The marriage of an 80 year old man and a 

20 year old woman was the talk of the town. 

After being married a year, the couple went 

to the hospital for the birth of their first 

child. The attending nurse came out of the 

delivery room to congratulate the old 

gentleman and said, “This is amazing. How 

do you do it at your age?” The old man 

grinned and said, “You got to keep the old 

motor running.” The following year, the 

couple returned to the hospital for the birth 

of their second child. The same nurse was 

attending the delivery and again went out 

to congratulate the old gentleman. She 

said, “Sir, you are something! How do you 

manage it?” The old man grinned and said, 

“You gotta keep the old motor running.” A 

year later, the couple returned to the 

hospital for the birth of their third child.The 

same nurse was there for this birth also 

and, after the delivery, she once again 

approached the old gentleman, smiled, and 

said, “Well, you surely are something 

awesome! How do you do it?” The old man 

replied, “It’s like I’ve told you before, you 

gotta keep the old motor running.” The 

nurse, still smiling, patted him on the back

and said: 


“Well, I guess it’s time to change the oil. This one is black!”
