First off, a huge THANK YOU everyone who's joined in the Blogfest and to Leigh Moore, my partner in laughter. I'm so excited to see all your jokes today!
All right! Let's get on with it! The rules of the blogfest are few and very breakable. We wanted people to poke fun at themselves. Maybe as writers, maybe in their present occupation--or just offer a laugh.
I work part-time as an internist. In the medical world, we internists have a certain, er, reputation that's partly true, and partly embarrassing.
My job today is to reinforce that stereotype. Laugh away!
Joke #1: How many internists does it take to screw in light bulb?
Answer: Three. One to consult a light bulb specialist, one to consult a light-bulb installation specialist, and one to bill it all to Medicare.
Joke #2: An internist, a surgeon, and a pathologist went duck hunting together. A flock of birds flew overhead. The internist scratched her chin and observed, "Can't say for sure, but they don't look like pigeons. Too small for geese. I'll have to run some, er, duck-calling tests, to make sure they're ducks." While she pondered this, the flock flew away and another passed by overhead.
The surgeon then aimed his shotgun, fired, and a hundred birds rained down dead around them. He then pointed to the pathologist, and said, "You. Go find me a duck."
Have fun visiting the other blogfesters (festers? that's not quite right, but anyway) and see what jokes they have to share! And make a few new blog friends, to boot!
