Although I am not political, those of you who may be politically oriented may find this amusing!

The American Medical Association has weighed in on the new Obama health care proposals:

The allergists voted to scratch it, but the
Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.

The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.

The Obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a

Ophthalmologists considered the idea short sighted.

Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Pediatricians said, "Oh Grow up!"

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness,
while the Radiologists could see right through it.

Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing. The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter.”

The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.

The Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and the Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the
entire decision up to the assholes in Washington.

              IF MY BODY WERE A CAR...

If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model.  

I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish, and my paint job is getting a little dull.

But that's not the worst of it.  

My headlights are out of focus, and it's especially hard to see things up close.

My traction is not as graceful as it once was.

I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.

My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.

It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed.

My fuel rate burns inefficiently.

But here's the worst of it -- 

                         Almost every time I sneeze, cough or laugh, either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires.





Have you received this in email yet?  These are very cute!

1) NUDITY I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening

when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark

naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the

back seat, "Mom! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt!"

2) HONESTY My son Zachary, 4, came screaming out of the bathroom to tell me

he'd dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. So I fished it out and threw it in

the garbage. Zachary stood there thinking for a moment, then ran to my bathroom

and came out with my toothbrush. He held it up and said with a charming

little smile, "We better throw this one out too then, case it fell in the toilet a

few days ago."

3) OPINIONS On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a

note from his mother. The note read, "The opinions expressed by this child are

not necessarily those of his parents."

4) KETCHUP A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar. During

her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the

phone. "Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting

the bottle."

5) MORE NUDITY A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the

women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with

ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement

and the n asked, "What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a little boy


6) POLICE # 1 While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary

school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at

my uniform, she asked, "Are you a cop?" Yes," I answered and continued

writing the report. "My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police.

Is that right? "Yes, that's right," I told her. "Well, then," she said as she

extended her foot toward me, "would you please tie my shoe?"

7) POLICE # 2 It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front

of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking,

and I saw a little boy staring in at me "Is that a dog you got back there?"

he asked. "It sure is," I replied. Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then

towards the back of the van. Finally he said," What'd he do?"

8) ELDERLY While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly

shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She

was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly

the canes, walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of

false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of

questions, she merely turned and whispered, "The tooth fairy will never

believe this!"

9) DRESS-UP A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When

she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, "Daddy, you shouldn't wear that

suit." "And why not, darling?" "You know that it always gives you a headache

the next morning."

10) DEATH While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our

minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt.

Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that

proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton

batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased. The

minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity

intoned his version of what he thought his father always said: "Glory be unto

the Faaaather, and unto the Sonnn, and into the hole he gooooes."

11) SCHOOL A little girl had just finished her first week of school. "I'm

just wasting my time," she said to her mother . "I can't read, I can't write and

they won't let me talk!"

12) BIBLE A little boy opened the big family bible. He was fascinated as he

fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He

picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had

been pressed in between the pages "Mama, look what I found," the boy called

out.  "What have you got there, dear?" With astonishment in the young boy's voice,

he answered, "I think it's Adam's underwear."

"Open Sundays," the church reciprocated with its own message:

"We are open on Sundays, too."
