Picture Me This


Over at Shooting Suburbia, we have the latest incarnation of "The Spirit Takes Flight And Touches The Canopy Of Life".

Over here, well, we have this:

In the hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room, where their family member lay gravely ill. Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber. "I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news," he said as he surveyed the worried faces. "The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant.It's an experimental procedure, very risky but it is the only hope. Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to pay for the brain yourselves."

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a great length of time, someone asked, "Well, how much does a brain cost?"

The doctor quickly responded, "$5,000 for a male brain, and $200 for a female brain."

The moment turned awkward. Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the women, but some actually smirked. A man unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask. "Why is the male brain so much more?"

The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire group, "It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to mark down the price of the female brains, because they've actually been used."


  1. LOL G! Needed the laugh today :)

  2. Bruce & R: Thanks.

    I figured that it was about time I shared a e-mail that showed women in a positive light for a change. :D

  3. David: Thankee...figure it was high time that I posted something frivolous this week.

  4. Bearman: Oh, I don't know. A sunshiny rainbow perhaps?

  5. Charles: Yeah, that's about the size of it.

  6. LOL!! Great joke to welcome me back to Chicago... :)

  7. Lisa: Welcome back! :D

    Had to find a way to make my female readers feel special yesterday. :D

  8. Good chuckle for me as I sit here at lunch. You know I'll be sharing it with hubby later. LOL


Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
