    Default joke

    Hi

    the old joke about the razor: "Just try and shake your head ten years from now"

    Does anybody what it means?

    Thanx.

    I don't know, unless the razor will cut your throat.

    Well, may be. By the way, I've found a joke concerning razor and head shaking, but still I don't understand about "ten years from now".

    The two fellows of the sharp razor culture, - one slicing at the other - and the fellow says - "Hah! You missed me", and the first fellow says - "Yeah, well just shake your head".

    It's so sharp that it has cut the person head without them realising it- if the first fellow shakes his head it'll fall off. It doesn't strike me as a very funny joke.
