Ted’s Joke – Marry who you want

“Dad I want to get married,” said the son.

“Who do you want to marry?” asked the father.

“I want to marry Gertie Green,” said the son.

“You can’t marry Gertie.  You don’t know it but she’s your half-sister.  When I was a lad I had a bike and I got around a bit,” the father said.

“Well, in that case,” said the son, “I’ll marry Wanda White.”

“You can forget her, too,” said the father.  “She’s also your half-sister.”

Heartbroken and despondent, the son wandered off.

“What’s up with you?” asked his mother.

The son shrugged.  “I wanted to marry Gertie Green, but dad just told me she’s my half-sister,” he said.

“Then I told him I’d marry Wanda White, but he said she’s my half-sister, too.  He says he had a bike when he was young and he got around a bit.”

“Never mind,” said the mother.

“You marry who you like.  Your dad’s not the only one who had a bike when he was young, and he’s not your father, either.”
