Funny Pun about Doctor

Updated on April 18, 2013

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!"

      You are the most unbelievable person. Everything I have read of yours just cracks me up. It is so important to our lives to laugh and never take things too seriously. Doing this will sure make us live a little longer. I love the one about the doctor and the wind up toy. I have a relative in med school who would enjoy reading some of your material. If I am not already following you, I am now. Pinning. Blessings. Audrey

      You are most ingenious, Cat. I do think of 'endings' first for my atrocious puns and then try to fashion a funny story leading up to them. Delighted I made you laugh with the hickory daiquiri - the pleasure is all mine.

      drbj,

      Wow, thanks for the support! You know... the only kind of puns I seem to be able to tell are the ones that happen by accident or a whim. Yours are so clever... honestly, I'm so impressed I don't even want to attempt matching them. I guess you'd almost have to think of the end first and then make the story to accommodate the pun? Even so, I could never come up with that Hickory Daiquiri, Doc... oh, I'm still laughing!

      Thanks again! :D

      Thanks for hitting a variety of buttons and sharing. You ARE a dear!

      drbj,

      Rhyming and puns! Now that's talent!!! You definitely are the Queen of the puns... I so wish I could retell them as good as you write them, but usually my retell ends up with me laughing (as I remember how well it worked when you did it) while the others just look confused! Ha ha... these are great.

      I hit all kinds of buttons! Sharing too!

      Thank you, Martie, for the 'loverly' comments. I love that cardiologist joke, too. What a cute little white mouse your pet must have been, and how traumatic it must have been to find he had been your sister's cat's lunch. Do earnestly hope that you did not learn of its demise by finding half a mouse hanging from the kitty's mouth. Ugh!

      No thanks necessary, m'luv, entirely my pleasure.

      Once upon a time, when I was a young teenager, I had the cutest little white mouse. Half of the day he lived in the pocket of my school blazer. Go figure! Then, one day, while he was playing alone in my room, sweet and cute on my bed, my sister's cat got hold of him....

      Excellent pun and bonus doctor joke. Thank you, drbj :)

      Sorry about the initial stumping, SilentReed, but happy you read my explanation to Petra concerning the nursery rhyme. Re using the baa baa black sheep to counter insomnia, counting them jumping over a gate has never worked for me. Probably because a stubborn goat would often sneak into the scenario and I would be lying there wide awake trying to imagine it elsewhere.

      Yep, the daiquiri would be more effective. Thanks for the visit and the laughing, m'dear.

      Your profound, intellectual penetration goes without saying, drbj - as does the emotional depth of your articles. I wished granddaughter a happy birthday from you. She and her younger sister got a hamster each (it's called keeping the peace). Now we are all keeping book on the animals' life expectancies - after all they have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 rabbit, some goldfish, and they feed 5 deer and two turkey hawks - not forgetting the skunks and coyotes. p.s. Your hub was hilarious.

      I must admit to being initially stump by the pun until I read your explanation to Petra Vlah. It's been a while since I read any Mother Goose nursery rhymes.:) Although I am thinking of trying out the effectiveness of the baa baa black sheep have you any wool to lull me to sleep during insomniac nights...or maybe the daiquiri would be a better alternative.:) Good pun and I still got a laugh out of it.

You've made our morning even funnier; it's a grandaughter's 7th birthday today, and we know she's getting a hamster, so we found a card written by a hamster - when it's opened a hamster sings and plays the drums. It is hilarious and her mother is going to hate us.

      Hi, Jaye. Well, I guess I almost 'gotcha' - at least until the doc said, 'hickory.' And it wasn't easy to get the clock to strike Juan before the mouse ran down. Heh, heh.

      Thanks for the laughter and enjoying the bonus joke and cartoon, too. Had you in stitches? You clever girl, you. And thanks for the Up and the pluses and the sharing. You are a genuine Hubbuddy.

      Do regret, Don, that you are not exposed much to this kind of humor anymore. Happy you found them good. My pleasure, any time.

      Hi, Mary. I create the verses and often invent the pun. Other times I'll find a one-liner pun I think is funny and create the verse story to accompany it.

      Sorry I couldn't get the mouse to keel over - opening his mouth wide was the best reaction I could get from him. (That's what I get for not hiring a professional!)

      Thanks for the funny, the Up and the sharing, m'luv.

      Thanks for enjoying these two good 'uns, Peg. And do share the cycle joke with hubby. Is he, by any chance, a biker, m'dear?

      Hi, Petra. I can understand you might have had a hard time with this pun since you need to be acquainted with the nursery rhyme which goes as follows: 'Hickory, dickory, dock, the mouse ran up the clock. The clock struck one, the mouse ran down, hickory, dickory, dock.'

      Happy you found the joke funny; I like your whale joke, too. I think I know her. (Just kidding.)

      This one's marvelous! I didn't guess the punchline until the doctor asked, "Does this drink contain hickory?" Then I realized it was a "hickory daiquiri, doc" , though I didn't know the clock would strike Juan just before the mouse (toy) ran down.

      You're so good at these, and I love the laughter that ensues as I read them. The bonus doctor joke is funny, too, as well as the cartoon (which had me in stitches.)

      Voted Up+++ and shared (because everyone needs laughter)

      Those were good ones. I don't hear much of that kind of humor anymore.
