Age vs Strength

by Bonnie Calhoun

The strong young man at the construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of one of the older workmen.

After several minutes, the older worker had enough. "Why don't you put your money where your mouth is," he said."I will bet a week's wages that I can haul something
in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you won't be able to wheel back."

"You're on, old man," the braggart replied. "Let's see what you got."

The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, "All right, put your boney butt in the wheelbarrow!"

    Thats a good one--wisdom usually wins over brawn. I have one for you the young couple had only been married for short time and she was a terrible cook. So bad she thought the smoke alarm in the kitchen was a timer--thats not the joke. On night while dining on the same ole, same ole. The wife excused herself for a short trip to the kitchen. When she left the room the husband proceeded to empty his plate feeding it to the dog under the table. When the wife returned the saw the dog licking his butt(as dogs often do) so she asked her husband what the dog was doing, he replied he just getting the bad taste out of his mouth..
