    Fifty Plus Joke

    You may have heard this one:

    An 80-year old man goes to the doctor for a checkup.

    The doctor is amazed at what good shape the guy is in and asks,"How
    do you stay in such great physical condition?"

    I'm a cyclist," says the old guy, "and that's why I'm in such good
    shape. I'm up well before daylight and out and ride my bicycle."

    " Well," says the doctor, "I'm sure that helps, but there's got to be
    more to it. How old was your dad when he died?"

    "Who said my dad's dead?"

    The doctor is amazed. "You mean you're 80 years old and your dad's
    still alive. How old is he?"

    "He's 100 years old," says the old cyclist. "In fact he rode with me
    this morning, and that's why he's still alive . . . he's a cyclist
    too."

    "Well," the doctor says, "that's great, but I'm sure there's more to
    it than that. How about your dad's dad? How old was he when he died?"

    "Who said my grandpa's dead?"

    Stunned, the doctor asks, "You mean you're 80 years old and your
    grandfather' S still living! Incredible,how old is he?"

    "He's 118 years old," says the old cyclist.

    The doctor is getting frustrated at this point, "So, I guess he went
    bike riding with you this morning too?"

    "No. Grandpa couldn't go this morning because he's getting married
    today."

    At this point the doctor is close to losing it.

    "Getting married!! Why would a 118 year-old guy want to get married?"

    "Who said he wanted to?"

    I heard the same joke several years ago as a golfing joke. Here's another that works either as a golf joke or a cycling joke:

    A group of riders came upon an elderly gentleman riding by himself. They struck up a conversation and he asked if he could ride along with them. They said it would be fine and then they asked him if he normally rode alone and he replied "No, usually I ride with my wife and another couple but my poor wife died."

    One of the riders said " That's terrible, but what about your other friends? Why aren't you riding with them?"

    "Because" he said, "They're at the funeral!"
