    A wife, being somewhat romantic, sends a text to her husband who's on a business trip:
    "If you are sleeping, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking, send me a sip. If you are crying, send me your tears...I love you!"
    The husband's reply?
    "I'm on the toilet. Please advise."

  • I saved these for quite a while. They are worth revisiting. Supposedly from actual court proceedings. You be the judge, pardon the pun.

    ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?


    ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
    WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?


    ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?
    WITNESS: He's 20, much like your IQ.


    ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?

    ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?

    ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?

    ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
    WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

    In this rather macabre vein, I quote James Young Simpson who during an operation suddenly turned to the anesthesist, saying, "Dear colleague, I don't know how the patient is doing at your end, but he seems to be dead at mine."

    Reminds me of an ACTUAL situation where I was the patient. I was a poor grad student living in NYC where the cost of living is as sky high as the buildings, and had a knee injury requiring surgery. The anesthesiologist came in the room and told me his plan. In order to try to cut costs on my medical expenses I asked him if there was any way he could cut his fee down by half. He told me for half fee, he would just put me under.

    Like the guy who went to the dentist and was asked whether he wanted his tooth drawn first class or second class. "Well... what's the difference?" he asked. "Oh, it's quite simple. Second class, you get all the young nurses and all the old equipment, and in first class, it's the other way round."

    A Scotsman phones a dentist's surgery. "Eh, mon, what's the cost o' drawin' a tuith?" - "That would be fifty pounds, sir." - "Canna I get it a wee bit cheaper?" - "Certainly, sir. 25 pounds, but that is with only initial anesthesia and limited equipment." - Canne ye make it even cheaper?" - "Well, yes, sir, we can do it for ten pounds, but that is without any anesthesia and just using a plain set of blacksmith's pincers. Very painful process." - "Can ye make an appointment for Thursday for ma mither-in-law?"
