Medical Humor – Four Doctors Go Hunting…

Four docs went on a duck-hunting trip together: a family practitioner, a gynecologist, a surgeon, and a pathologist.

As a bird flew overhead, the family practitioner started to shoot but decided not to because he wasn’t absolutely sure it was a duck.

The gynecologist also started to shoot, but lowered his gun when he realized he didn’t know whether it was a male or a female duck.

The surgeon, meanwhile, blew the bird away, turned to the pathologist and said, “Go see if that was a duck.”

Medical Humor – A Cardiologist’s Funeral

A cardiac specialist died and at his funeral the coffin
was placed in front of a huge mock up of a heart made up of
flowers. When the pastor finished with the sermon and
eulogy, and after everyone said their good-byes, the heart
opened, the coffin rolled inside and the heart
closed. Just then one of the mourners burst into laughter.

The guy next to him asked: “Why are you laughing?”

“I was thinking about my own funeral” the man replied.

“What’s so funny about that?”

“I’m a gynecologist.”
