After dinner story – Two men in hospital Ward joke – National Health

Man in bed gif

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.  His bed was next to the room’s only window.  The other man had to spend all of his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.

Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man couldn’t hear the band – he could see it, in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days and weeks passed. One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone. Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed. It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

Patient Statements

These are statements medical staff wrote about their patients. They were collected from those clipboards that you see at the end of the patient’s bed. Fortunately, the doctors and nurses were in too much of a hurry to check what they were writing:

  • The patient has three teenage children, but no other abnormalities.
  • On the third day, the elbow was better, and then on the fourth day, it disappeared.
  • Discharge status: Alive, but without my permission.
  • The patient refused autopsy.
  • The patient has no previous history of suicides.
  • The patient has left white blood cells at another hospital.
  • I saw your patient, Mrs Jones, today. She is still under our care for osteoporosis.

The Story of the Crabby Old Man

When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in North Platte, Nebraska, USA, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value. Later, when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, they found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital.

The old man’s sole bequest to posterity is his poem and it has since appeared in the Christmas edition of the News Magazine of the St. Louis Association for Mental Health.

What do you see nurses? What do you see?
What are you thinking when you’re looking at me?
A crabby old man, not very wise, Uncertain of habit with faraway eyes?

Who dribbles his food and makes no reply When you say in a loud voice, ‘I do wish you’d try!’
Who seems not to notice the things that you do.
And forever is losing a sock or shoe?

Who, resisting or not, lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding, the long day to fill?
Is that what you’re thinking? Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse – you’re not looking at me.

I’ll tell you who I am as I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, as I eat at your will.
I’m a small child of Ten with a father and mother, Brothers and sisters who love one another.

A young boy of Sixteen with wings on his feet
Dreaming that soon now a lover he’ll meet.
A groom soon at Twenty. My heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows that I promised to keep.

At Twenty-Five, now I have young of my own,
Who needs me to guide, you and a secure happy home?
A man of Thirty, my young now grown fast, Bound
to each other with ties that should last.

At Forty, my young sons have grown and are gone,
But my woman’s beside me to see I don’t mourn.
At Fifty, once more, babies play ‘ round my knee,
Again, we know children, my loved ones, and me.

Dark days are upon me. My wife is now dead.
I look at the future – I shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing young of their own.
And I think of the years and the love that I’ve known.

I’m now an old man and nature is cruel.
Tis jest to make old age look like a fool.
The body, crumbles; grace and vigor, depart.
There is now a stone where I once had a heart.

But inside this old carcass, a young guy still dwells,
And now and again my battered heart swells.
I remember the joys. I remember the pain.
And I’m loving and living life over again.

I think of the years, all too few, gone too fast.
And accept the stark
fact that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people, open and see.
Not a crabby old man. Look closer. See . . . ME.

Remember this poem when you next meet an older person who you might brush aside without looking at the young soul within. We will all, one day, be there, too!

Please feel free to share this poem.

The best and most beautiful things in this world can’t be seen or touched. They must be felt by the heart.

Hospital Joke: National Health Service

In the beginning, God covered the earth with broccoli, cauliflower, and spinach, with green yellow, and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

Then using God’s bountiful gifts, Satan created Haagen Das Ice Cream and Magnums. And Satan said: ‘You want hot fudge with that?’ And Man said: ‘Yes!’ And Woman said: ‘I’ll have one too …with sprinkles.’ And lo they gained 10 pounds.

And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat, and sugar from the cane, and combined them. And Woman went from size 2 to size 14.

So God said: ‘Try my fresh green garden salad.’ And Satan presented crumbled Blue Cheese dressing and garlic croutons on the side. And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

God then said: ‘I have sent you heart-healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them.’ And Satan brought forth deep-fried coconut king prawns, butter-dipped lobster chunks, and chicken-fried steak so big it needed its platter. And Man’s cholesterol went through the roof.

Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with potassium and good nutrition. Then Satan peeled off the healthful skin sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fried them in animal fats adding copious
quantities of salt. And Man put on more pounds.

