I thought i would post a quote tha fits all us guys and really makes me laugh and sort of sums us all up.
If you know a good quote or story then please add it on, lets all have a laugh for once turn

This is from a Scottish comedian, Billy Connely, with his views on getting older tho i know it has other sources ...

No 1, Never pass up the chance to have a pee when passing a toilet

No 2, Never waste an erection, even if you are on your own

No 3, Never trust a fart ( i found this out the hard way, wet trousers )

Have a laugh today and everyday, Bob.

#3 was a little too close to home. When I started RT one of the things the cute tech told me was "Don't fart. Just don't fart" with a smile on her face. 
 
Pity was, she was right cry

Don't fart anymore unless I want to pee in my pants. The only time I fart now is when I am taking a pee it the toilet.

I found this one on a Cancer website that deals with it by humour, though i think my surgeon must have found it first cos it sort of applies to me .........

A man elects to have a prostatectomy and asks the surgeon to try to spare the nerves that produce an erection. Well, he goes into surgery and wakes up in the recovery room and sees his doctor.
Man: So how did it go?
Doctor: I've got good news and bad news.
Man: Give me the good news first.
Doctor: We were able to save the nerves.
Man: That's great news! What's the bad news?
Doctor: They're under your pillow.

Keep laughing cos a laugh a day keeps the doctor away, Bob.
