"My Favorite Joke"

-- Robin Williams favorite joke from the Sept 18th, 2008 issue of Rolling Stone...

" Guy's having sex with his wife. All of a sudden he looks over, and there in the doorway is his son, about eight years old. Kid looks horrified, and the kid runs away. The guy says to his wife, 'Well, I'd better talk to Timmy.'

He puts on his clothes and goes to Timmy's room. He opens the door , and there's Timmy nailing Grandma. The father goes 'Oh, my God!' And the kid goes, 'Not so funny when it's your mom, is it?' "

---

On a separate note about the magazine, Rolling Stone knows when I'm going to die. February 26th, 2054. I bought a lifetime subscription years ago for $99 and the expiration date on my magazine is 2-26-54. I'll be pushing 82 years old.

Whaaaaat? That is awesome. Except that you die at 82. I vote for living longer.

I finally think it's okay to "weigh in." Joke is hillarious and, how can there be an expiration date on a lifetime subscription. (at the same time I doubt I'll reach 82 so Kudos to you) I adore you and your outlook on the world and kids. I came to you via Amber's blog but I got to her through another. I do have a bit of a fear that I am among those who made you feel snarky (I wrote about a hole in my bed when you were talking about rubbing bellies.) I'm not an IF mom (I had my three kids with no trouble by the time I was 29 at which point my husband decided I should have a tubal ligation and I agreed and cried and cried when I woke from the surgery.) Sometimes I feel like a voyeur in this forum but I really love hearing what folks have to say. I care deeply (if sometimes clumsily.) I hope I have not hurt any feelings and I also hope you will "let me have it" if I have.

If anyone can outlive Rolling Stone, it's you.

Funny joke.

Mareike, You did not offend me in your comment in the least bit. Dontcha go worrying about it. The "offender" wasn't talking about or to me, so it couldn't of been anything anyone wrote to me. It was just an in general type thing.

And I thought the same about my "lifetime" membership, but then again, I don't think I'd be too upset about not getting to read Rolling Stone at age 82.

Mareike said...

Nancy, you are too fucking sweet (the kids aren't listening so I can say that right?) You are right. You'll be doing well if you can read rolling stone at 82 never mind care about it. time for me to go to bed. 8:08 in California. (I never said I was a young'un)

jenn said...

ha- great joke!

82 is a good age, & if anyone's still going to read Rolling Stone at 82, it would be you!

just make sure they know to keep sending it to Shady Pines.

I love Robin Williams...

JamieD said...

Whoa . . . creepy.

Sarah R said...

I have a feeling that you'll still be getting tattoos at 82...long live fun-loving Nancy! :)

theclam said...

LOL @ the joke!

And lifetime subscriptions expire? Think if you're still going strong at 82 they'll extend that expiration date?

Kaci said...

I love Robin Williams.

I think you need to send Rolling Stone a letter and ask them what the fuck they know that you don't!

And thanks for the encouragement - it seems you always pop in when I'm getting frustrated because it's going slow!

Mareike said...

Now I'm thinking we should all write to Rolling Stone and question them on your "expiration date." Wouldn't they be surprised to get a gazillion messages about Nancy's lifetime subscription. And heck, if they know your expiration date perhaps I should check with them about mine. Maybe I should be getting my "effects" in order. I have three dogs and three cats who depend on me. (I suppose I'll be told I need a subscription in order to get my expiration date and I bet it's more than $99.00)

Sara said...

No shit. That joke is funny - and disgusting to think about!

Elana Kahn said...

That joke is awesome. I actually said "Oh my G-d" out loud. :-)

Jenn BG said...

That's so crazy that they put a date on it. 82 isn't too bad. :)

Wordgirl said...

That joke made me laugh -- have you seen 'The Aristocrats' ? I wouldn't recommend it to just anyone but I think you would LOVE it...I thought it was hilarious.

XOOX

So of course you'll have to live to at least 83, right? I can imagine you raising hell with Rolling Stones about a "lifetime" subscription that didn't last your entire life. Hahah!

Great joke, too.

docgrumbles said...

could be nice to have an actual end date... but I bet it'd be like a pregnancy due date, lots of room for error.

That was a hilarious joke!
