“Here,” says the nurse, handing the patient a urine specimen container. “The bathroom’s over there.” A few minutes later, the patient comes out of the bathroom.
“Thanks,” he says, returning the empty container. “But there was
a toilet in there, so I didn’t need
this after all.”—Travis Stork, MD, Nashville, Tennessee
Overheard in the doctor’s office

“Third husband?” I asked. “How many have you had?”
“Two.” —Leon Pendracky, OD, Avella, Pennsylvania
