Ted, fresh out of business school, was being interviewed for a job as an accountant. The interviewer was a very nervous man who ran the small business he had started by himself.
The man said, "What I'm in need of is someone with an accounting degree. Mainly, I'm looking for someone who will do my worrying for me." "Excuse me?" Ted said.

"OK. How much does the job pay?" asked Ted.
"To start, sixty-five thousand dollars," was the man's reply.
"Sixty-five thousand dollars!" exclaimed Ted. "How on earth can such a small business afford a salary like that?"
"That, Ted, is your first worry!" was the reply.

Some tourists in the Chicago Museum of Natural History are marveling at the dinosaur bones. One of them asks the guard, "Can you tell me how old the dinosaur bones are?"
The guard replies, "Sure. They're sixty-five million, four years, and six months old."
"That's an awfully exact number," says the tourist. "How do you know their age so precisely?"
The guard answers, "Well, they were sixty-five million years old when I started working here, and that was four and a half years ago."
Ya know... the older I get, the less I crave things I have to stand in line for.
Years ago, when my daughter was dating, she couldn't decide what to get her boyfriend as a birthday present.
"Dad?" she asked, "If you were going to be sixteen this Thursday, what would you want?"
"Not another thing." I sighed, "Not another damn thing."
Trust me on this one - you'll always stay young if you live honestly, eat slowly, sleep sufficiently, work industriously, worship faithfully, & of course, lie like hell about your age.

Social Security agent to applicant: "Sir, I'm sorry, feeling sixty-five isn't enough; you must actually BE sixty-five.
