A plan to be ‘Young’ forever

Here’s a toast or roast joke about someone turning 50 years old. (Yes, it’s a real groaner but what toast/roast is complete without one or two of those.) Insert the name of your favorite birthday boy or girl:

“I was talking to John the other day and he said he was changing his last name to ‘Young.’ I asked why, and he said, ‘Well, then I can be Young until the day I die.’ “

A variation:

“John says he’s found the fountain of youth. He’s changing his last name to Young, because he said, ‘Then, I’ll be Young until the day I die.’ “

And, finally,

“I’m not saying that John’s losing a few of his marbles as he’s getting older, but the other day he told me he had a plan to stay young forever. I asked how, and he said, ‘Well, I figure I’ll change my last name to Young, then I’ll definitely be Young until the day I die.’ “

See, I told you these were groaners. (Credit goes to old guy I heard on NPR report use a variation on this line.)
