A woman bursts out of her doctor’s examining room screaming. She had just been told that she was pregnant.
Another doctor in the hospital stops her and asks her what the problem is. She tells the doctor, who gets her to sit down.
This doctor marches down the hall to his colleague’s office, hoping to get an explanation.
“What are you playing at? Mrs Jones is 60 years old. She had six grown children, and nine grandchildren. Her husband passed away two years ago. Why did you tell her she was pregnant?” the doctor demanded from his colleague.
The doctor barely looked up from the notes he was writing. “Tell me,” he said, “Does Mrs Jones still have the hiccups?”
