Question by Lamya: Is Laughter really the best medicine?
Here are some jokes and one-liners related to the health profession =)..

WARNING:Could be addictive…A bit long, (soz!)but worth it..*Star* if funny.

Welcome to the Psychiatric Hotline.
If you are obsessive-compulsive, please press 1 repeatedly.
If you are co-dependent, please ask someone to press 2.
If you have multiple personalities, please press 3, 4, 5, and 6.
If you are paranoid-delusional, we know who you are and what you want. Just stay on the line so we can trace the call.
If you are schizophrenic, listen carefully and a little voice will tell you which number to press.
If you are depressed, it doesn’t matter which number you press. No one will answer.
If you are delusional and occasionally hallucinate, please be aware that the thing you are holding on the side of your head is alive and about to bite off your ear.

Two elderly couples were enjoying friendly conversation when one of the men asked the other, “Fred, how was the memory clinic you went to last month?”
“Outstanding,” Fred replied. “They taught us all the latest psychological techiniques – visualization, association – it made a huge difference for me.”
“That’s great! What was the name of the clinic?”

Fred went blank. He thought and thought, but couldn’t remember. Then a smile broke across his face and he asked, “What do you call that red flower with the long stem and thorns?”
“You mean a rose?”
“Yes, that’s it!” He turned to his wife. . .”Rose, what was the name of that clinic?”

A woman, calling Mount Sinai Hospital, said, “Hello, I want to know if a patient is getting better.”

The voice on the other end of the line said, “What is the patient’s name and room number?”

She said, “Yes, darling! She’s Sarah Finkel, in Room 302.”

He said, “Oh, yes. Mrs. Finkel is doing very well. In fact, she’s had two full meals, her blood pressure is fine, she’s going to be taken off the heart monitor in a couple of hours and if she continues this improvement, Dr. Cohen is going to send her home Tuesday.”

The woman said, “Thank God! That’s wonderful! Oh! That’s fantastic! That’s wonderful news!”

The man on the phone said, “From your enthusiasm, I take it you must be a close family member or a very close friend!”

She said, “I’m Sarah Finkel in 302! Cohen, my doctor, doesn’t tell me a word!”

Things You Don’t Want to Hear During Surgery:

Oops!
Has anyone seen my watch?
That was some party last night. I can’t remember when I’ve been that drunk.
Damn! Page 47 of the manual is missing!
Well this book doesn’t say that… What edition is your manual?
OK, now take a picture from this angle. This is truly a freak of nature.
Better save that. We’ll need it for the autopsy.
Come back with that! Bad Dog!
Wait a minute, if this is his spleen, then what’s that?
Hand me that…uh…that uh…..thingie
If I can just remember how they did this on ER last week.

Damn, there go the lights again…
Ya know, there’s big money in kidneys. Hell, the guy’s got two of ’em.
Everybody stand back! I lost my contact lens!

This patient has already had some kids, am I correct?
Nurse, did this patient sign the organ donation card?
Don’t worry. I think it is sharp enough.
What do you mean “You want a divorce”!
I don’t know what it is, but hurry up and pack it in ice.
Let’s hurry, I don’t want to miss “Bay Watch”
That laughing gas stuff is pretty cool. Can I have some more of that?
Hey Charlie, unzip the bag on that one, he’s still moving.

“I came in to make an appointment with the dentist.” said the man to the receptionist.

“I’m sorry sir.” she replied. “He’s out right now, but…”

“Thank you,” interrupted the obviously nervous prospective patient. “When will he be out again ?”

A husband and wife entered the dentist’s office. The husband said, “I want a tooth pulled. I don’t want gas or Novocain because I’m in a terrible hurry. Just pull the tooth as quickly as possible.”

“You’re a brave man,” said the dentist. “Now, show me which tooth it is.”

The husband turns to his wife and says, “Open your mouth and show the dentist which tooth it is, dear.”

A man and his wife were making their first doctor visit prior to the birth of their first child. After everything checked out, the doctor took a small stamp and stamped the wife’s stomach with indelible ink.
The couple was curious about what the stamp was for so when they got home, he dug out his magnifying glass to try to see what it was. In very tiny letters the stamp said, “When you can read this, come back and see me.”

A man goes into a drugstore and asks the pharmacist if he can give him something for the hiccups. The pharmacist promptly reaches out and slaps the man’s face.

“What did you do that for?” the man asks.
“Well, you don’t have the hiccups anymore, do you?”
The man says, “No, but my wife out in the car still does!”

Patient to optometrist: I’m very worried about the outcome of this operation, doctor. What are the chances?

Optometrist to patient: Don’t worry, you won’t be able to see the difference.

Doctor: I have some bad news and some very bad news.

Patient: Well, might as well give me the bad news first.

Doctor: The lab called with your test results. They said you have 24 hours to live.

Patient: 24 HOURS! That’s terrible!! WHAT could be WORSE? What’s the very bad news?

A man who thought he was John the Baptist was disturbing the neighborhood, so for public safety, he was committed. He was put in a room with another crazy, and immediately began his routine, “I am John The Baptist! Jesus Christ has sent me!” The other guy looked at him and declared, “I did not!”
*************************************

The man told his doctor that he wasn’t able to do all the things around the house that he used to do. When the examination was complete, he said, “Now, Doc, I can take it. Tell me in plain English what is wrong with me.”
“Well, in plain English,” the doctor replied, “you’re just lazy.”

“Okay,” said the man. “Now give me the medical term so I can tell my wife.”

Question by Country Girl: Anyone have any interesting stories/ personal knowledge of canine “search and rescue” teams?
In the region where I live there are several “Search and Rescue” organizations with some incredible dogs that have found lost individuals, many times saving them from tragedy. Know of any specific stories from your area?
Thanks. I’m so glad dogs are being rescued but what I was referring to is the Search and Rescue teams of dogs and handlers that go out and find lost people. Such as the kind used in 9/11 or even in the military. Around here sometimes they’ve found lost people in the woods and averted a tragedy.
