Starts at 60 Daily Joke: A man with severe headaches went to the doctor

A man with severe headaches went to the doctor.

The doctor examined him and eventually said: “The good news is I can cure your headaches but the bad news is that you have a rare condition which causes your testicles to press up against the base of your spine and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only solution is to remove the testicles.”

The man was shocked and depressed. He wondered if he had anything to live for. He thought for a while, but decided he had no choice but to go through with it.

Afterwards, he was headache free for the first time in over 20 years, but he still felt sad that he was missing a part of himself. As he walked down the street he saw a men’s clothing store and thought he needed a new suit.

An elderly salesman eyed him quickly and said: “Let’s see, you’re a size 44 long”.

The man replied: “That’s right, how did you know?”

“Been in the business 60 years!” the salesman said.

The man tried on the suit and it fit perfectly. The tailor asked: “How about a new shirt?” The man nodded his head.

“Let’s see, 16 and a half neck, 34 sleeve,” the salesman said. The man was surprised again that the shirt fit perfectly as well.

The salesman then asked: “How about new underwear?” The man nodded again.

The salesman stepped back, eyed the man’s waist and said: “Let’s see, size 36.”

The man laughed and replied: “Finally I’ve got you! I’ve worn size 32 since I was 18-years-old.”

The tailor shook his head and answered: “You can’t wear a size 32. Size 32 underwear would press your testicles against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache.”
