At the doctors (Eew warning)

As we are practising going to the doctors in Let's Talk About It, here's a doctor joke:-

An elderly man goes to the doctor for his annual check up, and his wife goes with him, because he is losing his hearing.

When the doctor has finished the physical examination he tells the old man, "I need a urine sample, a stool sample, and a sperm sample."

The old man, being hard of hearing, looks at his wife and yells, "WHAT? What did he say? What does he want?"

His wife yells back, "He needs your underpants."

    Not so funny . sorry.
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,538 mod
    This is very funny. Tony Hancock is priceless in this episode called The Blood Donor. I can't believe that it's over fifty years ago that this was first transmitted!

    Funny man, in the end he needed his donated blood for himself. I think he was satisfied about that, because he didn`t like donating anything.
    I like British humor, they like to make humor about themself so no-one else can do it.
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,538 mod
    Yes the British are very good at laughing at themselves. I think this is a very healthy attitude. Tony Hancock was a very funny comedian.

    Nothing to do with the doctor, but if you like his comedies, try this one:

    He had a celery stalk stuck in each ear and a carrot stuck up each nostril.

    He mumbled, "Doc, I'm just not feeling well."

    The doctor replied, "Maybe you're not eating right."

    Very well observed by the doc, the smarter doctor that I saw.

    Another joke for you: @lynne, @helvio, @mheredge

    There were two close-friend construction workers. One day while they were giving their regular lunch brake at a high girder, both realized, there was pasta in their lunch boxes. One said: "I'm tired of pasta. Everyday same thing. If this happens again I'll jump off!".

    The next day, again at the top, two friends opened their lunch boxes. There was meatball instead of pasta for the one who was annoyed yesterday, however, the other one had the same pasta again. This time the one had pasta sweared: "I'm tired of pasta. Everyday same thing. If this happens again I'll jump off!".

    The trailing day, the man who sweared not to eat pasta again, opened his box, saw the pasta and simultaneously jumped off and died.

    After the incident, the lunch buddy decided to visit his friend's wife to give his condolences. Suprisingly the wife didn't seem so mournful. He asked: "Why didn't you change his meal, he was so bored". She replied: "He didn't tell me anything, generally he prepared his own lunch" :(

    Ohhh!! Poor stupid guy!! hahahaha

    Here in Brazil when we told jokes like that we say it is a Portuguese joke. hahaha

    Our countrymen are not very fond of the comparison.

    Lynne's joke reminds me of a joke about a man and a condom, but I won't tell you, because I'm afraid that @Lynne‌ will kick me out the forum. :)
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Send me a private message @april. hahahahaha
  • spawnintegrityspawnintegrity Posts: 78 ✭✭
    @april I'm curious too.
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,538 mod
    I think you now have to share the joke @april. I'm sure @Lynne won't thrown you out.
  • SLBSLB Posts: 1,289 ✭✭✭✭
    @april‌ maybe you could start some sort of private discussion. Your a mod, can't you do that with your power?
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 9,839 mod
    O-oh, I'm in trouble :) :) :)
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 8,818 mod
    Just remember, with great power comes great responsibility. (You can tell me the joke later.) :wink:

    Where is Peter Paker?
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,538 mod
    Who is Peter Paker @Helvio?
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Sorry @mheredge, I miss the 'r', the corect name is Peter Parker

    Also knowed by Spider Man.
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 9,839 mod
    Do you mean "also known as (aka)" Spider Man, @Helvio‌.
    He is not the journalist, right? That is Superman, I think. :)
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Thank you @april. 'also known as'

    Peter Parker is a photographer, and he is the spider man, doubtless.

    But the joke was lost. :\
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 8,818 mod
    Wasn't Peter Parker a photographer?
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,538 mod
    I think it was more a case that he ended up with the job of getting photos of Spiderman @Lynne, but he tried lots of jobs and no one wanted him.
  • SLBSLB Posts: 1,289 ✭✭✭✭
    Can you start all over again please? I didn't get the Spiderman joke.
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,538 mod
    I'm not sure I even saw a Spiderman joke anywhere @SLB! Or maybe I'm not looking hard enough.
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 9,839 mod
    Oh, have I ruined your joke, @Helvio‌ ? I'm sorry.
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Don't worry @april, it's only a joke. :D
  • spawnintegrityspawnintegrity Posts: 78 ✭✭
    @helvio please continue to your joke.
    -Where is Peter Parker?
    -Peter Parker is on his way to the office.
