Friday Funny

 The old man placed an order for one hamburger,  French fries and a drink .  He unwrapped the plain hamburger and  carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his wife.

He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them ,... As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them were looking over and whispering. Obviously they were thinking, 'That poor old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.’

As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said, they were just fine - they were used to sharing everything

People closer to the table noticed the little old  lady hadn't eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and  occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.

Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them.

This time the old woman said 'No, thank you, we  are used to sharing everything..' Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping  his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked 'What is it you are waiting for?’

She answered


Off to join Annie at Friday Smiles.  Have a great weekend!!!

Now, that is the first one of your's that I'd heard before.... but it's a guddun!!!
It reminded me that when DD2 studied in Moscow 1993 ish... they opened their first McDonalds and people queued to get in. They cost about 30p each and the economy was so bad that DD noticed families sharing one between them!! She often bought extra to give away. Aaaah!

They are always funnier when there is a bit of pathos there too. I've heard it before but it is still a funny one. kate x

I didn't see that punchline coming, Hettie! And when I did, it made me laugh first then shudder ... yucky funny :) Thanks for sharing. Elizabeth xx

Susanne Vargas said...

Haha, thanks for the chuckle!

Too funny! I hope we don't get to the point where we 'share' that intensely!!! Your blog-a-nition "Crapalanche" has been being a big hit when I use it in a post! I linked to you so that folks know you originated (at least you did with my knowledge of it!) and I put it in the Blog-a-nition tab with credit & a link to yourself! Hope all has been well with you, and TFS a smile this evening. Hugs

Splendid! I hadn't heard it before, so consider me grinning!

So sorry I've dropped off the face of the earth... but it looks as though it's a while since you've been here too - do hope all is well and it's just that you're productively busy with all your new (at least they were when we talked) work stuff and plans for the future.

Thanks so much for your wishes Hettie and a belated Happy Birthday (special one) to you. My birthday is June so I presume you too are Gemini?! Obviously I am a lot ahead of you as I came in at the tail end of WW2!!!
