Don’t Be Alarmed

March 24, 2009


A middle-aged woman seemed sheepish as she visited her gynaecologist.

“Come now,” coaxed the doctor, “you’ve been seeing me for years! You can tell me anything.”

“But, this one is kind of strange,” she replied.

“You let me be the judge of that,” the doctor said.

“Well,” she explained, “yesterday morning I went to the bathroom and heard a plink-plink in the toilet. When I looked down, the water was full of coins.”

“I see,” said the doctor.

“That afternoon I went again and there were more coins in the bowl,” continued the woman.


You’ve got to tell me what’s wrong with me!” she pleaded, “I’m scared out of my wits!”

The gynaecologist put a comforting hand on her shoulder. “There, there, don’t be alarmed,” he said, “you’re simply going through the change.” 

Groan! The cartoon is better 😀
