Is this realistic? Something “fun” to look forward to in old age? I get that it would be harder to jog quickly, but why would it be even slower than walking?
This isn’t a CIDU, but: does this resonate with anyone? Or make sense for anyone you know in the 21st century? The idea that you’d need to keep it secret from your spouse that you spent some time with a member of the opposite gender seems really, really, really outdated.

From Jack Applin who says “I accept that fashion and fascin’ are homophones, but I don’t know what fascin’ is.”
A friendly reminder to avoid political arguments; we’re just trying to understand the comic.
This isn’t really a CIDU. Given this comic’s schtick, I assume the joke is that he’s attacking Loretta because she’s taken something classy (classical music), and made it dumb and low class by playing it on the bongos. But as I commented to SingaporeBill when he sent this in, it just seems like a really strange and difficult-to-understand attack, because playing on the bongos and making it sound like “Flight of the Bumblebee” would actually be pretty impressive.
