You know you’re getting older when…

When you were a kid, did you have one of those uncles who told really, really bad jokes? You know: real stinkers that made you groan out loud? I know I did. Normally, they liked practical jokes too and you had to grow up a fair bit to look back and remember them with affection minus eye-rolling.

Someone (who shall remain nameless!) sent me this email today, and I actually chuckled out loud. And then it hit me, wiping the smile off my face as I realised: if I think this is funny, then I have crossed an invisible boundary. My sense of humour has changed, veered towards the gentle, the unassuming. In short, I am that uncle.

Take the test – chuckle or groan?

Subject: FW: iPADS – LET ME KNOW QUICK!!!!!

If you are interested in getting an iPad, I can get hold of them through a contact.

The numbers are limited and he has 10 iPads going for less than half price – it’s first come first served.

He has already sold one (pic is attached so you can see what you are getting – they are from a cancelled NHS contract due to the cutbacks.)

Get back to me as quick as you can if you want one.



  1. I think that’s really funny – nothing to do with age!

  2. I laughed loads at that. I have been told I love crap jokes but that’s brilliant!
