTS BACK?"
