AN ELDERLY man woke one morning feeling unwell. Eventually he managed to get out of bed, and walked across the road to his daughter’s house. Being hard of hearing, he asked his daughter if she would escort him to the doctor.

By the time the doctor was ready to see him, the old man was feeling really under the weather.

So the doctor checked him over. He checked his blood pressure, heart and lungs, but he couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary. So the doctor said to the old man: “In order for me to work out what’s wrong with you, I’ll need you to give me a blood sample, stool sample and urine sample.”

The poor old near-deaf man turned to his daughter and asked: “What did the doctor just say?”

“It’s okay, Dad,” she replied, “you just need to give the doctor your underpants.”
