Turning-dependent jokes
I like to read old jokebooks and such, hence I often find jokes that don't fit that much into our time. This is a thread for them.

Here's one from 1T for a start:

A G.I. tells his wife: "It's time we give the kids the talk how the world really works!"

Wife: "No, please don't, they still so young and innocent!"

Husband (sighs): "Listen - we always told the kids that the good Lord provides the daily bread, Santa brings the gifts, and the stork delivers the babies, right?"

Wife: "Yes - and?"

Husband: "The kids are starting to believe that I was just a useless bum!"

That's typical for 1T - parents who believe in Dr. Spock, "we need idealistic kids" and all that, spoiling them rotten... and that's the result: ungrateful brats who don't know jack!
This innocence would be more typical of Silent than Boomer children.

Boomers had the protective umbrella of the GIs, who knew best after all.   Big Grin   Don't discount the formative times for the results that happened later.  Naïve in youth is not naivete in adulthood.
Intelligence is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom, but they all play well together.
