A husband notices his wife’s hearing is deteriorating and decides to visit her doctor for advice.

“I can’t speak to my wife directly as she might find it offensive, given our old age” he says to the doc. “There’s a simple trick you can try to determine her hearing” explains the doctor. “Simply ask her a question at a distance and if she doesn’t hear you, move slightly closer and ask again until she does”. That night, the husband arrives home and sees his wife in the kitchen cooking. He thinks to himself, “what a perfect opportunity to test her hearing”. He stands in the doorway of the kitchen and promptly asks; “What’s for dinner honey?” No answer. He moves closer. “What’s for dinner honey?” Still no answer. He moves even closer. “What’s for dinner honey?” Still his wife doesn’t answer. He now sees how serious her hearing problem is. At this point, he is stood right next to his wife. “What’s for dinner honey?” “FOR THE FOURTH FUCKING TIME WE’RE HAVING CHICKEN”

This may be old, but I gotta say it totally got me. Made me laugh out loud. Good one.


That’s a twist I did not expect upvote earned


Always a pleasure when an actual funny joke somehow stumbles into r/jokes.


An old man in his 90’s is watching tv and a sexy commercial comes on. After the ad the old fella realizes he has a stiffy. He gets up and shuffles into the kitchen to show his wife.. ‟MARTHA!!! MARTHA!!! Look at this. What should i do with it?” His wife looks up at him and replies,‟ You might as well clean it now that you got the wrinkles out of it”.


This joke? THIS IS MY LIFE. Both my 72 year old mom and 79 year old father are DEAF AF and neither will get their hearing checked because they are convinced they are fine. It’s infuriating. It’s all day of them screaming and getting mad at each other because they are yelling and assuming the other person is just ignoring them and THE OTHER PERSON is the problem and the one that can’t hear shit. My ten year old, my husband and I are exasperated. Edit; update. I read this to them. (Loudly). I’m hoping they’ll both go get their hearing checked eventually.
