I feel I should be pimping something -- my scintillating self and my highly anticipated releases in particular **cough** -- but we all know how good I am at that. So in lieu of high-powered pimpage, I decided to post another Joke from Jerr, one of my friends in low places.
The Old Man and the Beaver
An 86-year-old man went to his doctor for his quarterly check-up. The doctor asked him how he was feeling, and the old man said,"Things are great! I've never felt better. I now have a twenty-year-old bride who's pregnant with my child." He beamed proudly. "So what do you think of that, Doc?"
The doctor considered his question for a minute and then began telling a story:
"I have an older friend, much like you, who's an avid outdoorsman and never misses an opportunity to go hunting. One day he was preoccupied as he set off for the woods, so he accidentally picked up his walking cane instead of his rifle.
"As he neared a lake, he came across a very large beaver sitting on its dam at the water's edge. Although the beaver had a beautiful, thick, gleaming pelt, my friend realized he couldn't bag the creature because he'd left his gun at home.
"Still, he figured he could enjoy a fantasy. He raised his cane, aimed it at the animal, and thought, bang, bang! Miraculously, two shots rang out at the same time, and the beaver fell over dead."
His story concluded, the doctor then asked his patient, "Now, what do you make of that?
The 86-year-old said, "Well, logic would strongly suggest that somebody else in the vicinity pumped a couple of rounds into that beaver."
The doctor replied, "My point exactly."
