Here’s a hilarious story of a quack doctor and an opportunist trying to outsmart each other.


The quack doctor posted an attention-grabbing sign on his “clinic” that said, “Can treat all kinds of illness for $100. If I can’t, I’ll pay you $1,000!”

Sensing an opportunity for money, a man stepped inside the clinic.

Man: "Hey doc, my sense of taste is messed up."

Quack: "Okay. Let me get the medicine from the second shelf and you'll drink one tablespoon of it."

The man drinks the ‘medicine.’

Man: [spits] "Ugh, this is gasoline!"

Quack: "Your sense of taste is now working. That will be $100."

Mad and frustrated, the opportunist paid the quack and left. 

He returned two days later.  

Man: "Hey doc, I keep on forgetting things."

Quack: "Okay. Let me get the medicine from the second shelf and you'll drink one tablespoon of it."

Man: "Are you nuts? That's gasoline!"

Quack: "Your mental faculties have been restored. That will be $100."

The man could not believe he was duped again for a second time. Angrily, he paid and stomped off.

Two days later, he was back at the quack’s place. He had thought hard of a way to outsmart the quack and came back confident he could pull it off this time around.

Man: "Hey doc, I can't see well anymore."

Quack: [Thinks for some time.] "Well Sorry, I don't have a cure for that. Guess you got me there. A deal is a deal; here's the money as promised." [Gets money from the drawer and gives it to the guy.]

Man: "Wait a minute, this is 50 bucks."

Quack: "Good! Your sight has returned! That'll be $150."

The man’s jaw dropped. He could not believe he got outsmarted again.

Moral of the story: Don’t mess with a scheming quack doctor.
