Pretty Good Jokes

Old Folk Jokes
A couple is walking along a beach. They are both sixty years old. They find a bottle in the sand. The husband rubs it and a genie comes out. "I will grant both of you one wish," the genie says. "But be careful, because every wish has its consequeces." The wife says, "I wish I had good helath." The genie says, "Very good. Your wish is granted." The husband says, "I wish that I had a wife like her, only thirty years younger." The genie says, "Alright, your wish is granted. Your ninety."

—Colby Ashenfelter, Lawton, Oklahoma
