Thank you all for not criticizing this joke for its lack of logical rigor.

Firstly, if the husband's not finding his way home is an adequate test for Alzheimer's then the lab test would be unnecessary.

Secondly, in order for the joke to make sense, each man must have been scheduled for the same two tests an extremely unlikely event.

Nevertheless, the joke was funny without a lot of analysis.

It's not the illogic, Sam. It's the obvious contempt for the mentally impaired and for those with unfairly stigmatized diseases - and the women that love them - that bothers me.

I don't care how much it bothers you, you bleeding heart liberal pinko. Why don't you start a foundation for implanting GPSs in every Alzheimer's patient?

I noticed that the article for "pink" at wikipedia lists a slew of concepts with which the word pink is associated. Communist sympathizer is pointedly absent.

Aye Ted m'lad. I agree with you completely. These "jokes" have no regard for our basic, undeniable humanity.

And you, dear sir, make yourself out to be a cold-hearted misanthropic scrooge. Nonetheless, I believe you're a good person for a' that. Your ideologies I maun blame, but not you yourself.

Ack. Conflict.  *sad face*
   I thought the joke was funny and clever, even if I would've had relatives with either disease. It's only playful humor. And of course I'll smile at anything that belittles Obama and his cult-of-a-sort.
   Ack. No name-calling.  It forces one's reality to be accepted as true by another.  We, I believed, were out to stop that sort of thing.
   Hear, hear?
