Friday Fun

Like most of you, I get jokes in my email almost every day.  I seldom read them and almost never pass them on, but today is an exception.  Partly because the email was from my Mom.  In a couple of weeks, my Mom will be… woops!  I almost gave away a state secret, let’s just say almost 90… any way, when she sends an email, I know that there will shortly be a follow up phone call, so I need to look at it.  And, as it works out the joke was hilarious, at least to my odd sense of humor.

So, I figured “what the heck, let’s have a laugh today” and here it is:


New Assisted Living Plan

Senior Health Care

So if you’re a sick senior citizen and the government says
There is no nursing home available for you, what do you do?

Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and four bullets.
You are allowed to shoot four Congressmen in the but.Of course, this means you will be sent to prison where you
Will get three meals a day, a roof over your head,
Central heating, air conditioning and all
The health care you need!

Need new teeth? No problem.
Need glasses? That’s great.

Need a new hip, knees, kidney, lungs or heart?
They’re all covered.

And, as an added bonus, your kids can come
And visit you as often as they do now.

And who will be paying for all of this?
It’s the same government that just told you that they
Cannot afford for you to go into a nursing home.

Plus, because you are a prisoner, you don’t
Have to pay any income taxes anymore.

Is this a great country or what?
