funny jokes and a touching story

So Ashli had a funny surgery joke on her blog today ( which made me crack up. Then I was online trying to find jokes about cancer (not a funny topic but a good friend was just diagnosed and was asking for some humorous jokes about cancer to lighten his day - so I found one....What do you call insects with cancer? MalignANT and BEEnign). And I found these jokes about orthopedic surgeons...

3 orthopaedic surgeons took 55 days to do a jigsaw and were proud of their achievement.
When asked why they were so proud they said because it said 2-3 years on the box.

At an orthopaedic meeting how can you spot the academic orthopaedic surgeon?
He's the one who can just get his knuckles off the floor!

What's the difference between a carpenter and an orthopaedic surgeon?
A carpenter knows more than one antibiotic!

How do you hide a twenty pound note from an orthopaedic surgeon?
Put it in a text book!

How do you spot the orthopaedic surgeon's car in the car park?
It's the Porsche with a comic on the back shelf!

What's the difference between a rhinoceros and an orthopaedic surgeon?
One's thick-skinned, small-brained and charges a lot for no very good reason....the other's a rhinoceros.

What do you call two orthopaedic surgeons looking at a chest X-ray?
A double blind study.

The definition of shifting dullness - an orthopaedic ward round.

Why do anaesthetists take an instant dislike to orthopaedic surgeons?
Because it saves time

How do you get an Orthopaedic Surgeon to refer you to some one else?

Ask him the time.

Patrick will probably not find these so funny - but I got a laugh.

On a more serious note about our friend, Mark. We visited Mark (a med school buddy of Patrick), his wife Amy and daughter Abby over Labor Day. They told us they had some good news and bad news to share with us. The good news - Amy was expecting their second child. The bad news - Mark was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia. These are two of the nicest people we have ever met who DO NOT deserve to go through anything like this (but who does, right?). I am attaching the link to Mark's website for you to read. Their story is touching, funny, sad - basically all the emotions one can feel towards a family going through this. Please take the time to visit the site and help Mark through prayers and well wishes!
