    Tommy, 85, married Jenny, a lovely 25 year old.

    Since her new husband is so old, Jenny decides that
    after their wedding she and Tommy should have separate bedrooms, because she is concerned that her new but aged husband may over-exert himself if they spend the entire night together.


    After the wedding festivities Jenny prepares herself for bed and the expected knock on the door. Sure enough the knock comes, the door opens and there is Tommy, her 85 year old groom, ready for action. They unite as one. All goes well, Tommy takes leave of his bride, and she prepares to go to sleep.


    After a few minutes, Jenny hears another knock on her bedroom door, and it's Tommy, Again he is ready for more 'action'. Somewhat surprised, Jenny consents for more coupling. When the newlyweds are done, Tommy kisses his bride, bids her a fond good night and leaves.


    She is set to go to sleep again, but, aha, you guessed it - Tommy is back again, rapping on the door and is as fresh as a 25-year-old, ready for more 'action'. And, once more they enjoy each other.

    But as Tommy gets set to leave again, his young bride says to him, 'I am thoroughly impressed that at your age you can perform so well and so often. I have been with guys less than a third of your age who were only good once. You are truly a great lover, Tommy.'
    Tommy, somewhat embarrassed, turns to Jenny and says: 'You mean I was here already?'

    The moral of the story:

    Don't be afraid of getting old, Alzheimer's has its advantages.

    Alzheimer's jokes are sad. It doesn't work that way. Let's do cancer next.

    If we don't laugh at ourselves, our foibles and mistakes, our embarrassments and hurts, our eccentricities and fears, then there's not much left but tears. Life can be a serious matter, but *we* don't have to be.

    Rarely do jokes, stories, gimmicks like this intend hurt or harm. Everyone knows about the issue of alzheimers, none of us feel less than an amount of fear of it being in our own lives if we have no firsthand knowledge of it.

    This particular topic was very generic and so obviously not intended to offend. Let's not focus on minimizing the things we can talk about, but on expanding the acceptance of what each of us has to say, even if it's close to home or personally unpleasant.

    My husband, who does not have Alzheimers, but does have a really bad short term memory, jokes about himself like this. He frequently "loves" new dishes that he can not remember ever having before, though I have made them before. For him. He says he's just like a baby duck, every day is new!

    bodie358 and Jan in VA, I so whole heartily agree with both of you. My mother is 91 and in a nursing home. She is the one that tells the 'old foggie' jokes and the forgetful tales. She says "if you can't chuckle about it all then you might as well crawl into a hole and forget all about life except "I'm to crippled to crawl." Her words.

    I would also like to add that Alzheimers is a terrible disease, and is not funny. However, most of us lose the elasticity of our memory as we age. And that, while frustrating, can be funny. Every joke about aging is not a joke at the expense of those with Alzheimers. I had to read the joke twice before I noticed the last line. It's funny without it.

    To anyone dealing with this terrible disease, jokes like this may be hurtful. But for all of us who are merely aging with bizarre side effects, it gives us a chance to laugh at ourselves. I hope no one is offended or hurt....

    I thought it was funny. We have family who have Alzheimer's and I didn't find it offensive at all. I am 45 and joke with my kids about how I am getting old and losing my memory and hearing.

    I enjoyed the joke. It made me laugh. I am 73 years old, sole caregiver to dh who has been battling cancer for 10 years, so if I can read something to laugh about I consider it a blessing. I am also getting forgetful but dh and I laugh about it. Can't fight it so I just go with it. Thanks for the laugh.

    Laughter cures. Laugh whenever you can and don't lose your sense of humor.

    The part I found amusing (and unlikely) was the old guy ready - and able - for action at 85 - multiple times.

    Maybe the moral of the story - mind over body????


    There are a lot of things that start to malfunction in our bodies and minds - one may as well try to find the humor in as many of the situations as possible.

    I also feel that no offense was intended.

    (Although I can understand how one could feel sensitive about it - think how many men with ED would/could feel "sensitive" about this joke?)

    no more so than women with sagging parts, thinning hair and hair on their chins. aging is part of life. it's the price we pay for not dying. sadly, the longer we live the better the chances for things to go wrong. we can laugh or we can cry.

    i have a siezure (and therefore, memory) disorder and plenty of times i don't know if i've been here already myself. i will not spend the rest of my life or let my family spend the rest of my life weeping for me. i know what's funny, even when it's me.

    This is funny. I laughed but it doesn't mean I think Alzheimer's is funny, OBVIOUSLY! We deal with the tragedy of our human situation through laughter. Or we'd all go nuts. :shock: :lol:
