Joke Tuesday.

1. A man dashes into the A&E dept. and yells, 'My wife's going to have
her baby in the taxi.'

I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the taxi, lifted the lady's dress
and began to take off her underwear. Suddenly after protests from the
lady I noticed that there were several taxi's, and I was in the wrong

2. At the beginning of my shift, I placed a stethoscope on an elderly
and slightly deaf female patient's anterior chest wall. 'Big breaths,'
I instructed.
'Yes, they used to be,'. .. . replied the patient.

3. One day I had to be the bearer of bad news when I told a wife that
her husband had died of a massive myocardial infarct. Not more than
five minutes later, I heard her on her mobile phone reporting to the
rest of the family that he had died of a 'massive internal fart.'

Submitted by Dr. Susan Steinberg Royal London Hosp.

4. During a patient's two week follow-up appointment, he told me that
he was having trouble with one of his medications.
'Which one ?'. . ... I asked.
'The patch; the Nurse told me to put on a new one every six hours and
now I'm running out of places to put it
I had him quickly undress and discovered what I hoped I wouldn't see.
Yes, the man had over fifty patches on his body! Now, the instructions
include removal of the old patch before applying a new one.

Submitted by Dr. Rebecca St. Clair, Norfolk General.

5. While acquainting myself with a new elderly patient, I asked 'How
long have you been bedridden?'
After a look of complete confusion she answered, 'Why, not for about
twenty years - when my husband was still alive.'

Submitted by Dr. Steven Swanson- Maidenhead Royal Kent .

6. I was performing rounds at the hospital one morning and while
checking up on a man I asked, 'So how was your breakfast this morning?'
'It's very good except for the Kentucky Jelly. I can't seem to get used
to the taste,' Bob replied.
I then asked to see the jelly and Bob produced a foil packet labelled
'KY Jelly.'

Submitted by Dr. Leonard J. Brandon. Bristol Infirmary.

7. A nurse was on duty in the A&E when a young woman with purple hair
styled into a punk rocker Mohawk, sporting a variety of tattoos, and
wearing strange clothing, entered. It was quickly determined that the
patient had acute appendicitis, so she was scheduled for an immediate
operation. When she was completely disrobed on the operating table, the
staff noticed that her pubic hair had been dyed green, and above it
there was a tattoo that read, 'Keep off the grass.' Once the surgery
completed, the surgeon wrote a short note on the patient's
dressing, which said
'Sorry, had to mow the lawn.'

Why have you put on the comment moderation thingy?

john.g. said...

Have been pestered by some loon in Asia!

Dumdad said...


Was that a blogger called "ric" and posted comments in Chinese? Yesterday I received 12 such comments scattered throughout my posts, some dating back years. Weird. If it happens again, I might have to do what you're doing.

No, anonymous!

You won't "approve" this comment I bet!

You're bloody crackers, and should be locked up for your own safety. If I had a son like you I would shoot myself, and then shoot you!

See you on Sunday, if you get really lucky!

As to those jokes . . .pathetic!

John: I dropped comment moderation and got your Asian loon but a friendly commenter had translated it and advised me to delete which I have done.
My favourite of your post is #2 - big breaths!

john.g. said...

Keith, you would shoot yourself, then me! How?

Kila said...

Keith needs help.

I heard that 2nd one a couple of years ago, and told it to my doctor the last time I was in for a checkup. She LOL'd! The nurses also love it when I wear my t-shirt from Spamalot, which says "I'm not dead yet."
