It’s Under The Bed – Joke

A young doctor had moved to a small community near Broken Hill to replace a doctor who was retiring.<>

The older doctor suggested that the young one accompany him on his rounds so that the community would become used to their new doctor.<>

At the first house a woman complains, “I’ve been a little sick to my stomach.”<>

The older doctor says, “Well, you’ve probably been overdoing the fresh fruit. Why not cut back on the amount you’ve been eating and see if that does the trick?”<>

As they left, the younger man said, “You didn’t even examine that woman, How did you come to your diagnosis so quickly?”<>

“I didn’t have to. You noticed I dropped my stethoscope on the floor in there? When I bent over to pick it up, I noticed a half dozen banana peels in the waste bin I knew that was what probably was making her sick.”<>

The younger doctor said “Pretty clever. If you don’t mind, I think I’ll try that at the next house.”<>

Arriving at the next house, they spent several minutes talking with a younger woman.<>

She said that she just didn’t have the energy she once had and said, “I’m feeling terribly run down lately.”<>

“You’ve probably been doing too much for the Church,” the younger doctor told her.<>

“Perhaps you should cut back a bit and see if that helps.”<>

As they left, the elder doctor said, “I know that woman well. Your diagnosis is almost certainly correct, she’s very active in the church but how did you arrive at it?”<>

“I did what you did at the last house. I dropped my stethoscope and when I bent down to retrieve it, I noticed the vicar under the bed.”<>
