Funny as a Heart Attack

A group of older men gather once a week to talk about life after a heart attack. Old Len chews tobacco still and tells jokes in a voice so low no one can hear the punch line. Another man asks Len to talk louder so they all can hear the punch line. That’s when they discover Len's been telling the same joke at every meeting, over and over. The joke’s about a loan officer who lends a man $10,000 for a face lift that turns out so good the lender can’t find him. With heart attacks in common, the men yell “Tell it, again, Len!” Donal Mahoney
