Ernie had a large pond in the back, fixed up nicely; picnic tables, barbecue pit, horseshoe courts, along with some apple and peach trees. The pond was properly shaped and fixed up for swimming when it was built.
One evening, Ernie decided to go down to the pond and look it over. He hadn't been there for a while. He grabbed a five gallon bucket to
bring back some fruit.
As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young thangs skinny dipping
in his pond. As he approached, he made the women aware of his presence. At once, they all went to the deep end. One of the women shouted to
him, "We're not coming out until you leave."
Ernie frowned, "I did not come down here to watch you sweet young thangs swim naked, or to make you get out of the pond naked."
Holding up the bucket, he said, "I'm here to feed the alligator."
Moral: Old men can still think fast!
