If you need a good laugh today, this hilarious conversation between a patient and a doctor will give you just that.


An elderly man was complaining about a pain in his leg that doesn't heal. One day, he decided to visit his doctor because he wants a diagnosis and explanation. At the hospital, he was immediately checked by the doctor yet couldn't discover anything wrong.

At that point, the doctor gave the older man a full physical test. However, he still couldn't think of any conceivable clarification for the pain.

"I'm sorry, but the pain in your leg is just brought about by old age. There's nothing I can do about it," the doctor said after giving the patient his bill.

With a look of disbelief, the elderly person answered, "That's impossible! That can't be!"

"What do you mean? I'm the expert here. If you know so much, how can you say it's not old age?" said the doctor.

The patient replied, "I'm not a doctor, but it doesn't take a medical degree to tell that your diagnosis is wrong. Clearly, you're mistaken. After all, my other leg feels just fine."

"So what?" said the doctor, "What difference does that make?" To which the old man replied, "Well, it doesn't hurt a bit, and it's the same age!"

Did you laugh your heart out? Here's a bonus joke to keep you laughing some more.

One day, Albert walks into his doctor's office for his yearly physical exam as he has done the same time every year that he can remember.

The doctor takes him through all of the motions, does the usual tests, and then leaves to get the results. After about 15 minutes, the doctor returns with a sorrowful look on his face.

"Well, Doc, what kind of shape am I in this time?" asks Albert.

"Albert, I don't know what to say. The news is bad. Really bad," replies the doctor.

"What is it, Doc?" asks Albert.

"I hate to have to give you such bad news. I can't find the words to tell you. I really don't know what to say."

Albert, being a strong man who appreciates straight talk, tells the doctor, "Ok, don't beat around the bush. Tell me what you know. I can take it."

"Well," says the doctor, "let me put it this way. I think that you should go to Arkansas and visit the hot springs there for a nice relaxing mud bath. Spend some time soaking in the mud."

"Oh, so I need to relax a little bit, eh? Will that cure me, Doc?" asks Albert.

"No, Albert, it won't cure you. And it won't help you relax. But it will help you get used to being covered in dirt."
