Pretty Good Jokes

Men&Women Jokes
When golfing one day I was paired up with an elderly couple and naturally, in the course of the game, asked them about their history. The women said that she had been married four times and most recently to an undertaker. She further explained that her first husband had been a banker but he had died in his thirties. Her second husband had been, of all things, a circus ringmaster, he had died when she was in her fourties. Her third husband had been a doctor who had, of course, died in her sixties. I was amazed at her life story and said wow you have had an interesting life, how was it that you married these unusual people. She replied " well the first husband was for the money, the second was for the show, the third was for the money and the fourth was to go".
