Live to be 80

  1. A man visits his new GP and asks for a full medical. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, the doc told him he was doing "fairly well" for his age.
    A little concerned at the ambiguity of that comment, the patient asked: "Do you think I'll live to be 80?"
    "Well," said the doctor, "Do you smoke tobacco or drink alcohol?"
    "Oh no," the patient replied. "I've never done either."
    "Do you eat steak, beef or cheeses?" asked the doctor.
    "No," said the man, "I know all that red meat and dairy is very unhealthy."
    "Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing or
    "Nope," said the patient.
    "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or sexually fool around?" asked the GP.
    "No," he said. "I've never done any of those things."

    The doctor looked the patient up and down and asked: "Then why do you
    give a damn if you live to be 80?"
