The Hospital Bill August 16, 2014

Posted by nrhatch in Health & Wellness, Humor, Joke.

170px-Italienischer_Maler_des_17._Jahrhunderts_001A man suffered a serious heart attack while shopping in a store.

The store clerks called an ambulance when they saw him collapse to the floor.

The paramedics rushed the man to the nearest hospital where he had emergency open heart bypass surgery.

He awakened from the surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at the Catholic Hospital.

A nun was seated next to his bed holding a clipboard loaded with several forms.

Seeing he was awake, she asked him how he was going to pay for his treatment.

Groggy, he replied, “I don’t know.”

“Do you have health insurance?”

“No.  No health insurance.”


“Do you have money in the bank?”

“No.  No money in the bank.”

“Do you have a relative who could help you with the payments?”

“I have a spinster sister.  She’s a nun.”

At this, the nun became agitated.

With practiced authority, she announced, “Nuns are not spinsters! Nuns are married to God.”

The patient nodded, “Great!  Send the bill to my brother-in-law.”

Aah . . . that’s better!

Ha ha! Good one, Nancy! 🙂

It’s great to have relatives in high places. 😉

I love your humor!

It’s fun to share these Silly Saturday posts with an appreciative audience. Thanks, VG.

Thank you for the morning laugh. 😀

Glad you enjoyed. Have a fun-filled day, EMP.

Or sue the heart manufacturer. Wait. It’s the same dude!

“Hey, dude! You gave me a defective heart. I want my money back!”

“Read the small print.”

“What small print?”

“No refunds. No returns.”

Ha ha! I love the nun jokes.. 😀

nrhatch - August 16, 2014

Joe and Granny/Kathy have both sent me nun jokes ~ and they’re always good for a giggle.

The brother in law did a rushed job, me thinks. Six days was not long enough to get everything right! 3:)

nrhatch - August 16, 2014

At least not when you factor Free Will into the occasion.

Grannymar - August 16, 2014

I agree!

Good joke! Too bad we have such a Byzantine health care system. And, by the way, I love your photo choices.

nrhatch - August 16, 2014

Thanks, Nicki. They seemed to suit the tenor of the joke. And, yes, there’s a few things in the U.S. in need of fixing and fine tuning.

Nun so speechless as those nuns, haha

nrhatch - August 17, 2014

Next week’s joke will NOT feature nuns. Instead, a Scottish lad and lassie take center stage.

Great comeback. Hope they can find the mailing address 🙂

nrhatch - August 17, 2014

Maybe they can send it via Saint Nick:

c/o Santa Claus
The North Pole

That should do it. 😎

They could type out the invoice, burn it, and let the ashes float up into the air, you know, God-wards.

Yeah, I’m being silly. I think I am light-headed from lack of sleep. At least, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

nrhatch - August 20, 2014

Lack of sleep makes me feel light-hearted too ~ like burnt ashes floating skyward. Hope you catch up on zzz’s soon, Sandra.

Only seems fair he should pick up at least part of the tab. 🙂

nrhatch - August 20, 2014

Exactly! Of course, our Lifetime Warranty is a limited one and some of us push it to the limit with over-eating and under-exercising. Our just dessert from “just dessert.” 😉
