The gynecologist who became a mechanic

A gynecologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance and  HMO paperwork, and was burned out. Hoping to try another career where skillful hands would be beneficial, he decided to become a mechanic. He  went to the local technical college, signed up for evening classes, attended  diligently, and learned all he could.

When the time of the practical exam approached, the gynecologist prepared  carefully for weeks, and completed the exam with tremendous skill.

When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had obtained a score of  150%. Fearing an error, he called the Instructor, saying, “I don’t want to  appear ungrateful for such an outstanding result, but I wonder if there is  an error in the grade?”

“The instructor said, “During the exam, you took the engine apart perfectly,  which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine back together  again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark.” After a pause, the  instructor added, “I gave you an extra 50% because you did it all through  the muffler, which I’ve never seen done in my entire career”.

Noon-time whistle

Every Monday morning for years, at about 11:30 am, the telephone operator in a small Sierra-Nevada town received a call from a man asking the exact time. One day the operator summed-up the nerve to ask him why the regularity.

“I’m foreman of the local sawmill,” he explained. “Every day, I have to blow the whistle at noon, so I call you to get the exact time.”

The operator giggled, “That’s really funny,” she said. “All this time, we’ve been setting our clock by your whistle.


A quick trip to the dentist

   A man and his wife walked into a dentist’s office.

The man said to the dentist, “Doc, I’m in one heck of a hurry.  I have two buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to go play golf, so forget  about the anesthetic, I don’t have time for the gums to get numb. I just want you to pull the tooth, and be done with it!  We have a 10:00 AM tee time at the best golf course in town and it’s 9:30 already… I don’t have time to wait for the anesthetic to work!’

The dentist thought to himself, “My goodness, this is surely a very brave man asking to have his tooth pulled without using anything to kill the pain.”  

So the dentist asks him, “Which tooth is it sir?”

The man turned to his wife and said, “Open your mouth Honey, and show him.
