Old people jokes

Updated on December 13, 2012
My elderly aunts love telling jokes like these. I hope you enjoy them, too.

Could you speak up?

Three old guys, all hard of hearing, were playing golf one sunny spring morning. One says to another, "Windy, isn't it?" "No," the second man answers, "it's Thursday." The third guy, listening in, pipes up, "So am I! Let's grab a beer."

Three absent-minded sisters

Three sisters, aged 81, 83 and 85, live together. One night the 85 year old draws a bath for herself. As she sticks her foot in, she pauses. She yells to her sisters downstairs, "Was I getting in or out of the bath?"

The 83 year old shouts back loudly, "I don't know. Let me come up there and see." She begins walking up the stairs, but then pauses . She yells to her sisters "Was I going up the stairs or down?"

The 81 year old is sitting in the living room, enjoying some tea. She listens to her sisters, shakes her head and mutters to herself, "I sure hope I never get that forgetful. Knock on wood." She then turns and shouts, "I'll come up there and help both of you as soon as I see who's knocking at the door."

Old friends

Two elderly ladies, Ethel and Martha, had been the best of friends for over 50 years. Over the decades they had spent together, they had worked together, lived next door to each other, and even vacationed together with their husbands. In their golden years, they would meet every afternoon to play cards.

One day, as they were wrapping up a game of pinochle, Ethel looks at Martha sheepishly and says , "Now please don't get angry with me. I know we've been friends for a long time, but I just can't seem to remember your name! I've been wracking my brain for the past hour but it still escapes me. Please remind a forgetful old lady!"

Martha glares angrily at her. For five minutes, she doesn't speak, only giving her friend stares of disappointment. Finally, Martha asks, "How soon do you need to know?"

Behind the wheel

As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his cell phone rang. Picking up, he heard his wife, her voice high with anxiety, warn him, "Henry, I just saw on the news that there's a car driving the wrong way on Highway 880. Please be careful!"

"One?" replied Henry, "You've got to be kidding me. I see at least a hundred!"


Two elderly women, Mildred and Hazel, were out driving in a large car, barely able to see over the dashboard.

As they're driving along to the grocery store, they approach an intersection. The light is red, but Mildred just drives on through, not hesitating for a second. Bewildered, Hazel thinks to herself "I must be losing it. I could've sworn we just drove through a red light."

A few minutes later, they come up to another red light. Again, Mildred drives right on through. Hazel is alarmed, but is still not sure if she's imagining things. At the next intersection, however, Mildred drives through another red light, prompting Hazel to turn to her friend. "Mildred, are you aware that we just ran through three red lights in a row?"

Mildred replies: "You know, I noticed that too!"

Hazel, flabbergasted, stammers, "You could have gotten us both killed!"

Mildred turns to her slowly, and says, "Me?! I thought you were driving!"


A retired woman calls 911 on her cellphone to report that her car has been broken into. She is hysterical as she explains her situation to the dispatcher: "They've stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator!" she cries.

The dispatcher replies reassuringly, "Don't worry, ma'am. An officer is on his way."

A few minutes later, the dispatched officer calls in. "Disregard." He says. "She got into the back seat by mistake."


A man walking through a park notices an old lady sitting on a bench crying her eyes out. He feels bad and stops to ask her what's wrong. She sobs, "I have a gorgeous 24 year old husband at home. Every morning, he makes passionate love to me, and then gets up and brings me breakfast in bed."

Puzzled, the man says, "Lucky lady! Well, then why are you crying?" Wiping tears off her cheeks, she replies, "For lunch, he makes me my favorite -- homemade tomato soup and a grilled cheese -- and then he makes love to me all afternoon long."

Still confused, the man asks, "That sounds wonderful. What could possibly make you so sad?" Between gasps for air, she replies, "For dinner he take me out to finest restaurants, pays for everything, and then takes me home to a night of unbelievable lovemaking."

Exasperated, the man asks, "Well, why on earth are you crying?" With a look of utter despair, the lady bawls, "I can't remember where I live!"

Tools of the trade

Two elderly women were eating breakfast in a restaurant one morning. Marjorie notices something peculiar about Mabel's ear and says, '"Mabel, why on earth do you have a suppository in your left ear?"

Mabel, surprised, replies, "I have a suppository in my ear?" She pulls it out and stares at it for a moment. Blushing, she replies, "Marj, sweetheart, thanks for letting me know. Now I think I know where to find my missing hearing aid."

The Church Organist

Eighty-three year old Clara Miller was a church organist, and had never been married. She was adored by her congregation for her sweet, if innocent, demeanor.

The church deacon came to visit her one afternoon, and she brought him him into her living room to enjoy some tea and cookies. 

He looked around the room and his eyes fell on her old pump organ. The deacon noticed a glass bowl filled with water sitting on it. Getting up from his seat to have a closer look, he was shocked to see a condom floating in it.

