An 86-year-old man went to his doctor for his quarterly check-up.
The doctor asked him how he was feeling, and the 86-year-old said, ‘Things are great and I’ve never felt better.’
‘I now have a 20 year-old bride who is pregnant with my child.’
‘so what do you think about that Doctor?’
The doctor considered his question for a minute and then began to tell a story.
‘I have an older friend, much like you, who is an avid hunter and never misses a season. One day he was setting off to go hunting. In a bit of a hurry, he accidentally picked up his walking cane instead of his gun.’
‘As he neared a lake, he came across a very large male beaver siting at the waters edge…’
‘He realized he’d left his gun at home and so he couldn’t the magnificent creature. Out of habit he raised his cane, aimed it right at the animal as if it were his favorite hunting rifle and went ‘bang bang’.’
‘Miraculously, two shots rang out and the beaver fell over dead.
Now what do you think about that?’ asked the doctor.
The 86-year-old said, ‘Logic would strongly suggest that someone else pumped a couple of rounds into that beaver.’
The doctor replied, ‘My point exactly.’
