Comparing Fees

Friday, May 23, 2003

A doctor is talking to a car mechanic, "Your fee is several times more per hour then we get paid for medical care."

"Yeah, but you see, doc, you have always the same model, it hasn't changed since Adam; but we have to keep up to date with new models coming every month."

I'm laughing on the inside. No, really.

Isn't the mechanic/doctor joke supposed to go something like this:

Mechanic: Hey, doc, how come heart surgeons get paid so much money when we do exactly the same thing? You change valves; we change valves. You change the pump out, and we change pumps out. You disconnect and connect tubes to do it, and so do I. And the heart's not really much more complicated than a carburator.

Doctor: Try doing it with the engine running.

I still think my Bishop's visit to the school takes a bit of beating

Help, I'm as lost as I was on that "1+1+1 = 3 !" comment. What does this mean?

(Btw, I saw John's post that clarified your math, but before that I went where that other poster did and wondered if you meant three factorial, which still seemed weird.)

Hi TL,

John, being the good critical reader that he is, realised that I had made a mistake in my post.

I should have written 1+1+1=1

This is a wee dig at the concept of the trinity.

Brian,

I caught the dig at the trinity once John posted. What's the bishop's visit to the school?

EEK!

A bishop visits a high school and is having a chat with a class full of kids.

He asks the first one what his beliefs are and he says that he is a Christian, reborn by the Blood of Christ, saved by his sacrifice and grace.

The Bishop then asked the next child, he said much the same.

After asking a few he comes to this boy.

Bishop 'Well my son what is your faith'

Boy 'I am an atheist sir'

Bishop 'an atheist, God help you, why are you an atheist?'

Boy 'Well my dad is an atheist'

Bishop 'Oh so your dad is an atheist so that makes you an athiest'

Boy 'Well I suppose so'

Bishop 'Well what if your dad was a wife beater, or a racist, or spread lies, or beat up his children?'

Boy 'Ah, well then I would be a Christian'

It is a sort of 'you had to be there' type of joke

Scholars have long debated the exact ethnicity, nationality, and
gender of Jesus. Recently, at a theological meeting in Rome, scholars
had a heated debate on this subject. One by one, they offered their
evidence.

They presented three proofs that Jesus was Mexican.
1. His first name was Jesus
2. He was bilingual.
3. He was always harassed by the authorities.

But then there were equally good arguments that Jesus was Black.
1. He called everybody "brother".
2. He liked Gospel music.
3. He couldn't get a fair trial.

Then there were equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish.
1. He went into His Father's business.
2. He lived at home until he was 33.
3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin, and his Mother thought he was God.

There were equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian.
1. He talked with his hands.
2. He had wine with every meal.
3. He used olive oil.

And equally good arguments that Jesus was Californian.
1. He never cut his hair.
2. He walked around barefoot.
3. He started a new religion.

And equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish.
1. He never got married.
2. He was always telling stories.
3. He loved green pastures.

But the most compelling evidence were "Three Statements" that would
prove that Jesus was a woman.

1. He had to feed a crowd at a moment's notice when there
was no food.
2. He kept trying to get the message across to a bunch of
men who just didn't get it.
3. Even when He was dead, He had to get up because there
was more work for Him to do.
