A forty-six year old man decides to get a face-lift for his birthday. On the way back from the doctor he walked by the newsstand to buy a paper. Before leaving he says "how old do you think I am?" "About 35" he replied... "actually I'm 46", the man says feeling really happy. Next he goes to the butcher's shop and again before leaving asks the same question, to which the butcher says "oh I would say about 29". That makes the man feel even better. While standing at a bus stop he asks an old woman the same question. "I'm 88 and my eyesight is fading but when I was young there was a short way of telling a man's age. If I put my hand down your pants and found your balls, diging there at your walnuts for, say fifteen minutes, I'd be able to say your exact age". The man said "What the hell! Go for it!" And she took her hand down his pants, fifteen minutes later the old lady announces, you're forty six years old. Wow! the man says that was incredible. how do you do that? The old lady replies "I was behind you at the butcher's shop".
