    Sounds gruesome when you think about it.

    Opal is the one a little dense this time.

    Sometimes there is difference between what males think is funny and what females think is funny. Dad jokes don’t always work for moms.

    Reminds me of in Mary Poppins where Bert tells Uncle Albert a joke to cheer him up and says “I always say there’s nothing like a good joke.” Uncle Albert replies: “No. And that was nothing like a good joke.”

    You have to get up pretty early “oiley?” in the morning to get one over on Opal, Earl!

    “I’ll never forget walking down one of the aisles (of the grocery store) and seeing powdered milk; just add water and you get milk. Right next to it was powdered orange juice; just add water and you get orange juice. Then I saw baby powder, and I thought to myself, What a country!” – Yakov Smirnov

    It’s not surprising that older people wouldn’t get the same jokes that young people get, especially if the jokes involve pop culture references or current slang. On the other hand, a lot of younger people wouldn’t get jokes told by the older generation.

    I am pretty sure my wife is not a bigamist, secretly married to Earl. Maybe Opal is a twin sister I didn’t know about.

    Yesterday I had coffee with my nine buddies aged 66 > 79. For some reason we started talking about circumcision. So I mentioned that the current charge for circumcision is $200, plus tips. Half of them cracked up, and the other half didn’t get it.

    I get the type of response Opal gave a lot. People seem to have missed the If part, and give me a serious response to the “What” part. Two examples:

    If the opposite of “pro” is “con”, what is the opposite of “progress”?

    If a vegetarian is someone who eats vegetables, what do humanitarians eat?

    My wife often doesn’t get my jokes … of course, the fact that she doesn’t speak English may have something to do with it. The gag often gets lost in the translation!

    I once asked the internets if Baby Oil was flammable – it replied “No, but it is combustible, to keep those oiled babies away from an open flame”

    I remember the old Yakov Smirnoff routine about going to the supermarket. He saw powdered milk, just add water and you have milk. On another aisle, he saw powdered orange juice, just add water and you have orange juice. On yet another aisle, he saw baby powder – and exclaimed, “America! What a country!”

    In my experience with some of my elders, it’s not that they don’t get the joke, they just can’t hear it well enough. If you don’t give it clearly the first time, you will be doomed to repeat the punchline.

    I would have loved to have a conversation with both Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, Einstein and I would talk of music (he played the violin and I play the guitar) and Hawking about his humor despite his disabilities (I had an uncle who had polio who never had his disability stop him). If they both talked about Science I would be outside looking in so maybe I’ll add Sean Connery just so that I can listen to that voice one more time and he could talk about whatever he wanted. Indiana Jones was Henry Jones Junior and Indiana was the dog’s name??? lol
