I can mind going to a old workmate's retiring night out a few years ago half way through the night he got his present so they asked him to do a speech. By the end of his speech the place was full of laughter what a man he stood up and thanked everyone and a big thanks to his family and wife. He was a school janitor most of his life he looked down at his feet and said well they have done thousands of miles and deserve to retire & rest. Then looked down at his knees and said well they have carried my weight around for years and deserve a rest. Looked down at his you know what and said as for you ya bugger you retired years ago so it's back to work for you as you have plenty time. Then pointed to his head and said think am 21 looked to his wife and said don't worry honey by the time i get home i will have forgot what i said.
