1. A man said, His doctor operated on him and left a sponge inside. His friend said,” That must be uncomfortable.” He said,”No, it just makes me thirsty.”

2. Molly: “Did your dad die a natural death?” Dolly:”No, he had a doctor.”

3.You are fortunate to get to work without being hit by a machine, and then learn you have not been replaced by one.

4. What was the first thing the doctor did?

He took out his stethoscope, and carefully listened to my wallet.

5. The doctor said,” Let me check your medical history first; do you pay your doctors’ bills.”

Grace and peace folks, good-bye.
