Three old men talking about their aches and pains.
The 75 year old says “I have a problem. I wake up every morning at 7am and it takes me 20 minutes to pee”.
The 80 year old says, “my case is worst.  I get up at 8am and it takes me half an hour to take a bowel movement”
The 90 year old says, “not me.  At 7am, I pee like a horse and I crap like a cow.”
So the others ask, “so what’s your problem?”
He replies, “I don’t get up until 9am”
