Funny Old Cowboy Gunpowder Joke

 Funny Old Cowboy Gunpowder Joke

Grandpa Joe was a tough old cowboy with grizzled hair, chiseled features, and hands tougher than barbed wire.  I'd sit on his lap while he rocked in his favourite old chair on the porch, and he'd tell me again and again that his secret to living a long life was to sprinkle a pinch of gunpowder on his oatmeal every morning.

I stopped believing his tall tales when I grew up, but Grandpa Joe lived on for many years, enjoying perfect health until the ripe old age of 107.   He left behind 14 children, 30 grandchildren, 45 great-grandchildren, 25 great-great-grandchildren, and a 15-foot crater where the crematorium used to be.
