One funny joke about the elderly is: "Why do retirees always smile? Because they can't hear what you're saying!" Two more jokes are: "You know you're old when people call at 9 p.m. and wake you up," and, "The best thing about being 103 is that there's no peer pressure."
The humor in jokes about the elderly mostly comes from stereotypes. However, this kind of humor also provides funny, entertaining surprises. A funny senior citizen joke is: "Why do nursing homes give Viagra to the old men every night? It keeps them from rolling out of bed!"
A long joke about the elderly is called "The Internet? What's That?" It goes like this: "A middle-aged woman begs her technologically challenged, elderly mother to use the Internet for the first time. The mother decides to sit at the computer and asks her daughter what to do. The daughter opens up the Google home page and instructs her mother to type any question she has into the search bar to get started. The mother types: 'How is my friend Gertrude doing this morning?'"
Another good elderly joke is about hearing aids: "Sam, an elderly man with a hearing problem, visits his local audiologist. The audiologist says that Sam needs hearing aids and can choose from several pairs, ranging from $10 to $2,000. Sam selects a $10 pair. The nurse places the aids in Sam's ears and a long wire around his neck. Sam questions the necessity of the wire, to which the nurse replies: 'You think these things in your ears do anything? It's the wire around your neck. It makes people talk louder!'"
