Weathering The Storm

January 18, 2009


Been a bit off form the last few days with blinding headaches accompanied by a major sense of humour failure.  I took to my bed on Friday evening, battening down the hatches until the worst was over.  While the storms raged outside yesterday, I had my own lightening bolts going through my head.  Today, the forecast is brighter bringing with it a welcome return of my sense of humour. You have been warned…

Two kids lined up for surgery are lying on trolleys outside the operating theatre.

The first kid leans over and asks, “What are you in here for?”

The second kid says, “I’m here to get my tonsils out and I’m very nervous.”

The first kid tries to reassure the other and says, “Oh! don’t worry. It’s very simple. I had that done when I was four. They put you to sleep, and when you wake up they give you lots of jelly and ice cream.”

The second kid, feeling a little better, then asks, “What are you here for?”

The first kid says, “A circumcision.”

The second kid says, “Whoa! I had that done when I was born. I couldn’t walk for a year!”
