Laughter is the Best Medicine December 23, 2013

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.

Woodstock-&-Snoopy3A 65-year-old man walked into a crowded waiting room and approached the desk.   The Receptionist said, “Good morning, sir.  What are you seeing the Doctor for today?”

“There’s something wrong with my tally wacker.”

Irritated, the receptionist said, “You shouldn’t come into a crowded waiting room and say things like that.”

“Why not?  You asked me what was wrong and I told you.”

“Instead of causing embarrassment to other patients, you could have said there was something wrong with your ear and discussed the specific nature of your problem with the Doctor.  In private.”

The man nodded and walked out.  After a brief pause, he re-entered the waiting room and approached the receptionist.

The Receptionist nodded.  “Good morning, sir.  What are you seeing the Doctor for today?”

“There’s something wrong with my ear.”


The Receptionist offered a smug smile and said, “And what is wrong with your ear, Sir?”

“I can’t piss out of it.”

The waiting room erupted with laughter.

Mess with seniors and you’re going to lose.

Aah . . . that’s better!

The old ones are the best! This was a variation I hadn’t come across before.

I always play around with them a bit before posting ~ to unleash my Inner Editor. :mrgreen:

They do seem to have the true “lay of the land.” 😉

Haha! It seems as we get older filters wear out. My older son started helping this elderly lady by jogging with her pudgy dog. When we were out of town one weekend, my husband showed up to do it. It was only the third time she’d seen my husband and she asked if he was sure he could do it. He assured her he could. Then she said, “well, you could use a jog, you’re getting a little fat.”

It’s been good for a laugh 🙂

Hahaha! What an outspoken woman. Glad your husband took her comment in good graces.

My kinda guy!

nrhatch - December 23, 2013

Yup. He’s not taking IT from any body.

My godfather would have said something like that.. 😀

nrhatch - December 23, 2013

My grandfathers would never have been so blunt . . . but I’ve know some folks who would had handled the situation just like this guy.

7. colonialist - December 23, 2013

That took the piss out of her! 🙂

nrhatch - December 23, 2013

For sure!

Never forget that seniors are full of piss and vinegar!

nrhatch - December 23, 2013

Nothing like a curmudgeon with a twinkle in his eye . . . and a problem with his tinkle. :mrgreen:

9. Eric Alagan - December 24, 2013

LOL – Good one 🙂

nrhatch - December 24, 2013

Nothing like a good joke to lighten the mood.

10. Three Well Beings - December 24, 2013

Hahaha! I like the concluding line as much as the whole story. Don’t mess with seniors indeed! LOL!

nrhatch - December 24, 2013

They’ve learned a thing or two during their stay on this orb. 😀

I was going to apologise for coming late to this, but the comments made the visit all the more worthwhile!

Sometimes “delay” pays dividends. Have a Merry Christmas, GM.
