Once upon a time there was an old man in a private room in the general hospital.

The nurse entered his room and he asked her, “Nurse, are my testicles black”?

“Sir behave yourself and go to sleep” she replied.

Again he asked “Are my testicles black”?

“Look you’ll have to ask the doctor. Now go to sleep” she replied.

By now the old man was very irate and shouted, “Are my testicles black”?

The nurse decided that in order to keep him quiet she would have a look. Well what harm could it do?

She pulled back his blankets, pulled down his pyjamas, lifted the offending articles in her hands; she turned them this way and that.  She gently examined them and then pulled his pyjamas up and said,

“Sir your testicles are fine”

The old man looked at her with tears in his eyes and said,
“Thank you, you really are a wonderful nurse but will you please take the cotton wool out of your ears and listen to me. I said ARE MY TEST RESULTS BACK”

This is a true story, and if it isn’t, well it should be.

Start the New Year with a smile :)


  1. You don't get services like that anymore !

  2. Hi there Mr Heron :)

    More's the pity. However, that's Health Service cuts for you. A decline in public service that always hits those less able to stand up for themselves :)

    Keep smiling.