Doctor cartoon

God then brought forth running shoes so that his Children might lose those extra pounds. And Satan came forth with a cable TV with a remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering light and started wearing stretch jogging suits.

God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald’s and the .99 pence double cheeseburger. Then Satan said, ‘You want fries with that?’ And Man replied: ‘Yes! And super size ’em!’ And Satan said: ‘It is good.’ The man and Woman went into cardiac arrest.

God sighed…and created quadruple bypass surgery.

And then…Satan chuckled

and created the National Health Service……………

Allan, a mechanic, was removing a cylinder head from a Harley-Davidson motorbike when he spotted a world-famous heart surgeon in his garage. The heart surgeon was waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his bike.

Allan shouted across the garage, ‘Hey Doc can I ask you a question?’ The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to Allan. Allan straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag, and asked, ‘So Doc, look at this engine. I also can open hearts, take valves out, fix ’em, and put in new parts and when I finish this will work just like a new one. So how come I work for a pittance and you get the really big money when you and I are doing the same work?’

The surgeon paused, smiled leaned over, and whispered in Allan’s ear, ‘Try doing it with the engine

Gazing intently at the X-rays, the radiologist blinked and said, ‘Cross out ‘expert.’

Now, Dan, you’re going to be just fine,’ says the nun, gently patting his hand. ‘We do need to know, however, how you intend to pay for your stay here. Are you covered by insurance?’

‘No, I’m not,’ Dan whispers hoarsely.

‘Then are you able to pay in cash?’ persists Sister Mary. ‘I’m afraid I cannot, Sister,’ says Dan regretfully.

‘Well now, do you have any close relatives?’ Sister Mary questions sternly

‘Only my sister in Puerto Vallarta,’ Dan volunteers, ‘But she’s a humble spinster nun, like your good self.’

Cautionary Tale – Girl, 12, Proves That Toilet Water Is Cleaner Than Ice Cubes

A Florida schoolgirl won the top prize with a science project proving that toilet water is cleaner than ice in fast food restaurants.  Jasmine Roberts, 12, of New Tampa, tested her theory in five local restaurants, reports Tampa Bay’s 10 News.

‘My hypothesis is that the fast food restaurants’ ice would contain more bacteria than the fast food restaurant’s
toilet water, ‘she said.  Jasmine says at each restaurant she flushed the toilet once, then used sterile gloves to gather samples. She also collected ice from soda fountains and asked for cups of ice at drive-thru windows. She then tested the samples at a lab.

Jasmine said: ‘I found that 70% of the time, the ice from the fast food restaurants contains more bacteria than the fast-food restaurant’s toilet water.’

Her project won the science fair at Benito Middle School, and she hopes to win the top prize at a regional science and engineering fair.

Thomas and Olive At the Dentist


Olive, from County Westmeath, Ireland, arrives in England to live with her daughter and son-in-law. She is moving because of her poor health and brings with her most of her treasured possessions. These include a small piece of tissue paper in which she has secreted what appear to be five teeth that have broken off her denture.

Having settled in she asks Thomas, ‘Do you know where I can get my dentures mended?’ Of course, ‘replies Thomas, ‘If you give them to me I’ll take them to a dental technician.’

Olive duly hands over the rather tired piece of paper which contains some very grubby-looking teeth.

He drives to Waterlooville to the dental laboratory.  ‘How long will it take?’ Thomas asks the technician.

‘Oh, about an hour, ‘smiles the dental expert.’ Then I’ll wait in the car’, says Thomas, ‘and read my newspaper.’

An hour passes and the technician appears at the car window holding a plastic bag and a piece of tissue paper.  ‘That’ll be £80, ‘requests the specialist, ‘but I could only fit four of the teeth to the denture. I’m sorry.’

‘That’s a pity’, comments Thomas, ‘what happened to the fifth one?’

‘I have it here in the tissue’, answers the techie, showing it to Thomas.

‘The thing is, he said, ‘it’s easy to fit the teeth but nigh on impossible to fit this peanut.’

