I was thinking the other day that a lot of my blog postings deal with some pretty serious stuff. We’ve all got issues that we’re grappling with, but sometimes, don’t you think it’s good just to lighten up and have a laugh? I’ve heard it said that laughter is the best medicine. With that in mind, here’s a joke for you.
The distinction between “professional” and “amateur” is often very slight, often amounting to little more than the former being paid while the latter is not. This is in no small measure because professional arrogance has been known to become intolerable if left unchecked.
So it happened that a patient was making his first visit to the doctor. “And whom,” began the physician with utmost dignity, “Did you consult about your illness before you came to me?”
“Only the druggist down at the corner,” replied the patient.
The doctor could not conceal his contempt for the medical advice of those he deemed unqualified to practice medicine.
“And what sort of ridiculous advice did that fool give you?”
“He told me,” replied the patient innocently, “to come and see you.”
Enjoy your Sunday 🙂
