Laughter: The Universal Language – #36

Thanks to my impish friend, Jennifer, for passing this one along. It’s just a tad NSFW, and anyway you don’t want to disturb your colleagues with your peals of laughter, so best to read it at home. 😉

Sunday Morning Sex

Upon hearing that her elderly grandfather had just passed away, Katie went straight to her grandparents’ house to visit her 95-year-old grandmother and comfort her.

When Katie asked how her grandfather had died, her tearful grandmother replied, “He had a heart attack while we were making love on Sunday morning.”

Horrified, Katie told her grandmother that two people nearly 100 years old having sex would surely be asking for trouble.

“Oh no, my dear,” replied Granny. “Many years ago, realizing our advanced age, we figured out the best time to do it was when the church bells would start to ring. It was just the right rhythm. Nice and slow and even. Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the Ding and out on the Dong.”

She paused to wipe away a tear, and continued, “He’d still be alive if the ice cream truck hadn’t come along.”


If you do not laugh at this, then you are seriously depressed;​ ​make a doctor’s appointment soon.

I will never hear church bells ringing again without smiling.
