Late at night, 18yr old Johnny crept down the stairs dressed in smart trousers and shirt and carrying a torch. He walked past the lounge, his father slouched across his chair snoring. As he opened the back door his mother was just coming in from taking out the rubbish, "Johnny?, what are you doing? she asked, "I'm going courting mother" he said. "Well ok, but, what's with the torch?, when i used to go courting in my youth i never needed a torch", Johnny smiled and said "And look what YOU ended up with!"
