We work hard to put a smile on your face here at Starts at 60. This one got us giggling!

“Sixty is the worst age to be,” said the 60-year-old man. “You always feel like you have to go to the toilet and most of the time you stand there nothing comes out”

“Ah, that’s nothin’,” said the 70-year-old bloke. “When you’re seventy, you don’t have a bowel movement any more. You take laxatives, eat bran, sit on the toilet all day and nothin’ comes out!”

“Actually,” said the 80-year -old, “Eighty is the worst age of all.”

“Do you have trouble going to the toilet too?” asked the 60-year old.

“No, I go every morning at 6am. I go like a racehorse, no problem at all.”

“So, do you have a problem with your bowel movements?”

“No, I have one every morning at 6.30am,” the oldest man replied.

Exasperated, the 60-year-old said, “You go to the toilet every morning at 6am and again every morning at 6.30am. So what’s so bad about being 80?”

“I don’t wake up until 7am.”
