An old man placed an order for one hamburger, french fries and a drink…

He unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his wife.

He then carefully counted out the french fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them.

As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them were looking over and whispering.

Obviously, they were thinking, “That poor old couple…all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.”

As the man began to eat his fries, a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple.

The old man said, they were just fine, they were used to sharing everything.

People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn’t eaten a bite.

She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.

Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them.

This time the old woman said, “No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything.”

Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked, “What is it you are waiting for?”

She answered, “THE TEETH!”

  1. The lady turns to the man and says “I remember when we were young, you used to tell me you loved me”.

    Grudgingly the man replies “Of course I love you”. 

    The lady says “And I remember when we were young, you would hold me closely and caress me in your arms”. 

    With a sigh, the man puts his arms around his wife and holds her close for a moment. 

    She then continues: “And I remember when we were young, you used to nibble on my ear”. 

    With that the man abruptly threw off the covers, got up and strode across the bedroom. 

    “What’s wrong?” said his wife. 

    He replied, “Got to go and put my teeth in!

  2. I totally forgot about this joke! In junior high (‘03) I took a public speaking class and we had to tell a joke as one of our assignments and I told this one. I found it in a Readers Digest at the time, I think

  3. Would have been better like:

    Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked, “What is it you are waiting for?”

    She answered, “THE TEEPH!”

  4. But… Why does sharing one set of teeth preclude them from each having their own meal? Seems like 80% of this joke was about dividing the one meal into two equal portions when that was in fact completely unnecessary. What am I missing?
