Healthcare Surprises

Well, my friends, as periodically seems to happen, several projects have ganged up on me and I covet the time I would normally spend finding something interesting for you.

So just the joke today. Probably tomorrow, too. Apologies to all.



If your name is "Larry," your doctor's name must also be "Larry."

Each page coated with a thin film of Vicks Vaporub.

Puts a 10-minute time limit on any doctor keeping you waiting in your undies.

Requires every hospital to employ at least one doctor as "hunky" as the ones on TV.

Prohibits insurance companies from calling "More Cowbell Fever" a pre-existing condition.

Doctors will now be able to prescribe laughter as the best medicine.

Leeches are back!

Does not cover your favorite sports team choking at the last minute.
