doctor, doctor

heartI feel the need…

I feel the need for levity

This joke comes from one of my main sources of jokes: http://jokes.christiansunite.com/ I retell it here in honour of those who work in our health service, especially those who work in cardiac services.

A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a motorcycle when he spotted a well known heart surgeon in his shop. The surgeon was waiting for the service manager to look at his bike.

The mechanic shouted across the garage, “Hey Doc, can I ask you a question?”

The surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic who was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands and said, “So doc, look at this engine, I open its heart, take valves out, fix them, put ’em back and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work?”

The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over and whispered to the mechanic, “Try doing it with the engine running.”

Be blessed, be a blessing