Stunned, he stumbled back to his seat as Clara returned with the tea and cookies.

For a few minutes, they chit-chatted, but the deacon had trouble getting his mind off the condom floating in the glass bowl. Finally, his curiosity got the best of him and he asked.

"Miss Miller, I was wondering if you could tell me a little about this...", said the deacon, and he pointed to the bowl.

Clara beamed. "Isn't it wonderful? I was strolling through the park a couple of months ago, and I found a little foil packet on a bench. It instructed to put it on the organ, keep it wet, and that it would prevent disease. And wouldn't you know, I haven't had a cold or flu since."

Ice cream parlor

A small, elderly man slowly shuffled into an ice cream parlor and carefully pulled himself onto a stool at the counter, wincing the whole time.

After a moment of catching his breath and wiping his brow, he ordered a hot fudge sundae. 

Writing down his order, the waitress asked, "Crushed nuts?"

"No," he breathed wearily. "Rheumatism."

Keeping regular

Morty, Simon and Jack were discussing their daily health woes.

Morty sighs and says, "I hate having to try to pee in the morning. I'll sit on the toilet for hours and all I can manage is a slow dribble. It's torture."

Simon shakes his head, and says, "I have it worse. I sit on the pot for hours hoping for a BM. It's agonizing."

Jack turns up his lips, and says, "You two think you have it bad? I never have those kinds of trouble. I've relieved myself completely by 8 o'clock every morning."

Morty and Simon look at each incredulously and turn to Jack. "What on earth are you complaining about, then?!" they ask.

"I don't wake up until 9!"

Colorful hair

An old man was sitting on a bench in the mall when a teenager with spiked hair came over and sat down beside him. The boy's hair was yellow, green, orange, and purple. He had black makeup around his eyes. The old man just stared at him.

The boy says scornfully, "What's the matter, old man, haven't you ever done anything wild in your life?"

The old man sighs and replies, "Well yes, actually, I have. I once got drunk and had sex with a parrot. I was just wondering if you were my son."

      OMG these were amazing totally but I think you need a lot more jokes so....

      A guy at a bar says to the bartender will you give me a beer if I show you something amazing so the bar tender agrees. The man pulls a tiny piano out of his pocket and a rat. The rat starts playing a song the bar tender gives the guy a drink. The guy says will you give ma drinks for the whole lunch hour if I show you something cooler. The bartender thinks what could be cooler then a rat playing on a piano and agrees. So the guy takes a rat out of his pocket a piano and a frog. As the rat plays the paino the frog sings and the bar tender is amazed. All of a sudden a tourist want to buy the frog and the man agrees at $150,000 the bar tender yells that could have been a million dollar frog. And the guy says the frog really wasn't much but that rat sure is a good ventriliquist. LOL!

      Good stuff. Here's one my grandmother told me - when she was in her 90's!

      This old man, Buster, and and old woman, Sally, met at a nursing home and decided they should get married so they could participate in all the rights of a married couple, including sex.

      On their wedding night they took turns in the bathroom getting all spiffied up .... and Sally went first and then Buster went in get ready. When Buster came out of the bedroom he saw an unusual sight and was pretty confused. Sally was in the corner of the room standing on her head with her legs spread wide. Buster said "what are you doing Sally?"

      Sally said .... "well, I thought if you couldn't get it up you could at least drop it in!"

      Very nice!! Here's a little twisted one:

      Two ladies are sitting outside at their retirement home, smoking cigarettes and enjoying the sunny day when it begins to rain. One of the ladies reaches into her purse and pulls out a condom and a pair of scissors. As the other lady watches, she then proceeds to pull out the rubber, snips the tip off, and covers her cigarette with it.

      "That's a great idea!", says the other lady, and she takes a leave of absence to walk down to the convenience store.

      She enters the store and walks up to the counter. A young lad is sitting there reading a magazine, and without looking, asks the lady, "Can I help you?"

      "Those condoms there, how much?"

      The boy puts down the magazine and jumps up, in shock of the request from the elderly voice, looks at the old lady, looks at the wall of condom packages, then looks again back to the old lady.

      A slight moment of encouragement comes over the young man, thinking this is just some random prank, he asks,"Well, what size would you like?"

      The lady replies honestly, "Anything that'll fit over a Camel."

      I forgot to share the following with you and your fans:

      A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa , taking her faithful OLD poodle named Cuddles, along for the company. One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long, Cuddles discovers that he's lost.. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch. The old poodle thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep doo-doo now!" Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap the old poodle exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?"   Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!", says the leopard, "That was close! That old poodle nearly had me!"

       Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up. The  monkey  soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard.

      The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!

       Now, the old poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, "What am I going to do now?", but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old poodle says.

       "Where's that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!
