In a lovely gift shop with my 10 year old who is scrolling though one of those gift card holders that "spins around". He then LOUDLY reads to the store -

patient: "Doctor, every time I sneeze I have an orgasm"
Doctor: "what are you taking for it?"
Patient "pepper!"

AIBU in thinking this was a bit on the rude side to have at waist height, front and centre on "one of those spinny card things"?
Or am I just a prude?

Well...he's ten...he'll have heard worse in the playground! Nothing wrong with the's a crap joke sure but it's not racist or sexist.

Get pissed off at the sexist mags on display rather than the stupid cards

I can't get upset over it tbh

It would only upset me from the point of view that it's 40 years out of date and about as funny as stepping in fresh cat shit with bare feet after a hot bath!

I would have pissed myself laughing and made a sharp exit actually op grin
leaving 10 year old in there

He's 10! Have a chat with him if you haven't already.

Crap joke but not unreasonable. And yes, he'll have heard far worse in the playground. If you haven't already talked to him about sex, masturbation etc, I'd make a start smile

Arrgh, I knew it!
1) I am more of a prude than I thought
2) should have left him and pretended he "wasn't with me"
3) think I will avoid blackpool or any other seaside resort with various rude blow up items

Before he gets his education courtesy of the Internet!

Can someone explain the joke to me please? I genuinely don't get it.

ymba: usually 'what are you taking for it' suggests a medicine to cure an ailment, in this case the patient is actually trying to make themselves sneeze more (and have more orgasms) by inhaling pepper.

ymba the patient is taking pepper to make them sneeze so they can keep having orgasms!

Thank you both for explaining. I'm often the killer of jokes as I have a very literal understanding of things.