Avoid Dentures

An Argentinian robber was caught after he lost his false teeth during a raid on a house. Senor Juan Navarro, from Cordoba, saw one of the three masked men who held him up lose his dentures, reports Terra Noticias Populares.  In his hurry to escape with jewelry and cash, the robber left the false teeth behind and Senor Navarro handed them over to the police. Two days after the robbery, Senor Navarro noticed his nephew suddenly seemed to have lost his teeth.

Bullet Lodges in Man’s False Teeth

Couple Escape Death:

A traumatized couple survived being killed when the bullet fired at them ricocheted off the wife’s cheek, and the husband amazingly caught it in his false teeth. This totally miraculous escape happened in Zagreb, Croatia.

Dentures advert in newspaper

Two men were fiercely arguing about an overdue debt, Will and Guy have learned from police sources. Seconds later
one of them produced a pistol and fired at the couple at point-blank range. Amazingly the bullet just grazed the cheekbone of Mirna Cavlovic and carried straight on towards her husband Stipe who caught it in his dentures.

‘I thought I was dead for sure,’ Stipe informed us, ‘I didn’t even see the bullet hit my wife. I just saw the flash of the gun’s barrel. The next thing I knew was that something hit my false teeth and I spat out the hot lead. It hurt like hell but we’re both still alive.’

Guy believes that he was probably saved because so much of the bullet’s speed had been lost when it first struck his wife’s cheek.  While Will feels that Stipe may turn it into a circus act.

The perpetrator of the crime ran from the scene but we have learned that he is now in police custody awaiting trial.

A preacher goes to the dentist for a set of dentures. The first Sunday after he got his new teeth, he could only talk in the pulpit for five minutes.

The second Sunday, his sermon lasted for ten minutes. The following Sunday, he talked for an hour and 30 minutes. The congregation had to mob him to get him down from the pulpit and they asked him what happened.

The Pastor explained that the first Sunday his gums hurt so bad he couldn’t talk for more than five minutes. The second Sunday his gums hurt too much to talk for more than 10 minutes. But, on the third Sunday, he put in his wife’s teeth by mistake and he couldn’t shut up.

Marvellous and True Elephant Dentist Story

Elephant dentist

Devidasan, a 27-year-old bull elephant from the state of Kerala in India has had his toothache removed much to his relief Will and Guy have learned.

Dentists say they have successfully repaired a working elephant’s cracked tusk in the first operation of its kind. They performed the procedure on Devidasa by filling the 50cm (19.6in) long, 4cm (1.5in) deep crack with 47 tubes of a special resin.

Amazingly, it appears that Devidasan was not tranquilized during the two-and-a-half-hour operation and he was totally cooperative throughout the procedure.

‘It was an elephantine tusk because we had to find specialist equipment and modify it,’ Dr Pradeep told us. Dr Pradeep, a professor at the PSM dental college in the town of Trichur, said that if the crack remained untreated dir would have gathered inside it and potentially caused a deadly infection.

Devidasan’s owner was eager to get the operation carried out because the crack in the tusk meant that the animal could not be used in Hindu festivals.

Now Devidasan has made a full recovery he has already made his comeback in temple festivals throughout Kerala state.

Phil Goes to a Dentist: A Clever and Silly Story

Phil Gilliland, from Northern Ireland, visits his dentist in Southsea, Portsmouth because he feels something is not quite right in his mouth.

Dr Ansari, his dentist examines him and says, ‘Phil, that new upper plate I put in for you six months ago is eroding. What have you been eating?’

Phil answers with a slight frown, ‘All I can think of is that about four months ago my wife made some asparagus and put some stuff on it that was delicious – Hollandaise

Sauce, I think it was. I loved it so much I now put it on everything: meat, toast, fish, vegetables, everything.’

‘Well,’ says Dr Ansari,’ that’s probably the problem. Hollandaise sauce is made with lots of lemon juice, which is highly corrosive. It’s eaten away your upper plate. I’ll make you a new plate, and this time use chrome.’

‘Why chrome?’ demands Phil.

To which Dr Ansari, the dentist, replies, ‘It’s simple. Everyone knows that there’s no plate like chrome for the Hollandaise.’

The hospital’s consulting dietician was giving a lecture to several community nurses from the Southampton area of Hampshire.

