An 80-year-old man went to the doctor for a checkup and the doctor was amazed at what good shape the guy was in. The doctor asked, 'To what do you attribute your good health?'
The old timer said, 'I'm a pilot and that's why I'm in such good shape. I'm up well before daylight and out flying all over the countryside.'
The doctor said, 'Well, I'm sure that helps, but there's got to be more to it. How old was your dad when he died?'
The old timer said, 'Who said my dad's dead?'
The doctor said, 'You mean you're 80-years-old and your dad's still alive? How old is he?'
The old timer said, 'He's 100-years-old and, in fact, he flew next to me this morning in his own airplane. That's why he's still alive... he's a pilot!' The doctor said, 'Well, that's great, but I'm sure there's more to it. How about your dad's dad? How old was he when he died?'
The old timer said, 'Who said my grandpa's dead?'
The doctor said, 'You mean you're 80-years-old and your grandfather's still living! How old is he?'
The old timer said, 'He's 118-years-old.'
The doctor was getting frustrated at this point and said, 'I guess he went flying with you this morning too?'
The old timer said, 'No...Grandpa couldn't go this morning because he got married.' The Doctor said in amazement, 'Got married!! Why would a 118-year-old guy want to get married?'
The old timer said, 'Who said he wanted to?'
