> An 80-year-old man went to his doctor for his quarterly check-up.  The
> doctor asked him how he was feeling and the 80-year-old said "Things are
> great and I've never felt better.  I now have a 20 year-old bride who is
> pregnant with my child.  So what do you think about that?" 
> The doctor considered his question for a minute and then began.  "I have
> an older friend, much like you, who is an avid hunter and never misses a
> season.  He left home one day in a hurry and accidentally picked up his
> walking cane instead of his gun.  On his way to hunt he saw a huge beaver
> sitting at the water's edge.  He realised he'd left his gun at home and so
> couldn't shoot the magnificent creature but out of habit he raised his
> cane, aimed it at the animal as if it were his favourite hunting rifle and
> went 'bang, bang'.  Miraculously, two shots rang out and the beaver fell
> over dead.  Now, what do you think of that?" asked the doctor. 
> The 80-year-old said, "If you ask me, I'd say somebody else pumped a
> couple of rounds into that beaver."
> The doctor replied, "My point exactly".
