Surgeons at a Convention

Category: Puns, Rated PG-13

Five surgeons are having drinks together at a surgical convention and making jokes.

The first, a Florida surgeon, says: “I like to see accountants on my operating table, because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.”

The second, a Michigan surgeon, responds: “Yeah, but you should try electricians. Everything inside of them is color coded.”

The third, a California surgeon, says: “No, I really think librarians are the best; everything inside of them is in alphabetical order.”

The fourth, a New York surgeon, chimes in: “You know, I like construction workers. Those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over.”

But the fifth, from Washington D.C. shut them all up when he observed, “You’re all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There’s no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains, no spine, and the head and the ass are interchangeable.

    Mine is a lawyer joke and has one more surgeon:
    Six surgeons were sitting around discussing their favorite patients when the first stated that he especially enjoyed operating on poets and artists because . . .

    “When I cut them open, they are filled with beautiful colors and the operating room is bathed in wonderful light.”

    “No way!” said the second surgeon, “I prefer operating on accountants. Inside everything is neat and orderly and all the parts are numbered.”

    “Nah,” said the third surgeon, “librarians are the best. Everything inside them is in alphabetical order.”
    The fourth responds: “Try electricians, man! Everything inside them is color coded!”

    The fifth intercedes: “Personally, I prefer engineers. They always understand when you have a few parts left over at the end.”

    “You’re all wrong,” said the sixth surgeon, “The best are lawyers. No guts, no heart, no spine. They only have two parts — their mouths and their rears, and both of these are interchangeable!”
