Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Another way to solve a problem

A journalist walks into the hospital and tells the desk nurse that he wants to see the eye-ear doctor. "There is no such doctor," she tells him. "Perhaps you would like to see someone else?"

"No," he insists, "I need to see an eye-ear doctor."

"But there is no such doctor," replies the nurse. "We have doctors for the eyes and doctors for the ear, nose and throat, but no eye-ear doctor."

But he only repeats stubbornly that he wants to see the eye-ear doctor. They keep going round and round like this for a few minutes until the frustrated nurse finally asks, "Look, there is no eye-ear doctor, but if there were one, why would you want to see him?"

"Because," replies the journalist, "I keep hearing one thing and seeing another."
