How about: An old lady goes round her Sister's and says "I've just been seduced by a hunky builder" .. you can keep the punchline then, no police station or rape mentioned. edit: or Doris boasts to her Sister that she's just pulled the hunk builder, the punchline still works but it's because she wasn't as alluring as she'd hoped so he might not even be a builder? ..

Why does the woman have to be old? And/or disappointingly unattractive?

How about:
A couple visit the fertility clinic. The wife says 'The problem is my husband's job. It's all he thinks about. When we're in bed he says 'I'm coming soon! I'm coming soon!' and he never finishes the job.'

She has to be old or disappointingly unattractive for the same reason a man would have to be old or disappointingly unattractive .. for both genders, we can now laugh despite their possible insecurities instead or because of them .. that's how that particular telling of the joke could be restructured .. your version of the structure would work, it's a faster version ..

"I'm coming .. I'M COMING!" shouted my husband .. than the phone went dead .. and that's why we're here today doctor."

You'd need to mention his job was a builder though, for the implied tardiness and unfinished work.

I don’t see why the woman has to be old or unattractive. The core of the joke is poking fun at builders for never finishing the job.
How about:
Shelia told her friend about an anonymous sexual encounter she had with a builder the previous night at a swinger’s club. “No conversation at all! We just eyed each other and went at it!”
“Well if there was no conversation how do you know he was a builder?” her friend asked.
etc etc

The point about the rape aspect, and the reason the victim has to be elderly, is that the rapist can't orgasm because the woman is not attractive enough. There's also a hint of boasting when the woman complains of rape because hey, she's old, but he STILL fancied her!

1974 called, it wants its joke back.

I saw this advert in a shop window that said: “Television for sale, £1, volume stuck on full.” I thought, “I can’t turn that down.”

As soon as Mrs. Jones arrived at the gates of heaven, she looked for her husband who had died several years before.
"Excuse me," she said, approaching Saint Peter, "but I'm looking for my husband. I wonder if you can help me."
"What is his name?" Peter asked.
"Harry ... Harry Jones," she replied.
Peter stroked his chin, then said, "There are many souls here who have that name. What else can you tell me about him?"
Blurting out the first thing that came to her mind, she said, "Well, the last thing he said before he died was that if I were ever unfaithful to him, he would turn in his grave."
"Ah!" Peter replied, "you're looking for Spinning Harry!"

After a vicar died and went to heaven, he noticed a minicab driver had been awarded a higher place than he.
"I don't understand," he complained to God. "I devoted my entire life to my congregation."
God explained to him, "Our policy here in heaven is to reward results. Now, was your congregation well attuned to you whenever you read a sermon?"
"Well," the vicar had to admit, "some in the congregation fell asleep from time to time."
"Exactly," said God, "and when people rode in this man's taxi, they not only stayed wake, they even prayed."

I just read a list of "The 100 Things To Do Before You Die". I was pretty surprised that "Yell for help" wasn't one of them.

My uncle died when we couldn't remember his blood type. As he died, he kept insisting for us to "be positive," but it's hard without him.

Reminds me of the "He died doing what he loved" obituaries.

So he loved freefalling 200 meters off sheer cliff?
He loved getting gored by a bull?
Drowning in a scuba failure?
Being mangled by Bigfoot?

As a responsible employer, all of my employees are in a two-week quarantine.

Productivity is through the roof since no one can leave the office.
