The Long and the Short of It

Another original from Chris Cole.

Recently an NBA player went in for arthroscopic surgery on both knees at the same time. Somehow, the doctor really screwed up and the player came out of surgery six inches shorter than when he went in.

Well, the player was outraged and royally chewed out the doctor, who, in a fit of pique of his own, responded by insulting the NBA star, making snide jokes about his sudden post-surgical shortness. The player hobbled off, grumbling and swearing under his breath, complaining he would no longer be able to work for a living as a basketball player. The doctor turned to his nurse and smiled, making another joke at the now too-short NBA player as he left. The nurse gave a stern warning to give to the doctor, saying, “I’d be careful, if I were you, Doctor. It’s not wise to make fun of a dissed, grunting, post-tall worker.”
