NATTER: COST OF A BRAIN

Another one of those office joke.... too witty to pass up so I thought I’d post it on my blog. No disrespect meant to my male friends. I am sure that there are plenty of female jokes around too. Here is how this joke goes.

In the hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room, where their family member lay gravely ill.


Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and sombre.
'I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news,' he said as he surveyed the worried faces.'The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant. It's an experimental procedure, very risky but it is the only hope. Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to pay for the brain yourselves.'

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a great length of time, someone asked, 'Well, how much does a brain cost?'

The doctor quickly responded, '$5,000 for a male brain, and $200 for a female brain.'

The moment turned awkward. Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the women, but some actually smirked.

A man unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask,

'Why is the male brain so much more?'


The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire group, 'It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to mark down the price of the female brains, because they've actually been used.'

OUCH!

Now we know why some guys are always looking blank and having nothing much to say. Yet they say we ask too much question and worry for nothing. Use it while it is still in good condition. No offence though...Nice joke.

I agree Push. Poor Mr G still needs me to write him a 'list' for his chores - and we have been married 17.5 years! You'd think he'd know what to do by this time. Now you know why I make such a big deal when he does something on his own accord! LOL....
