    An 80 year old man went to the doctor for a checkup. The doctor was amazed at what good shape the guy was in. "To what do you attribute your good health?", he asked. The old timer replied, "I'm a turkey hunter and that's why I'm in such good shape. I'm up before dawn chasing turkeys up and down the mountain."



    The doctor said, "Well, I'm sure that helps, but there has to be more to it. How old was your dad when he died?"



    The old timer said, "Who said my dad's dead?" The doctor said, "You mean you're 80 years old and your dad's still alive? How old is he?"



    Replied the old timer, "He's 100 years old and, in fact, hunted turkeys with me this morning. That's why he's still alive. He's a turkey hunter."



    The doctor said, "Well, that's great, but I'm sure there's more to it. How about your dad's dad? How old was he when he died?"



    The old timer said, "Who says my grandpa's dead?"



    The doctor exclaimed, "You mean you're 80 years old and your grandfather's still living! How old is he?"



    Replied the old timer, "He's 118 years old."




    The doctor was getting frustrated at this point and said, "I suppose he went turkey hunting with you this morning, too?"


    The old timer said, "No...grandpa couldn't go this morning because he got married.



    In amazement, the doctor said, "He got married! Why would a 118 year old man want to get married?"

    The old timer replied, "Who said he wanted to?"
