The Old Kyle.

My stepfather likes to retell jokes, frequently bad jokes. I eventually figured out that the entertainment value in a bad joke is not in the hearing but in the telling. The funny part is the strained groans from the listeners.

Anyway, I've had this exchange with him a few times.

Him: What? The old Kyle would never do something like that!

Me: The old Kyle was a lot younger than the new Kyle.

Somehow this dual meaning of "old" keeps entertaining me.
