Silvio, an 80-year-old Italian gentleman went to see his new doctor for a check-up. The doctor is amazed at what good shape the guy is in and asks: “How do you stay in such great physical condition?”
“I’m Italian and I’m an avid golfer,” Silvio replied, “and that’s why I’m in such good shape. I wake up well before daylight and I’m out walking the fairways, I’m a walking golfer. I have a glass of wine afterward.”
“Well,” the doctor replied, “I’m sure that helps but there’s got to be more to it. How old was your father when he died?”
“Who said my father’s dead,” Silvio asked. The doctor is amazed. “You mean you’re 80 years old and your father is still alive? How old is he?
“He’s 100,” said Silvio. “In fact he played golf with me this morning and then we went to a topless beach for a walk and had a little wine and that’s why he’s alive. He’s Italian, and he’s a golfer too.”
“Well,” the doctor said, “that’s great but I’m sure there’s more to it than that. How about your father’s father? How old was he when he died?”
“Who said my Nonno’s dead,” Silvio responded.
Stunned, the doctor asks: “You mean you’re 80 and your grandfather’s still living? Incredible. How old is he?”
“He’s 118 years old,” Silvio replied.
The doctor was beside himself at this point. “So I guess he went golfing with you this morning too?”
“No, no,” Silvio answered, “he couldn’t go this morning because he’s getting married today.”
At that, the doctor was close to losing it. “Getting married? Why would a 118-year-old guy want to get married?”
Silvio grinned a sly grin and said:
“Who said he wanted to get married?”
