Pretty Good Jokes

Old Folk Jokes
One day a man said to his wife: "I've been thinking. When we were married thirty years ago, I had no money and lived in a rented one-bedroom apartment; but every night I was in bed with a beautiful 20-year-old girl. Now, I have money and live in a beautiful home, but I'm sleeping with a middle-aged woman."

His wife replied, "Well, if you can find a beautiful 20 year old to sleep with, I'll see to it that you don't have any money and are living in a rented one-bedroom apartment."

—Harold Melnick, Santa Fe, New Mexico