‘The rubbish we put into our stomachs and consume should have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is terrible. Fizzy drinks attack your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with msg. Vegetables can be disastrous because of fertilizers and pesticides and none of us realizes the long-term damage being done by the rotten bacteria in our drinking water. However, there is one food that is incredibly dangerous and we all have, or will, eat it at some time in our lives.

Now, is anyone here able to tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?’

A 65-year-old nursing sister sitting in the front row stood up and said, ‘Wedding cake.’

New Slant on Doctor’s Bed-side Manners

Hokey Pokey Doctor cartoon

‘Every GP [General Practitioner – Doctor] is to be instructed to tell fat patients that they should lose weight, putting doctors in the front line of a new offensive to tackle Britain’s growing obesity problem, ‘records The Times on May 3rd, 2006.’  In the future GPs will have to treat obesity as if it were any other medical condition and advise the overweight to slim.

It is the first time that doctors have been asked to cajole fat patients, old and young, to eat less, improve their diets, and exercise. The move by Caroline Flint, the Public Health Minister, is directed in particular at children and young people who need help to lose their excess pounds.’

Perhaps if this proves difficult we will hear this kind of conversation:

Patient: It isn’t possible that I’m as overweight as you say I am.

Doctor: Maybe you would prefer to look at it differently.  According to this chart, you’re about 10 inches too short.

Dopey Danny was an extremely nervous patient whose imagination afflicted him with all kinds of misfortunes that never materialized. One afternoon he staggered into the house. Dopey Danny was bent forward. He tottered to a chair and, still curled into a half-moon shape, dropped into it. ‘Jenny,’ he gasped, ‘it’s happened at last. There was no warning. All of a sudden I found I couldn’t straighten up. I can’t lift my head.’

When the doctor had arrived and looked at Danny, Jenny inquired, ‘Is there any hope, doc?’

‘Well,’ the GP replied, ‘it would help a great deal if he would undo the third buttonhole of his waistcoat from the top button of his trousers.’

The consultant remonstrates with Arnold and says, ‘If he’s your friend, you should get him down from there before he hurts himself.’

Corinne, the optometrist, speaks to Anil, saying, ‘All right, let’s check you out. You sit down here on this stool. You put your right hand over your right eye and read that chart on the wall over there.’

Anil puts his left hand over his left eye. The optometrist says, ‘No, no, no. Put your right hand over your right eye.’

‘What on earth happened to this patient?’ he asked in astonishment.

‘He fell out of a tree,’ according to the report.

On one particular occasion, Tim asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies. The old dear responded by saying that she was unable to eat bananas.

Tim received a considerable surprise later in the day when a very irate son came out of the ward demanding, ‘Who’s responsible for labeling my mother ‘bananas’?’

More Clean Doctor Jokes – Keep Drinking the Water

Brenda makes an appointment to see her doctor because she is worried about her husband’s bad temper.

Doctor Thomas asks: “What’s the problem?”

Brenda says: “Doctor, I don’t know what to do.  Every day my husband Jimmy seems to lose his temper for no reason. It’s beginning to scare me.”

The Doctor says: “I have a cure for that.  When it seems that Jimmy is getting angry, just take a glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don’t swallow it until he either leaves the room or calms down.”

Two weeks later Brenda returns to the doctor looking fresh and happy.

Brenda says: “Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every time my husband started losing it, I swished with water. I swished and swished, and he calmed right down! How does a glass of water do that?”

Dr Thomas says: “The water itself does nothing. It’s keeping your mouth shut that does the trick.”

reply move about 5 feet closer and say it again. Keep doing this so that we’ll get an idea about the severity of her deafness.

Sure enough, Murphy goes home and does exactly as instructed. He starts off about 15 feet from his wife in the kitchen as she is chopping some vegetables and says, ‘Betty, what’s for dinner?’ He hears no response. He moves about 5 feet closer and asks again. No reply. He moves 5 feet closer. Still no reply. He gets fed up and moves right behind her, about an inch away, and asks again, ‘Betty, what’s for dinner?’

Betty says, ‘That’s the fourth time you asked me. It’s meatloaf.’
