Default Chuckle for the Day

chuckle for the day
I hope it's okay with everyone to post this..
A few days ago I received a graded Cobb card in the mail I had purchased.
As the old saying goes, it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission.
So I showed the card to my wife asking her opinion?
How olds is the card she asked and I replied 106 years old.
With her great wisdom she remarked, so do you think you will look that good when your 106 years old
Very good point, I replied!

Choose an option for your response:

A ) You will always look good to me, and I don't need any third party to tell me that.
B ) I didn't marry you for your looks.

While we rail about card doctors and difficult to detect restorations, trimming, centering and coloring added to create high grade esthetically appealing old cards,

it is extremely doubtful to me that more than a handful of our wives and ladies would receive a numerical grade from a third party grader considering that

hair dye
plastic surgery
various implants
liposuction
make up
botox
etc

would disqualify the vast majority of our ladies from receiving a numerical grade.

At least an authentic, but altered "A" grade is esthetically more pleasing than a grade school "F"

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.
