Humor from Korean economic dailies:

Seoul Kyungje

Mr. and Mrs. Smith had just reached the airport in the nick of time to catch the plane for their two-week's vacation in Majorca.

"I wish we'd brought the piano with us," said Mr. Smith.

"What on earth for?" asked his wife.

He said, "I've left the tickets on it."

Hankuk Kyungje

Advantages of older women

-An older woman will never wake you up in the middle of the night and ask you, “What are you thinking?” An older woman doesn’t care what you think.

-An older woman always carries a condom in her purse. A younger woman is simply hoping the guy might have one on him.

-An older woman is a cheaper date. A younger woman will cost you 12 beers, but an older woman will sleep with you after a cup of herbal tea.

-Older women can run faster because they’re always wearing sensible shoes.
