Senior Man Purchases Lingerie for His Wife

Pensioners, retirees, and seniors are the protagonists of many of our stories with completely surprising punchlines. Their sarcasm and wit appear to be honed to a sharp point through years of living. 

The fellow in this joke may not have survived the event in question with his cocky answer to his lady love, so thankfully the story is just fictitious!

A senior man enters a lingerie store to purchase a sexy negligee for his equally elderly wife. It's her birthday and he decides to spoil her, and himself too.

The saleswoman shows him several possibilities that range from $250 to $500 in price, The sheerer the garment, the higher the price.

Naturally, he opts for the most see-through item, pays the $500, and takes it home. He presents it to his wife with much fanfare and asks her to go upstairs and put it on to model it for him.

Upstairs the wife shrewdly thinks,

“I have an idea. It’s so sheer that it might as well be nothing. I won’t put it on, I’ll model naked. His eyes are so bad anyway, he'll never notice. I can return it tomorrow and keep the $500 refund for myself and buy something I really want instead.”

So she appears naked on the balcony and strikes a sexy pose, just like the girls on the Vogue magazine covers.

Her husband looks up, squints at her and says,

“Good Lord! You’d think for $500, they’d at least iron it!”
