Jokes of the week
A lawyer was talking to a doctor on the stand. He asked the doctor, "Well, did you check the patient's pulse before you started the autopsy?"
No, the doctor said.
"Well, what about checking his blood pressure?"
No, I didn't check that either.
"Doctor, how can you make sure the patient was actually dead?"
"You see, his brain was sitting in a jar on my desk. I'm pretty sure he was dead."

"Son, let's go," the father said. "We need to get your mother into one of these things."
