Some humor for (and about) mature adults:


When one door closes and another door opens, you are probably in prison.


To me, "drink responsibly" means don't spill it.


When I say, "The other day," I could be referring to any time between yesterday and 15 years ago.


Interviewer: "So, tell me about yourself."

Me: "I'd rather not. I kinda want this job"


Cop: "Please step out of the car."

Me: "I'm too drunk. You get in."


I remember being able to get up without making sound effects.


I had my patience tested. I'm negative.


Remember, if you lose a sock in the dryer, it comes back as a Tupperware lid that doesn't fit any of your containers.


If you're sitting in public and a stranger takes the seat next to you, just stare straight ahead and say "Did you bring the money?"


When you ask me what I am doing today, and I say "nothing," it does not mean I am free. It means I am doing nothing.


Age 60 might be the new 40, but 9:00 is the new midnight.


I finally got eight hours of sleep. It took me three days, but whatever.


I run like the winded.


I hate when a couple argues in public, and I missed the beginning and don't know whose side I'm on.


When someone asks what I did over the weekend, I squint and ask, "Why, what did you hear?"


I don't remember much from last night, but the fact that I needed sunglasses to open the fridge this morning tells me it was awesome.


When you do squats, are your knees supposed to sound like a goat chewing on an aluminum can stuffed with celery?


I don't mean to interrupt people. I just randomly remember things and get really excited.


When I ask for directions, please don't use words like "east."


Don't bother walking a mile in my shoes. That would be boring. Spend 30 seconds in my head. That'll freak you right out.


That moment when you walk into a spider web suddenly turns you into a karate master.


Sometimes, someone unexpected comes into your life outta nowhere, makes your heart race, and changes you forever. We call those people cops.


The older I get, the earlier it gets late.
