Incredible! That must mean there's some very old posters on here.

Also, is not being born with a sense of humour a disability? If so, I feel guilty for winding up Pogle & Fitzy :eyes

Perhaps older people find less amusement in other's misfortunes? After all isn't that what laughing is all about? What is a joke without a victim? And displaying of teeth, etc.

Probably. As you get up to SB's age, you probably think, that could be me next!

my dad used to say that.
he said if you heard a funny joke you might laugh for ages, but if you saw an old lady fall down a coal-hole you would probably split your sides

I am still more than happy to laugh at others' misfortunes.
I think, "Thank Fook that is not me......silly old buffer!!"
Anyway, I think I will make a fantastic old curmudgeon. My life thus far has been building up to it. And I am well on track!!

It might be connected to decline in libido as all the best jokes are dirty, about huge bums and fannies etc

I actually invented a joke the other day.

Richard Gere is guesting on Top Gear
Come the time for shooting, Clarkson is running around in a panic saying has anyone seen Hammond?
