Groaner Alert

Feeling a bit under the weather, so I'm leaving you with a joke today.

Or at least I think it's a joke. Well, I laughed.

Glenn took his bird to the veterinary clinic, and laid its limp body on the table. The doctor pulled out his stethoscope, listened to the bird's chest for a moment, then shook his head sadly. "I'm sorry, but your bird has passed away." "What?" Glenn screamed. "You haven't even done any tests! I want another opinion." The vet left the room and returned in a few moments with a Labrador Retriever. The Retriever sniffed the bird on the table carefully from head to toe. Finally, the Retriever shook it's head and barked once (meaning "dead and gone"). The vet took the Labrador away and returned a few minutes later with a cat, which also sniffed carefully over the bird on the table before shaking its head and saying, "Meow" (meaning "he's gone"). After the cat jumped off the table, the vet handed Glenn a bill for $600. The man shook the bill at the vet. "$600!!!! Just to tell me my bird is dead?!!! That's outrageous!" The vet explained. "If you had taken my word for it, the charge would have been $50, but with the Lab work and the cat scan...."

Michele - *snort*

I think I'm feeling better, I just got up so I'm not sure. Both Bebo and I ended up sick. I don't think it was the pizza because it tasted okay. I think it was sinus drainage - for both of us. Let's just say my sister's house included masks and gloves. More on that later.

Hi Bailey,
Hope you're on the mend soon! And thanks for the laugh -- then followed by a frown. Have you been to a hospital lately and looked closely at your bill when leaving?!?

I've heard it but it's the kind you like reading more than once :) I'll bet packing up the house is what's done you in. Goodness knows what you've inhaled.

We did some work to our gameroom - dismantling some built-in seating that took up too much room - my husband hasn't stopped sneezing yet. And I always get a headache.

Hope you're done with that house soon.

Dru said...

That was a good joke to have for the rest of the afternoon.

Hope you feel better soon.

I was going to ask, how did the packing of the house go yesterday?

Rene said...
