Email From Mother



My mother is my email buddy and she passed this one on to me. I usually won’t post these, but in the spirit of the upcoming elections, I couldn’t resist. Surgeons, take note, you might pick up a few tips.

>Subject:: Easiest Surgery Patients
>
> The first surgeon, from New York, says, "I like to see accountants on
> my operating table, because when you open them up, everything inside
> is numbered."
>
> The second, from Chicago, responds, "Yeah, but you should try
>electricians. Everything inside them is color coded."
>
> The third surgeon, from Dallas, says, "No, I really think librarians
> are the best; everything inside them is in alphabetical order."
>
> The fourth surgeon, from Los Angeles chimes in: "You know, I like
> construction workers...those guys always understand when you have a
> few parts left over."
>
> But the fifth surgeon, from Washington, DC shut them all up when he
> observed: "You're all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate
>on. There's no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains and no spine, and the
> head and the butt are interchangeable."

Love the story. As always, love the illustration, too. (Never did well at that game -- even before I drank a pot of coffee a day my hands shook too bad.)

But I was nervous reading the story -- waiting to see if there'd be a line about lawyers. Hmmmm.

On the other hand, computer geeks are completely unintelligible; being that their insides are full of cryptic codes.

Love that your mom is your email buddy!
