80 year old Marries

Post by Teddy » 31 May 2011, 16:18

The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had
just gotten married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked her questions
about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then
about her new husband's occupation. "He's a funeral director," she answered.

"Interesting," the newsman thought.

He then asked her if she wouldn't mind telling him a little about her first
three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments,
needing time to reflect on all those years.

After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly,
explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her early 20's,
then a circus ringmaster when in her 40's, and a preacher when in her 60's, and
now in her 80's, a funeral director.

The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had
married four men with such diverse careers.

She smiled and explained, "I married one for the money, two for the show,
three to get ready, and four to go."

Shocking Teddy! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
The last interglacial had less ice, higher sea levels, and warmer temperatures than this one. So, according to the evidence so far, human activity must have a COOLING effect.
