A Good Medical Joke

While working as a radiology technician in a hospital emergency room, I took some X-rays of a trauma patient and took the results to the senior radiologist, who studied the multiple fractures of the femurs and pelvis.

'What on earth happened to this patient?' he asked in astonishment.
'He fell out of a tree,' according to the report.

The radiologist wanted to know what the patient was doing up a tree.
'I'm not sure, but his paperwork states he works for Mark's Expert Tree Pruning Service.'

Gazing intently at the X-rays, the radiologist blinked and said, 'Cross out 'expert.'

Did you hear why Cyclops had to close his school?
He only had one pupil.

Who Pays the Medical Bill?Hospital Medical Bill Joke

Dan arrives at the private hospital in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico and is rushed in quickly for surgery after his appalling car crash.

The operation goes well and, as Dan regains consciousness, he is reassured by a nun, Sister Mary, who is waiting by his bed.

Now, Dan, you're going to be just fine,' says the nun, gently patting his hand. 'We do need to know, however, how you intend to pay for your stay here. Are you covered by insurance?'

'No, I'm not,' Dan whispers hoarsely.

'Then are you able to pay in cash?' persists Sister Mary.
'I'm afraid I cannot, Sister,' say Dan regretfully.

'Well now, do you have any close relatives?' Sister Mary questions sternly
'Only my sister in Puerto Vallarta,' Dan volunteers, 'But she's a humble spinster nun, like your good self.'

'Oh, I must correct you, Dan. Nuns are not spinsters: we are married to God.'
'Wonderful,' explodes Dan happily, 'In that case, please send the bill to my brother-in-law.'

Cautionary Tale

Girl, 12, Proves That Toilet Water Is Cleaner Than Ice CubesGirl, 12, proves that toilet water is cleaner than ice cubes

A Florida schoolgirl won top prize with a science project proving that toilet water is cleaner than ice in fast food restaurants.  Jasmine Roberts, 12, of New Tampa, tested her theory in five local restaurants, reports Tampa Bay's 10 News.

'My hypothesis was that the fast food restaurants' ice would contain more bacteria that the fast food restaurants' toilet water, 'she said.  Jasmine says at each restaurant she flushed the toilet once, then used sterile gloves to gather samples. She also collected ice from soda fountains and asked for cups of ice at drive thru windows. She then tested the samples at a lab.

Jasmine said: 'I found that 70% of the time, the ice from the fast food restaurant's contain more bacteria than the fast food restaurant's toilet water.'

Her project won the science fair at Benito Middle School, and she hopes to win the top prize at a regional science and engineering fair.
