When my wife went in the hospital for surgery several years ago, a rule prohibited children under 12 from visiting patients. Our 11-year-old seemed to understand, but our six-year-old took the restriction very hard.
We discovered why she was so unusually upset when we heard her talking to her mother on the phone for the first time. As she said goodbye, she tearfully exclaimed, ”I’ll see you when I’m 12, mom!”
Two little kids are in a hospital, lying on stretchers next to each other, outside the operating room. The first kid leans over and asks, ”What are you in here for?”
The second kid says, ”I’m in here to get my tonsils out and I’m a little nervous.”
The first kid says, ”You’ve got nothing to worry about. I had that done when I was four. They put you to sleep, and when you wake up they give you lots of Jell-O and ice cream. It’s a breeze!”
The second kid then asks, ”What are you here for?”
The first kid says, ”A circumcision.”
The second kid says, ”Whoa! I had that done when I was born. I couldn’t walk for a year!”
One day in the hospital, two little boys were lying on stretchers next to each other outside of the operating room. The first boy leans over and asks, ”What are you in for?” ”I’m here to get my tonsils out and I’m nervous,” the second boy says. The first kid says, ”You`ve got nothing to worry about! I had that done when I was four. They put you to sleep and when you wake up they give you lots of ice cream andJell-O. It’s a breeze!” ”Well what are you here for?” the second kid asks.” A circumcision.” The first kid replys woefully. The second kid says ”Wow! I had that done when I was born and I couldn’t walk for a year!”-0+
A girl walked up to the information desk in a hospital and asked to see the ”upturn”.
”I think you mean the ’intern,’ don’t you?” asked the nurse on duty.
”Yes,” said the girl. ”I want to have a ’contamination.’ ”
”You mean ’examination,’ ” the nurse corrected her.
”Well I want to go to the ’fraternity ward’, anyway.”
”I’m sure you mean the maternity ward.”
To which the girl replied, ”Upturn, intern; contamination, examination; fraternity, maternity.... what’s the difference? All I know is I haven’t demonstrated in two months and I think I’m stagnant.”
A doctor is standing in the hall of a hospital talking with a colleague when suddenly one of his patients runs down the hall in his hospital gown screaming at the top of his lungs.
Right behind the patient is a nurse carrying a pan of steaming, boiling-hot water, obviously chasing the patient.
The doctor interrupts his conversation with his colleague and shouts to the chasing nurse, ”Miss Jones, I said ’Prick his boil!’ ”
