Them Old Jokes

Recommended Posts

Elderly woman is celebrating her 90th birthday so her friends invite her to lunch.

She arrives a little early. Bartender asks if she wants a drink. She says "sure, give me a scotch and water but only put in 2 DROPS of water".  Bartender gives her the drink.

Little while later her friends arrive and notice she is drinking.

So they ask her,  "you're having a drink? You don't normally drink !"

She replies, "well yes, I thought since it's my birthday and it's a special occasion, I decided to have a drink to celebrate"

"Well then", her friend replies,  "let us buy you a drink!"

"Ok", she says, "but make it a scotch and water and make sure you tell the bartender ONLY 2 DROPS of water"


So this goes on for the course of the afternoon, they bring her multiple drinks of scotch and water but with only 2 drops of water in the scotch.


Finally the party ends and the ladies all get up to leave. So the bartender walks over and tells the woman "in all my years of bar tending I have never had anyone ask for scotch and water with only 2 drops of water. Why only 2 drops of water?"


The woman replies " well sonny, even at my age I can still hold my liquor but I can't hold my water any longer"
