~ For Gerry Hamilton ~
Hello and Good Evening.
My name is Carol Leonard and I am a midwife. Actually, Christine and I were the first two midwives practicing in Concord. Gerry Hamilton was my OB backup since I was a kid really…since I was 26 years old. I’m not going to tell you how old I am now…but that was like 400 years ago.
But that’s not why I am here tonight. I am here because Gerry was also my buddy. I am here because tonight is the most inappropriate time to tell a dirty joke. So in true Hamilton tradition, I am going to honor Gerry by launching into an off-color joke…oblivious to the fact that it may make some people pass-out.
Forgive me Christine. Gerry, this one’s for you…
So, there is this skinny little old lady in a nursing home. She’s naked and she’s wearing a purple cape. She keeps running up to groups of little old men…and she flashes them, yelling,
“SUPER PUSSY!” and then she runs away.
She runs up to some more little old men, and yells,
“SUPER PUSSY!” and then she runs away again.
Finally, she runs up to a little old man who has had quadruple by-pass surgery and she flashes him, and yells,
and he looks at her (scrunches up face–disgusted) and he says,
“I’LL HAVE THE SOUP.”
GODSPEED GERRY! WE LOVE YOU!
