Friday Funnies: Cold & Flu Season

The doctor tells the patient he has very bad flu. The patient says he wants a second opinion. The doctor says, ”Okay, you’re ugly too.”

* * *

Seems like everyone either has the cold or flu, or knows someone who is sick. I guess it's that time of the year. And while illness that turns serious is no laughing matter, sometimes a little levity to go with your stuffy nose is a good thing.
 
According to MSN Healthy Living, "Laughter has been shown to trigger the body's protective cells, especially the white blood cells called T cells, which originate in the thymus and are key immune-system organizers.
 
"Though a 2009 review in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary Medicine says the research connecting mirth and immunity is "tentative," in part because it's hard to measure, a Monty Python marathon can't hurt. Laughter lowers stress, which is also known to impact the immune system."

So, laugh away...and here's wishing you good health!
 
 
The Blonde Flu
 
A blonde walks into a doctor's office and says, "Doc, I'm horribly sick!"
 
The doctor looks at her and asks, "Flu?"
 
"No, I drove here."
 
 
Cure for the Flu
 
Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had never been married. She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.
 
One afternoon, the pastor came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room. She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea. As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, the young minister noticed a cut glass bowl set on top of it. The bowl was filled with water and, in the water floated, of all things, a condom. Imagine his shock and surprise!
 
When she returned with tea and scones, they began to chat. The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer resist.
 
"Miss Beatrice," he said as he pointed to the bowl, "I wonder if you would tell me about this."
 
"Oh, yes," she replied, "Isn't it wonderful? I was walking through the park a few months ago and I found this little package on the ground. The directions said to put it on your organ and keep it wet, and it would prevent the spread of disease. And, you know, I think it's working. I haven't had the flu all winter!"
