Doctor Joke

Recommended Posts

A young doctor had moved out to a small community to replace a doctor who was retiring. The older doctor suggested that the young one accompany him on his rounds, so the community could become used to a new doctor.

 

At the first house a woman complains, 'I've been a little sick to my stomach.'

 

The older doctor says, 'Well, you've probably been overdoing the fresh fruit. Why not cut back on the amount you've been eating and see if that does the trick?'

 

As they left, the younger man said, 'you didn't even examine that woman? How'd you come to the diagnosis so quickly?'

 

'I didn't have to. You noticed I dropped my stethoscope on the floor in there? When I bent over to pick it up, I noticed a half-dozen banana peels in the bin. That was what probably was making her sick.'

 

'Huh,' the younger doctor said 'Pretty clever, I think I'll try that at the next house.'

 

Arriving at the next house, they spent several minutes talking with a younger woman. She complained that she just didn't have the energy she once did and said, 'I'm feeling terribly run down lately.'

 

'You've probably been doing too much work for the Church,' the younger doctor told her.

 

'Perhaps you should cut back a bit and see if that helps.'

 

As they left, the elder doctor said, 'I know that woman well, your diagnosis is almost certainly correct, but how did you arrive at it?'

 

'I did what you did at the last house, I dropped my stethoscope and when I bent down to retrieve it, I noticed the preacher under the bed.'

Yeah I'm doing ok thanks Artie and hope you are too :D

 

I just realised that maybe I should have said that it was a 'giggle' I needed tonight incase the others on here jump on it and think I meant I fancied a preacher hiding under my bed. :wink:

 

Saying that if I knew he was there then that's ok but if not ... eeek I wont sleep tonight incase my other half has planted him there for 'speed of service' due to any of my previous posts over the years :shock::lol:

 

Artie... if I go missing in the next two days you could be my only hope now :lol:
