Back Alley Memories
I was reminded me of an old joke from another Reddit post:
A very elderly couple is seated at a table in a bar. The woman looks over to the man, holding his hand and says, "Do you remember meeting me for the first time right here 50 years ago?"
The husband replies, "Yes dear."
The wife says, "Do you remember what we did afterwards?"
The husband enthusiastically says, "How could I forget! It was magical!"
The wife looks at her husband lovingly, "You want to do it again? Let's go to the back alley like we did all those years ago"
The husband hails the waiter, pays the bill, and they slowly pack their things. A police officer, overhearing their conversation thinks to himself, "The back alley? That can't be safe! I've gotta make sure they're okay back there." The officer secretly follows the couple out and stands on the corner peaking around it to make sure they aren't in any danger.
The old woman raises her dress and takes off her panties bending over to the fence to lean on, the old man slowly drops his trousers. He carefully grabs her by the hips and she leans forward and then suddenly...
BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM! They're banging like two jackhammers colliding! It's like watching a shark frenzy with two sharks hungrily thrashing against one another! The Officer looks on incredulous! This goes on for several minutes and the couple falls over panting in a steamy pile of exhaustion. The officer leaps out from around the corner, "Holy hell! You guys are AMAZING How on earth do you stay so fit for something like that?!"
The old man weakly looks over to him and says, "50 years ago, this fence wasn't electric!"
Sheldon Cooper has been accused of being a giant praying mantis, an extra-terrestrial and “not a real boy.” All of this stems from the fact that he takes a stoic, literal approach to understanding human emotions.
As we saw in the last entry, that’s definitely not one of his strong points. He tries his best to study and explain emotions, though. In “The Gorilla Experiment,” Penny asks him to try and teach he physics, which… goes as well as you can imagine. At one point, Penny starts to cry, and when Sheldon asks why, she says, “because I’m stupid!” Dr. Cooper’s response? “That's no reason to cry. One cries because one is sad. For example, I cry because others are stupid, and it makes me sad.” Way to boil the human experience down to science as always, Sheldon.
