How to Tell a Joke in an Old Folks Home

Answer:  Don't

The Joke:

Customer in coffee shop
:  I'll have coffee without cream..
Waitress
:  Sorry, Sir.  We're all out of cream.  You'll have to have it without milk.

The Response: (Laughter?  Well, no)  Silence.

Evaluation:  Maybe they've heard it before.  Or, maybe next time I remember an old joke, I'll bite my tongue before I tell it.

This is a funny entry and a true one. That is how it is at our senior center. Keep on telling them, maybe someday they will "get it". Paula
