Joe has been having severe headaches for several years now and
his wife finally convinced him to see a neurologist.
The doctor said, Joe, the good news is I can cure you headaches.
The bad news is that, it will require castration.
You have a very rare condition,
which causes your testicles,
to press on your spine,
and the pressure creates one hell of a headache.
The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles.
Joe was shocked, and depressed.
He wondered if he had anything to live for.
He had no choice but to go under the knife.
When he left the hospital,
he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years,
but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself.
He walked down the street,
he realized that he felt like a different person.
He could make a new beginning, and live a new life.
He saw a men's clothing store and thought,
that's what I need . . . a new suit.
He entered the shop, and told the salesman, I'd like a new suit.
The elderly tailor eyed him briefly,
and said, let's see . . size 44 long.
Joe laughed, that's right, how did you know?
Been in the business 60 years, the tailor said.
Joe tried on the suit.
It fit perfectly.
As Joe admired himself in the mirror,
the salesman asked, how about a new shirt?
Joe thought for a moment, and then said, sure.
The salesman eyed Joe, and said,
let's see, 34 sleeves, and 16 1/2 neck.
Joe was surprised, that's right, how did you know?
Been in the business 60 years.
Joe tried on the shirt, and it fit perfectly.
He walked comfortably around the shop,
and the salesman asked, how about some new underwear?
Joe thought for a moment and said, sure.
The salesman said, let's see . . . size 36.
Joe laughed, ah ha!!
I got you,
I've worn a size 34 since
I was 18 years old.
The salesman shook his head,
you can't wear a size 34.
A size 34 would press your testicles
up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache.
New suit - $400
New shirt - $36
New underwear - $6
Second Opinion... PRICELESS!!!
