Thread Name: BS: 'you're so old...' jokes needed for 60th
Subject: RE: BS: 'you're so old...' jokes needed for 60th
I am almost 60. What's funny about that? I have heard all the bathroom jokes; all the sex jokes; all the 'failing body part' jokes, etc. I have responded to about 120 emergency scenes this year. Helped save a half dozen lives this year. Two kids I took out of a fire years back will never think of me as being 'old'. I was about 52 at the time. They just remember me as the firefighter who took them out of a dangerous place.
I dislike humor that targets age like it's something to be ashamed of. The jokes are seldom funny, and I am not ashamed to be 59. If I live that long, I won't be ashamed to be 70 either. Mileage may vary; this is just my opinion.
