The Umbrella

A 90-year-old man said to his doctor, "I've never felt better. I have an 18-year-old bride who is pregnant with my child. What do you think about that?"
The doctor considered his question for a minute and then said, "I have an elderly friend who is a hunter and never misses a season. One day when he was going out in a bit of a hurry, he accidentally picked up his umbrella instead of his gun. When he got to the Creek, he saw a beaver sitting beside the stream. He raised his umbrella and went, 'bang, bang' and the beaver fell dead. What do you think of that?"
The 90-year-old said, "I'd say somebody else shot that beaver."

The doctor replied, "My point exactly."  

Why makes this Joke funny?

Setup: The 90-year-old man boasts about his virility by mentioning that his young bride is pregnant with his child, clearly expecting the doctor to be impressed or surprised.

Doctor`s Analogy: The doctor then tells a seemingly unrelated story about a hunter who mistakenly takes an umbrella instead of a gun on a hunting trip. When the hunter "shoots" with the umbrella, a beaver falls dead. The doctor uses this story to suggest that although the hunter took action (just like the 90-year-old man did), the result (the dead beaver or the pregnancy) might not be directly because of his action.

Punchline: The 90-year-old man`s response, "I`d say somebody else shot that beaver," acknowledges the implication of the doctor`s story. The man understands that the doctor is suggesting someone else might be the father of his young bride`s child, even if he believes he is responsible.

Doctor`s Confirmation: "My point exactly" is the doctor confirming the elderly man`s interpretation, emphasizing the implied message without directly stating it.

The humor arises from the indirect way the doctor communicates his skepticism, the clever use of the hunting analogy, and the old man`s realization of the implied message. It also plays with the theme of older age vs. youthful virility in a humorous way.
