Funny Pun about Doctor
A surgeon walked into a bar
After a grueling operation.
He had spent the last seven hours
Involved in intense concentration.
Still wearing his surgical clothes,
A stethoscope around his neck,
He sat down heavily at the bar
And told the barman, “I am a wreck.”
There were a bunch of wind-up toys
Lined up on the back bar behind.
“What are those small toys for?” he asked.
Barman, “Folks play with them to unwind.”
“The little mouse is my favorite
Because it keeps on going and going.”
“Okay,” said the doc, “Give me the mouse,
We’ll see how long it runs before slowing.”
“Now I need a good, strong, cocktail.
Which drink would you suggest for me?”
“How about the house specialty?
Guess what's in it and the drink is free.”
“Okay, that sounds very fair to me.
Make the drink while I play with this toy.”
The doctor winds it up completely,
As excited as any small boy.
When the mouse is placed on the bar,
It runs in circles of perfection.
Then it wiggles its tiny nose
And runs in the other direction.
While the doctor plays with his toy,
A couple argues at the end of the bar
Over a tiny wind-up clock playing tunes
That are sung by a famous star.
“Sherry-Lee,” says the guy, “I’m playing with that,
You know I like that wind-up clock that sings.”
“Oh, don’t be so selfish, Juan,” she replies,
“Play with one of the other wind-up things.”
The doctor’s mouse has not run down,
As the barman brings him his drink.
Smells like rum and lime with bits of brown,
“Taste it and tell me what you think.”
The argument in the corner grows,
Juan yells, “I’m leaving now, Sherry-Lee.”
The doctor sniffs and wrinkles his nose,
And asks, "Does this drink contain hickory?"
Sherry-Lee throws the clock toward the door,
As the wind-up mouse begins to slow.
The clock struck Juan, the mouse ran down,
The barman says, “You just won, you know . . .
. . . It's a hickory daiquiri, doc!"
Were you as surprised by the ending of the pun as that cute little white mouse?
Bonus Doctor Joke
A motorcycle mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he noticed a well-known cardiologist waiting in his shop. The cardiologist was there waiting for the mechanic to come take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?"
The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and said, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new.
“So, how come I make less than $40,000 a year, a pretty small salary, and you make more than $200,000 when you and I are doing basically the same work?"
The cardiologist paused, smiled and then leaned over and whispered to the mechanic . . .
"Try doing it with the engine running!"
