surgeons sharing their major achievement
surgeons were seated together at a medical conference
dinner table when one speaks up and says: "Last
year I had a very unusual and difficult case.
This person came to me with every finger on
their right hand severely broken in multiple
locations asking me to surgically repair the
damage. Well after six long hours of orthopedic
surgery, I successfully repaired the damage
and today this person is performing with the
Boston Symphony as a concert pianist again."
that's impressive," his fellow colleagues all
exclaimed in unison. Then one of the other surgeons
speaks up and says: "Yes, very impressive indeed,
but let me tell you about a patient I had last
year too. This gentlemen came to me with two
legs that had been severed just below the knee
and his right arm severed above the elbow and
he wanted me to repair all the damage. After
long multiple surgeries I am pleased to report
that this person will be competing in the next
Iron Man Triathalon."
is very impressive," the others exclaimed while
looking in admiration upon the very gifted surgeon.
the third surgeon who had waited his turn spoke
up. "Both of your achievements were extremely
impressive and I am honored to be in the company
of such excellence but I must tell you about
a recent patient of mine. This gentlemen had
been out riding a horse on his ranch when he
ran smack head on into a freight train going
60 miles an hour down the track. All that I
had to work with was a cowboy hat and the horse's
asshole. I performed many long arduous surgeries
and am pleased to report that this gentlemen
is now President of the United States.
