Humor

Snotty Receptionist

 

  Yesterday I had an appointment to see the urologist for a prostate exam. Of course I was a bit on edge because all my friends have either gone under the knife or had those pellets implanted.

 

  The waiting room was filled with patients.  As I approached the receptionist's desk, I noticed that she was a large, unfriendly woman who looked like a Sumo wrestler.

  I gave her my name, and in a very loud voice, she said,

 "YES, I HAVE YOUR NAME HERE. YOU WANT TO SEE THE DOCTOR ABOUT IMPOTENCE, RIGHT?"

All the patients in the waiting room snapped their heads around to look at me, a now very embarrassed man. But as usual, I recovered quickly, and in an equally loud voice replied,

 "NO, I'VE COME TO INQUIRE ABOUT A SEX CHANGE OPERATION, BUT I DON'T WANT THE SAME DOCTOR THAT DID YOURS."

The room erupted in applause!

*****************

 Medical Confusion


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

"Hello."

"Mrs. Sanders, please."

"Speaking."

"Mrs. Sanders, this is Doctor Jones at Saint Agnes Laboratory.
 

When your husband's doctor sent his biopsy to the lab last week, a biopsy from another Mr. Sanders arrived as well.

 

We are now uncertain which one belongs to your husband.  Frankly, either way the results are not too good."

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

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

"That's dreadful!  Can you do the test again?" questioned Mrs.Sanders.

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

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

"The MEDICARE Help desk recommends that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town.

I
f he finds his way home, don't sleep with him. 



 

 

 

 

February Breakfast Social Event Summary

(Posted February 20, 2017)

 

About 50 plus members and guests enjoyed a breakfast buffet and followed by a very entertaining comical magician, Zaniac, who kept most laughing throughout his show. Three members assisted Zaniac with his presentation that made it even better.  They were Cdr Steve Corcoran, Cob Wayne Peterson and John Gardner .

 

Steve held a brief business meeting outlining future events.
