Monday Mirth


Margie received a bill from the hospital for her recent surgery, and was astonished to see a $1200 fee for the anaesthetist. She called his office to demand an explanation.

'Is this some kind of mistake?' Margie asked when she got the doctor on the phone.

'No, not at all,' the doctor said calmly.

'Well,' said Margie, 'that's awfully costly for knocking someone out.'

'Not at all,' replied the doctor. 'I knock you out for free. The 1200 dollars is for bringing you back around.'



Did you hear about the cat who drank 5 bowls of water
and set a new lap record?




Not only In America but the UK too

.....can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.


......are there handicap parking places in front of a skating rink.



......do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.



......do people order double cheese burgers, large fries, and a diet coke.



......do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.



......do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.



......do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.



......do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.



.....do we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.



......do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

"do we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'."
