Heard any bad jokes lately?
I have. But my joke doesn't have a punch line. It's a saying that, if accepted as the truth, is surely no joking matter.
"Forty is the new 30."
It's supposed to indicate that people are not only living longer but also aging better. For too many middle-aged Americans, however, this is totally untrue.
For them, a more accurate saying is "Fifty is the new 75."
