Father's Pride (a joke)

(I’m spared from this… I only have daughters…!)


Four friends, who hadn't seen each other in 30 years, reunited at a party.

After several drinks, one of the men had to use the rest room.

Those who remained talked about their kids.


The first guy said, "My son is my pride and joy. He started working

at a successful company at the bottom of the barrel. He studied

Economics and Business Administration and soon began to climb

the corporate ladder and now he's the president of the company.

He became so rich that he gave his best friend a top-of-the-line

Mercedes for his birthday."


The second guy said, "Darn, that's terrific! My son is also my pride and joy.

He started working for a big airline, and then went to flight school

to become a pilot. Eventually he became a partner in the company,

where he owns the majority of its assets. He's so rich that he gave

his best friend a brand new jet for his birthday."


The third man said: "Well, that's terrific! My son studied in the

best universities and became an engineer. Then he started

his own construction company and is now a multimillionaire.

He also gave away something very nice and expensive

to his best friend for his birthday: a 30,000 square foot mansion."


The three friends congratulated each other just as the fourth

returned from the restroom and asked:

"What are all the congratulations for?"

One of the three said:

"We were talking about the pride we feel for the successes of our sons.

What about your son?"


The fourth man replied:

"My son is gay and makes a living dancing as a stripper at a nightclub."

The three friends said: "What a shame... what a disappointment."


The fourth man replied: "No, I'm not ashamed. He's my son and I love him.

And he hasn't done too badly either. His birthday was two weeks ago,

and he received a beautiful 30,000 square foot mansion, a brand new jet

and a top-of-the-line Mercedes from his three boyfriends.
