An 80 year old Italian man from New York went to the doctor for a physical examination.
The doctor was absolutely amazed at what good shape the man was in and asked him, “How do you stay in such great physical condition?”
The man replied, “I’m Italian and I play golf, that’s why I’m in such good shape. I’m up well before daylight and out golfing up and down the fairways. I have a glass of vino and all is well”.
“Well”, the doctor said, “I’m sure that helps, but there’s got to be more to it than just being Italian, playing golf and drinking wine. How old was your Dad when he died?”
“Who said my Dad’s dead?” the Italian replied.
The doctor is amazed. “You mean you are 80 years old and your Dad’s still alive. How old is he?”
“He’s 100 years old,” the old Italian golfer said. “In fact he golfed with me this morning. Then we went to the topless beach for a walk, that’s why he’s still alive. He’s Italian and he’s a golfer too”.
“I am just amazed”, the doctor replied. “That’s great, but I’m sure there is more to it than that. How about your Grandfather? How old was he when he died?”
“Who said my Grandpa’s dead?” the Italian replied.
Completely tunned, the doctor asked him, “You mean you are 80 years old and your Grandfather is still living! That is ncredible, how old is he?”
“He is 118 years old”, the old Italian golfer said.
The doctor is getting frustrated at this point, so he asked the 80 year old Italian, “I guess he went golfing with you this morning too?”
“No, Grandpa couldn’t go golfing this morning because he’s getting married today”.
At this point the doctor is close to losing it.
“Getting married!” he exclaimed, “why would a 118 year old man want to get married?”
The 80 year old Italian replied, “Who said he wanted to?”
