Reminds me of the joke about the old guy who goes to a brothel

The lady says,
Hi old timer. Things may have changed in the last 40 years and you have to wear a rubber now.

He pulls out some cotton wool and puts it in his ears and up his nose

She says
What’s that for?

He replies.
Love, there are two things I hate in this world.
1. the sound of woman screaming and 2. the smell of burning rubber.
