Anderson was in the hospital and it was time for lunch. He looks at his lunch and says, ”I don’t like chicken soup, bring something else.”
The hospital worker said, ”It’s good for you, the doctor said you should have it.” Regardless, the patient refused to eat it.
That night, a patient in the room with Anderson had a bad stomach pain so the nurses came in to give him an enema. By mistake, they gave the enema to Joe.
The following week, when he was leaving the hospital, a new patient asked him how he liked the hospital. He told him, ”Well, the hospital itself is pretty good, but they’re very strict about their food. when they bring up chicken soup you better eat it, or else they’ll come back in the middle of the night and shove it up your behind!”
A married couple went to he hospital to have their baby delivered. Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother’s labour pain to the father.
He asked if they were willing to try it out. They were both very much in favour of it. The doctor set the pain transfer dial to 10% for starters, explaining that even 10% was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced before.
But as the labour progressed, the husband felt fine and asked the doctor to go ahead and bump it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20% pain transfer. The husband was still feeling fine.
The doctor checked the husband’s blood pressure and was amazed at how well he was doing. At this point they decided to try for 50%.
The husband continued to feel quite well. Since it was obviously helping out his wife considerably, the husband encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him.
The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain.
She and her husband were ecstatic.
When they got home, the mailman was lying dead on their porch.
A man has been in hospital for a month. One day, he’s so sick and tired of being in hospital that he sneaks out and down to the nearest pub. He orders a beer and swallows the lot in ten seconds flat. He then orders a second beer and does the same. Then a third and a fourth. As he orders a fifth beer, he says to the barman, ”I shouldn’t be drinking this with what I’ve got.” The barman gasps in alarm, ”What have you got?” To which the hospital patient replies, ”About fifty cents.”--1+
Jones is driving past the state mental hospital when his left rear tire suffers a flat. While Jones is changing the tire, another car goes by, running over the hub cap in which Jones was keeping the lug nuts. the nuts are all knocked into a nearby storm drain. Jones is at a loss for what to do and is about to go call a cab when he hears a shout from behind the hospital fence, where one of the inmates has been watching the whole thing. ”Hey, pal! Why don’t you just take one lug nut off each of the other three wheels? That’ll hold your tires on until you can get to a garage or something.” Jones is startled by the patient’s seeming rationality, but realizes the plan will work, and installs the spare tire without incident. Before he leaves, he calls back to the patient. ”You know, that was pretty sharp thinking. Why do they have you in there?” The patient smiles and says, ”I’m in here because I’m crazy, not because I’m stupid.”-39+
A handsome young lad went into the hospital for some minor surgery and the day after the procedure, a friend stopped by to see how the guy was doing.
The friend was amazed at the number of Nurses who entered the room in short intervals with refreshments, offers to fluff his pillows, make the bed, give back rubs, etc. ”Why all the attention?” the friend asked. ”You look fine to me.”
”I know!” grinned the patient. ”But the Nurses kinda formed a little fan club when they all heard that my circumcision required thirty-seven stitches.”
