An 86-year-old man went to his
doctor for his annual check-up ...
The doctor asked him how he was
feeling, and the 86-year-old said, "Things are great and I've never felt
better. I now have a 20-year-old bride who is pregnant with my child! So
what do you think about that Doc?"
The doctor considered his
question for a minute and then began to tell a story. "I have an older
friend, much like you, who is an avid hunter and never misses a season."
"One day he was setting off
to go hunting. In a bit of a hurry, he accidentally picked up his walking
cane instead of his gun.... As he neared the lake, he came across a very
large male beaver sitting at the water's edge."
"He realized he'd left his gun at home and so he couldn't shoot the magnificent creature. Out of habit he raised his cane, aimed it at the animal as if it were his favorite hunting rifle, and went 'bang, bang'"....
"Miraculously, two shots rang out and the beaver fell over dead.
Now, what do you think of that?" asked the doctor.
The 86-year-old said, "Logic would strongly suggest that somebody else pumped a couple of rounds into that beaver."
The doctor replied, "My point exactly."
