or this classic: –
Um homem de oitenta anos foi ao seu médico.
“Vou casar-me na próxima semana, senhor doutor.”
“Muito bem,” disse o médico. “Que idade tem a sua amiga?”
“Dezoito,” respondeu o homem.
“Meu deus!” disse o médico. “Devo avisá-lo que qualquer atividade na cama poderá ser fatal.”
“Bem,” disse o homem. “Se ela morrer, morre.”
