Modern Medical Care

“You’ve been shot six times,” said Doctor Langley. “The surgery was successful, but it’s unlikely you’ll live.”

“But Doc!” said Future Man. “I have super healing. The wounds are almost gone!”

Langley shook his head. “You haven’t seen my doctor’s bill yet.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    I’ve seen some of those bills. Does the good doctor know that if the patient dies, he doesn’t get paid?

      The cost for something even minor is just outrageous. The thought of getting a splinter makes me nervous. The physical pain is nothing compared to the financial pain. I think the doctor needs to work on his bedside manner too. 😉 Thanks Tina! 🙂
