Pretty Good Jokes

Old Folk Jokes
A big mouth college student challenged a senior citizen saying it was impossible for their generation to understand his world. “You grew up in a different world,” the student said.

“Today we have television, jet planes, space travel, nuclear energy, computers, the internet…”

Taking advantage of a pause in the student’s litany, the senior said,
“You’re right sonny . We didn’t have those things when we were young… so we invented them!”


—John Hansen, Moorpark, California
