One day, as a husband and wife are eating lunch at the local tavern, the husband leans over to his wife and says, “Do you remember the first time we made love together, more than 50 years ago? We went behind this tavern, where you leaned against the back fence.”
“Yes,” she says while blushing. “I remember it well.”
“How about taking a stroll around there again and we can do it for old time’s sake?” he asks.
“Oh Jim, you old devil, that sounds like a crazy – but good -idea!”
A police officer sitting in the next booth hears their conversation and, having a chuckle, thinks to himself, I’ve got to see these two old timers getting it on. I’ll just keep an eye on them so there’s no trouble. So he follows.
The elderly couple walk along, aided by walking sticks. Finally, they get to the back of the tavern and make their way to the fence. As the old lady leans against the fence, the old man makes his move.
Suddenly they erupt into the most furious love-making the policeman has ever seen. This goes on for about 10 minutes while both are making loud noises and moaning and screaming. Finally, they both collapse, panting on the ground.
The policeman is amazed. He thinks he has learnt something about life and old age that he didn’t know.
After about half an hour of lying on the ground recovering, the old couple struggle to their feet and put their clothes back on.
The policeman is still watching and thinks to himself, “This is truly amazing, I’ve got to ask them what their secret is.”
So, as the couple passes, he says to them, “Excuse me, I don’t mean to be rude, but that was something else. You must’ve had a fantastic sex life together. Is there some sort of secret to this?”
Shaking, the old man is barely able to reply, “Fifty years ago, that wasn’t an electric fence.”
