Joke of The Day

Twin sisters in St.Luke's Nursing Home were turning one hundred years old. The editor of the local newspaper told a photographer to get over there and take pictures of the two 100 year old twins. One of the twins was hard of hearing and the other could hear quite well...
Once the photographer arrived, he asked the sisters to sit on the sofa.The nearly-deaf sister said to her twin, "WHAT DID HE SAY?"
"Now get a little closer together," said the cameraman.
So they wiggled up close to each other.
"Just hold on for a bit longer, I've got to focus a little,"
said the photographer.Yet again, "WHAT DID HE SAY?"
"HE SAYS HE'S GONNA FOCUS!"With a big grin, the nearly-deaf
twin shouted out, "OH MY GOD - BOTH OF US?"
