Rye Bread August 5, 2017

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.

Two old guys, one 80 and one 87, were sitting on a park bench one morning.

The 87-year-old had just finished his morning jog and wasn’t even short of breath.

Amazed at the guy’s stamina, the 80-year-old asked him what he did to have so much energy.

The 87-year-old said, “Well, I eat Jewish rye bread every day.  It keeps your energy level high and you’ll have great stamina with the ladies. You’ll feel like you’re 40 again!”

On the way home the 80-year-old stopped at the bakery.

As he was looking around, the saleslady asked if he needed any help.  He nodded, “Do you have any Jewish rye bread?”

“Yes, there’s a whole shelf of it. Would you like a loaf?”

“Yes . . . I want five loaves.”

“My goodness, five loaves! By the time you get to the third loaf, it’ll be hard.”

“Man, I can’t believe it.  Everybody knows about this trick but me.”

Aah . . . that’s better!

Maybe even stale bread will “liven” him “up” . . .

That was a great way to start a cloudy and dreary Saturday morning where I live. Thank you. I think I’ll take a little trip to my local bakery, just in case it’s true.

So that’s what is known as rye humour?

That’s because your mind is NOT in the gutter, LM.

The side note to a very funny punchline is admiration that at their age, there’s interest! In bread, of course. 🙂
