Mr. Brightside

Frank always looked on the bright side. He would constantly irritate his friends with his eternal optimism. No matter how horrible the circumstance, he would always reply, “It could have been worse.”

To cure him of his annoying habit, his friends decided to invent a situation so completely bad, so terrible, that even Frank could find no hope in it.

On the golf course one day, one of them said, “Frank, did you hear about Tom? He came home last night, found his wife in bed with another man, shot them both and then turned the gun on himself!”

“That’s awful,” said Frank, “But it could have been worse.”

“How in the hell,” asked his bewildered friend, “Could it have been worse?”

“Well,” replied Frank, “If it happened the night before, I’d be dead now!”

  1. This reminds me of a story of a 60 year old husband and wife walking on the beach that found a lamp.

    When they rubbed the lamp a genie appeared and offered them one wish each..

    The wife wished for a trip around the world for two. The genie was pleased and granted the wish..

    The husband wished for a woman 30 years younger. The genie was not pleased but granted the request and made the man 90 years old..

    —— and

    A 90 year old husband said to his 80 year old wife ” we haven’t had sex in some time. What do you think about having sex?” The wife thought about it and replied ”infrequently”.. The husband thought about it and asked ”is your answer one word or two?”..
