{December 5, 2011}   Mirthful Monday-Get Well Edition

Due to this lovely cold I have, I decided to do a Mirthful Monday dedicated to adding humor to the allergy and cold season we are in. Thus, I am naming this the Get Well Edition. May others find some get well humor when they are going through allergies, cold, flu, etc.!

Okay, ladies, which is worse—having a cold, or hearing your husband whine when he has one?

One more sneeze like that and it’ll take the Amazing Kreskin to find my contacts.

*****

The patient went to his doctor because he had flu, and the doctor wrote out a prescription for him in his usual illegible writing. The patient put it in his pocket, but forgot to get the tablets from the pharmacy. Every morning, for two years, he showed it to the conductor as a railroad pass. Twice, it got him into the movies, once into the soccer stadium, and once into the symphony. He got a raise at work by showing it as a note from his boss. One day he mislaid it. His daughter picked it up, played it on the piano and won a scholarship to the conservatory of music.

Did you hear the story about the germ?
Never Mind. I don’t want it spread all over.

A doctor was having an affair with his nurse. Shortly afterward, she told him that she was pregnant. Not wanting his wife to know, he gave the nurse a sum of money and asked her to go to Italy and have the baby there.

“But how will I let you know the baby is born?” she asked.

He replied, “Just send me a postcard and write “spaghetti” on the back. I’ll take care of expenses.” Not knowing what else to do, the nurse took the money and flew to Italy.

Six months went by, and then one day the doctor’s wife called him at the office and said, “Dear, you received a very strange postcard in the mail today from Europe, and I don’t understand what it means.”

The doctor said, “Just wait until I get home and I will explain it to you.”

Later that evening the doctor came home, read the postcard, and fell to the floor with a heart attack. Paramedics rushed him to the hospital emergency room. The head medic stayed back to comfort the wife. He asked what trauma had precipitated the cardiac arrest.

So the wife picked up the card and read: “Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti – Two with sausage and meatballs; two without.”

Hello. Welcome to the Psychiatric Hotline

If you are obsessive-compulsive, please press 1 repeatedly.

If you are co-dependent, please ask someone to press 2.

If you have multiple personalities, please press 3, 4, 5, and 6.

If you are paranoid-delusional, we know who you are and what you want. Just stay on the line so we can trace the call.

If you are schizophrenic, listen carefully and a little voice will tell you which number to press.

If you are manic-depressive, it doesn’t matter which number you press. No one will answer.

If you are anxious, just start pressing numbers at random.

If you are phobic, don’t press anything.

If you are anal retentive, please hold.

*****

If you have a lot of tension and you get headaches,
do what it says on the aspirin bottle:
“Take two and keep away from children.”


An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
An onion a day keeps everyone away.


Support bacteria.
They’re the only culture some people have.

Get well cards have become so humorous that if you don’t get sick you’re missing half the fun.
— Flip Wilson

The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they’ll ease
Your will they’ll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
— Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields

Warning: Humor may be hazardous to your illness.
— Ellie Katz

You have a cough? Go home tonight, eat a whole box of Ex-Lax – tomorrow you’ll be afraid to cough.
— Pearl Williams

I get by with a little help from my friends.

“Okay, ladies, which is worse—having a cold, or hearing your husband whine when he has one?”

Totally hearing my boyfriend whine when he has a cold, or he’s sick in any way, or he stubbed his toe, or . . . well, you get the point 😀



I agree…my husband always sounds like he is the sickest person in the world! LOL



ElizOF says:

Hope you all get better soon. It is that odd time of the year and we get cold easily. I have an eye cold and it suddenly appeared yesterday. Ugh! 🙂



UGH is right! Hope you get better soon as well!



Oh, I hope you get well soon and laughing won’t make your teeth hurt worse! You must be “all better” before Christmas so you can enjoy every moment.



Yes, I sure hope I am “all better” by Christmas…this drainage and cough is hanging on!



I love the touch tone joke!

I’d take a cold any day rather than hear my husband whine about being sick!!! Men are such babies when it comes to being sick, even if we (the wives) are sicker than they are and still do everything we’re supposed to do. I really think it’s a man thing. Unfortunately I have two boys at home, so I have to get ready to put up with “I’m soooo sick” statements for the rest of my life…



SO TRUE! My husband is such a whiner when he doesn’t feel good….he can’t seem to do anything except for what he wants to do! 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
