Your Friday Smile!

Sorry for the late post of “Friday Smile”, but I have a valid excuse. Yesterday afternoon I had a lumbar puncture (a.k.a. “spinal tap”, the procedure, not the band or movie) done, and had really bad headache after that. Today is better, lighter headache.

Without further delay, here’s your Friday Smile! Enjoy!


***

The phone rings and the lady of the house answers, "Hello".

"Mrs. Ward, please."

"Speaking."

"Mrs. Ward, this is Doctor Jones at the Medical Testing Laboratory. When your doctor sent your husband's specimen to the lab for testing yesterday, a specimen from another Mr. Ward arrived as well, and we are now uncertain which one is your husband's. Frankly the results are either bad or terrible."

"What do you mean?" Mrs. Ward asks nervously.

"Well one of the specimens tested positive for Alzheimer's and the other one tested positive for AIDS. We can't tell which is your husband's."

"That's dreadful! Can't you do the test again?" questioned Mrs. Ward.

"Normally we can, but Medicare will only pay for these expensive tests once."

"Well, what am I supposed to do now?"

"The people at Medicare recommend that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town. If he finds his way home, don't sleep with him."

Have a great weekend everyone!
Don't forget the birth day thing...
Speaking of which, it's Galoot's birthday today, go over to wish him well!

“spinal tap”

Is it wrong of me that I immediately pictured maple sap harvesting?

Sorry about the spinal tap. That does NOT sound fun.

Thanks for the smile!

Sorry honey, I have a headache? Uh huh, sure. You're tired of us aren't you? Fine, be that way.

I've heard that joke before, very funny.

Hope you're feeling better :)

Kara said...

So...can your headache be turned up to 11?

Oh god, I should be banned for that one.

Purple Pigeon said...

marius: It's too cold for maple sap yet! Soon... just like my results I hope! ;-)

lizgwiz: It wasn't!

astronaut: I would never use that excuse, 'cause in doing so I also "punish" myself!

drowsey: Thanks!

nicotine: Thank you!

attila: Thanks, I had an epidural before and it was nothing compared to this!

pigeon: thanks!

kara: Sorry I don't get it?! Might be due to lack of brain fluid or something...

pigeon: Can you explain it, 'cause I really don't get it... :-(

lol, it was in the film Spinal Tap, where they have all the volume controls on their amps going up to 11 instead of the standard 10, because it is 'one louder' than all the other amps in the world. Then someone asked why not just make the amps so that ten is the loudest, and they were utterly baffled. Classic.


Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.
