Getting Old Really Bites

I’m telling ya, being a middle-aged shark ain’t easy. I just got back from the doctor, he tells me I gotta get more exercise — or as he puts it, I gotta keep moving or I’ll die. Plus I gotta cut back on the coffee, and give up cigars, alcohol, and dachshunds. Oh man, I love a good doxie after a long day, that one’s really gonna hurt.

    Yep, that canine is definitely loose.

    This made me laugh.

    NTMTOM, your good deed for the day has been done.

    I used to read Victorian romance novels. “Doxie” meant something very different from what it means here. But I’m sure Mr. Shark’s doctor would want him to give up those, too.

      Yes – Swann & Flanders (musical comedy duo) had a song (or at least came up with a title) “Doxies without Smocks-ies”.

    Having just returned from the doc after a similar conversation, I’m feeling sorry for the poor old shark.

      I know! I’ve got a check-up this afternoon. By 50, these appointments are NOT fun.

    I read the hover text with an Australian accent, a la the sharks from Finding Nemo.

    I have heard of having a frog in your throat, but a dog in your throat? 😀

      It is what happens when your voice is a little “ruff”

    Maybe if you don’t inhale? Or slurp. The doc would cut you some slack.

    After a long day, who doesn’t enjoy a nice weiner?

    Quick, I’m meeting my new girlfriend in 5 minutes, do I have something stuck in my teeth?

    The hair of the dog wasn’t enough, so he went for the whole thing…
