While teaching his students, a doctor points out an x-ray to a group of medical students.
“As you can see,” he says, “the patient limps because his leg bones are bent.”
The doctor turns to one of the students and asks, “What would you do in a case like this?”
“Well,” says the student, “I suppose I’d limp, too.”
A severely injured patient needed a brain transplant and the doctor told the family, “Brains are very expensive, and you will have to pay the costs yourselves.”
“Well, how much does a brain cost?” asked the relatives.
“For a male brain, $200,000. For a female brain, $100,000,” replied the doctor.
Some of the younger male relatives tried to look shocked, but all the men nodded because they thought they understood.
But a small girl was unsatisfied and asked, “Why the difference in price between male brains and female brains?”
“Standard pricing practice,” said the doctor.
“Women’s brains have to be marked down because they’ve actually been used.”
