Old men telling each other tall tales about things they’ve done is not something new – it’s probably been around since our ancestors were sitting around stone age campfires. This is one of my favorite jokes about embellished stories!
Walter and John, two elderly men, were playing a game of backgammon in a retirement home, each trying to trump the other’s stories about their youth.
“You know, they used to call me Flash, because I could run so darn fast,” Hank said with pride.
“Is that so? Can you still do that?” Walter asked.
Hank replied, “Nah, my knees can’t take it. Anyway, did you use to have a nickname in your youth?”
“Yep, they used to call me Bucket,” Walter replied with a smile.
“Oh really, why is that?”
Walter said, “Well, you see, when I was young I could lift an entire bucket filled with water with just my johnson when I had a woody.”
“Wow! Can you still do that?” Hank asked.
“Nah, my knees can’t take it.”
