A concerned parent brings in a child who’s skin has worryingly turned orange.
“Has he been eating a lot of carrots?”
“Ooh, no, he can’t stand them.”
(after a pause)
“Does he drink Sunny Delight?”
“Oooh, yes, he loves it! Can’t get enough of it.”
Imagine if you had to treat a patient called Brian Brain without laughing…
A young lady comes in. Despite being on the pill, she’s pregnant. Then she explains that she’s been INSERTING the pills because she didn’t know what “ORAL CONTRACEPTIVE” meant!
