A man went to see an insurance agent about getting some life insurance. The agent asked the man, “How old was your father when he died, and what caused his death?”

He answered, “He was 39, and he died of a heart attack.”

The agent then asked, “How old was your mother when she died, and what caused her death?”

The man replied, “She was 43 when she died of cancer.”

“I’m sorry,” the agent said. “Your family history shows too much of a risk for us to insure you.”

The man went to a different insurance company to try his luck there.

The agent asked, “How old was your father when he died, and what caused his death?”

“He was 96, and he died when he fell off of a horse while playing polo.”

“And what about your mother?” the agent asked. “At what age did she die, and what caused her death?”

“She was 97,” he answered, “and she died in childbirth.”

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”—Proverbs 17:22

    Age of Father (if living) – 102
    Age of Mother (if living) – 97
    Your parents are 97 and 102??!
    No, but they would be…. if they were living. 😉 😆
