MIRROR, MIRROR, ON THE WALL, WHO’S THE GRUMPIEST ONE OF ALL?


            Sure, men & women both age, but for some reason women seem to stay happier.  More of them look like this:


than this:

It seems to me (of course, I’m a woman) that old men get more like this:





They probably all have the same blood type—B negative.
They’ve even made some movies about it:


These guys (below) should have an optirectomy.
That’s a surgery that severs the cord
connecting the optic nerve to the rectum.
Hopefully, that will put a stop to them
having such a shitty outlook on life!




My son found this for me.  My elementary school principal used to show it at assemblies in the 40's:


                                      We women understand this, because it happens to us, too:



At least we TRY to do better:


            How about a joke stolen from fresh off the internet?

            While out for an afternoon drive, an elderly couple stop at a coffee shop for lunch.  Back on the road afterwards, the woman realizes she’s left her glasses there & asks her husband to go back.  By then they’ve traveled quite a distance & have to go even further before they can find a place to turn around.  The old man moans & complains all the way back.  He calls his wife every name he can think of.  When they finally get back to the coffee shop & she gets out to get her glasses, he yells at her, “And while you’re there, stupid, you might as well get my wallet, too!”

Watch this instructional video (maybe the beer helped):

Remember, life is as funny as things get----fishducky

  1. I LOVE this :) The kids really enjoyed "The Sunshine Makers."
    My favorite comic had the line: "He's worse than critical. He's downright insulting." I couldn't stop laughing for a long time after reading that one :0)

  2. YOu really have a talent for this funny stuff, this one is great. My favorite was the optirectomy, my husband definitely needs that on both eyes. Thanks for making me laugh so early on a Monday morning.

    1. Thanks--I wonder if Medicare covers that? I think it's much more important than Viagra!

  3. Hehe ... good one Fran - I think old men are probably grumpier than old women (no scientific info available - just an opinion)

    ... mind you, someone told that grumpiness in old age is a 'right' something that has been earned - like farting in public and everyone just shakes their heads and sighs ... what do you think?

  4. I'm still LAUGHING about optirectomy. A positive outlook goes a long way. I'm positive I'm looking forward to living a long time as a crazy, happy old lady. It's one way I can get even with my kids. Ha!

  8. Fran,
    I really like that video i can see why your principal made you watch that at assemblies because it probably made kids bright like you.

  9. From MELYNDA:

    Well if that wasn't a load of truth I don't know what is! I had to giggle considering my father in laws this last week. :)

  11. Why did the soccer ball quit?

    He was tired of getting kicked around.

    That's it. That's the only clean joke I can remember right now. And it has nothing to do with being grumpy. :)
