Five Australian surgeons from the big cities are discussing which kind of person makes the best patient to operate on.
The first surgeon, a woman from Brisbane, says, “I like to see accountants on my operating table because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.”
The second, a man from Perth, replies, “Yeah, but you should try electricians. Everything inside them is colour coded.”
A third surgeon from Adelaide adds, “No way! I think librarians are the best! Everything inside them is in alphabetical order.”
The fourth, from Sydney, says, “I’ve always liked construction workers. They always understand when you have a few parts left over.”
The final surgeon, from Melbourne, dismisses all the others and tells a story of his own.
“You’re all wrong,” he says. “Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There’s no guts, no balls, no brains and no spine. Also, the head and arse are interchangeable.”
