Thursday Special ~ Respect

An Arabic family in Perth,  Australia was considering putting their grandfather Abdullah in a nursing home.

All the Arabic facilities were completely full so they had to put him in an Australian home.

After a few weeks in the Australian facility, they came to visit Grandpa.  ”How do you like it here?” asks the grandson.

”It’s wonderful!  Everyone here is so courteous and respectful”, says grandpa.

”We’re so happy for you. We were worried that this was the wrong place for you.  You know, since you are a little different from everyone.”

”Oh, no! Let me tell you about how wonderfully they treat the residents”, Abdullah says with a big smile.

”There’s a musician here– he’s 85 years old. He hasn’t played the violin in 20 years and everyone still calls him ‘Maestro’!

There is a judge in here — he’s 95 years old. He hasn’t been on the bench in 30 years and everyone still calls him ‘Your Honour’!

There’s a dentist here — 90 years old.. He hasn’t fixed a tooth for 25 years and everyone still calls him Doctor?!

And me  — “I haven’t had sex for 35 years and they still call me ‘The  F*****g  Arab”.




Thank you my Anony Mouse friend

    I think this is the same old guy I heard about recently.
    Seems he was completely deaf for years, but had new hearing aids implanted and now could hear everything.

    Someone said to him,”I suppose your family is very happy that you can hear them now.”

    The old guy replied,” I haven’t told them. I just sit in the corner and listen to every word they say. I’ve changed my will three times.”

    Rummy, a “super fertile stud”. I wonder where a person can buy that “extra extra extra strength viagra”?

    I think that Aussies are more likely to call him a f****** towel head, but then they would call me a f****** old pommie b******* ! … So articulate those Australians. 🙂
