If you’re lucky, you’re gonna get old. While aging isn’t something we go out of our way to vie for, it’s still something we aim for all the same. That said, wrinkles, failing body parts and grandchildren aren’t always things to look forward to. In fact, your many trips around the sun are just getting you closer to your eventual destination: death. Of course, this journey and its subsequent pitfalls is one that many comedians have explored.
Which led us to gather some of the funniest jokes about aging throughout pop culture...
