Reading a recent post by OTJ brought to mind an old joke, which I probably have told you before but here it is again because I can’t remember if I told it before and I also can’t remember too many of those marvelous jokes that roll around in my mind periodically. Not to say that this is a marvelous one, but for now it is one I remember.
And old lady was visiting her doctor for a normal checkup, and at the end he asked if she had any questions or problems. She thought a second, then told the doctor that yes, she did have a problem, but was not too worried about it. She said that for years she has had a problem with intestinal gas, and was almost continuously passing it around, and in fact was passing some through the whole examination. But it didn’t really bother her as she was quiet about it, and it did not smell. The doctor thought about it, and then wrote her a prescription, telling her to take the pills and come back in two weeks.
Two weeks went by and she was back in the doctor’s office. He asked how she was, and she complained about those pills. Since taking those pills her gas now had become really stinky, and she was getting embarrassed to go out in public, but at least nobody heard her and so she could avoid the blame. The doctor thought a bit, and then said:
“Well, now that we’ve cleared up your sinuses let’s work on your hearing.”
