4. You have a chance to buy additional life insurance but you buy a new
convertible car instead.

And one other that touched a funny bone. A tad more risque.

Just checking for any signs of cancer, Dear . . .

After 5 minutes of playtime , all pornographic films should automatically switch to a scene instructing us on how to check for testicular cancer .
At least that way if the wife walks in , we have an excuse for sitting in the living room with our pants around our ankles.

BBC News: Men are not carrying out the appropriate checks for signs of cancer.

Social media reply: Not true. I'm so "cancer aware" that, not only do I check my own arse and testicles, but I check my girlfriend's tits for lumps as well.... though she does get a bit uncomfortable with this when we're on the bus

It's not only women who lose interest in sex once cancer affects our lives.

This from John at Sydney's Royal North Shore:

"My wife told me she was re-naming my dick to "Bill Gates"

I said "Why, because it makes you feel a billion dollars?"

"No, 'cos it's Micro-soft"

And a nice straight one to finish the chuckles for the day:

"What do you call a doctor who is always on the telephone?"

Wait for it . . . "An ON-CALLogist."

Laughter really is the best medicine!
