A man had 50 yard line tickets for the Super Bowl. As he sits down,a short man comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him. "No," he says, "The seat is empty." "This is incredible," said the short man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl, the biggest sporting event in the world, and not use it?" He says, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Super bowl we haven't been to together since we got married in 1987." "Oh ... I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't you find someone else -- a friend or relative, or even a neighbor to take the seat?". The man shakes his head. "No, they're all at the funeral."

So which newspaper did you get this out of?

This wasn't supposed to be a joke or something was it?

why "a short man?"
why not just "a guy" or "a man with red hair" or "some dude wearing bunny slippers"?
am I missing something?

I dunno.
I come across these and cut and paste. This particular one I found in some forums for farmers.

Talk about hijacked threads. I sent this joke to five people here at work. One guy has been in the USA since 1975, but is originally from Italy. So he goes off, at how the joke says
the biggest sporting event in the world

and how Soccer is bigger. Let's say he got a mouthful from everyone else.
