Joke of the Day

Working in a film production office often entails long hours, hard work, and dealing with "difficult" people. So to alleviate any tensions I've instituted the Joke of the Day.

It's quite simple: Every afternoon it's one employee's turn to tell a joke. It can be as simple as a "knock, knock" joke and it can be totally clean or totally blue. The only requisite is that you have to have the courage to tell it.

Yesterday it was my turn, and here's the joke I told:

A male patient is lying in a hospital bed wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose. A pretty, young, student nurse arrives to give him a partial sponge bath.

"Nurse," he mumbles from behind the mask. "Are my testicles black?"

Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet."

He struggles to ask again. "Nurse, please check. Are my testicles black?"

Concerned that he may elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worry about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles in the other.

She takes a close look and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir!"

The man pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her and says very slowly: "Thank you very much. That was wonderful, but, listen very, very closely......

A r e - m y - t e s t - r e s u l t s - b a c k ?"

The office laughed. Hope you did too.
