Why conversationalists fear getting old

My mother’s been in a convalescent home recovering from an operation. Two ageing convalescing men were at the next table when I had lunch there yesterday.
Man 1: It’s nice chicken, this.

Man 2: Do you listen to Terry Wogan?

Man 1: Not really, no.

Man 2: You should, he’s very good. He said that everything you eat tastes like chicken.

Man 1: What about sprouts? They don’t taste like chicken.

Man 2: No, it was meat. All the meat you try tastes like chicken.

Man 1: Pork doesn’t. I like pork.
And so on, really. Man 1 never succeeded in getting his point across.

That's what they pay Terry Wogan for.
