I am posting this and hope that it doesn't contravene any rules, it came back into my orbit last week and I was SO pleased. It is a joke that my Father told me the last time I saw him, two days before he died. Despite the fact that he was very unwell and getting bedsores
(Which I got him a ripple mattress for immediately ) also having difficulty with his breathing, he shared this joke with me, something he rarely, if ever did in many many years before, so this joke has mixed emotions for me but mostly good, that he did tell me it despite the circumstances.
WHY MEN CAN PEE STANDING UP
God was just about done creating humans, but he had parts left over. He couldn’t decide how to split them between Adam and Eve so he thought he might just as well ask.
He told them one of the things he had left was a thing that would allow the owner to pee while standing up. “It’s a very handy thing” God told them “and I was wondering if either one of you had a preference for it”
Well Adam jumped up and down and begged “Oh please give that to me ! I’d love to be able to do that !! It seems like just the sort of thing a man should have Please ! Pleeeease !!! Give it to me ! On and on he went like an excited little boy.
Eve just smiled and told God that if Adam really wanted it so badly, he could have it. So God gave Adam the thing that allowed him to pee standing up.
Adam was so excited he just started Whizzing all over the place - first on the side of a rock, then he wrote his name in the sand, and then he tried to see if he could hit a stump from 10 feet away. - laughing with delight all the while.
God and Eve watched him with amusement and then God said to Eve “ Well I guess your kind of stuck with the last thing I have left.”
“What is it called ? Asked Eve. “Brains” said God.
I hope you enjoy it.
