Friday Wisdom – Medical

This week I went in for routine blood tests so naturally the medical world is on my mind.

According to my doctor 9 out of 10 injections are in vein.

The nurse told me this great amnesia joke, but I can’t remember it.

I drove past the rehab clinic and there was a sign on the lawn, “Keep off the Grass.”

They wheeled her into the operating room, and then she had a change of heart.

People who don’t find jokes funny are suffering from irony deficiency.

Bad timing defined: having a heart attack during a game of charades.

Did you hear about the book that went to a doctor? It had a broken spine.

The medical student made so many rash decisions that he became a dermatologist.

I lied to the X-ray technician, but she could see right through me.

I called my doctor and said that I feel run down. She asked why and I said, “Because of the tire tracks on my legs.”

I told my doctor that I thought my hair was thinning. “Good,” he replied, “No one wants fat hair.”

They said that jogging could add years to my life. So I started jogging and they’re right – I feel ten years older already.

    As always, I really enjoyed that. When I was last in hospital, I found out the hard way that the lady taking the blood test had heard every vampire joke in a very large book.
