A Little Humor: Replaced By The Inch
A man woke up in the hospital and discovered that he was bandaged from head to foot.
The doctor came in and said, “Ah, I see you’ve regained consciousness. Now, you probably won’t remember, but you were in a pile up on the freeway. You’re going to be OK, you’ll walk again and everything, but something happened.
"I’m trying to break this gently, but the fact is, your penis was chopped off in the wreck, and we were unable to find it.”
The man groans, but the doctor went on, “You’ve got $20,000 in insurance compensation coming to you, and we have the technology now to build you a new penis that will work as well as your old one did, better in fact!
“But the thing is, it doesn’t come cheap. It’s $2,000 an inch.”
The man perks up at this. “So,” the doctor said, “It’s for you to decide how many inches you want, but it’s something you’d better discuss with your wife.”
The man agreed to talk with his wife.
The doctor came back the next day and asked, “So, have you spoken with your wife?”
“I have,” says the man.
“And has she helped you in making the decision?” asked the doctor.
“She has,” said the man.
“And what is it?” asked the doctor.
“We’re getting a new kitchen.”
