An intern was sent to collect a new skeleton from the central store.
When he arrived at the consultant surgeon’s office there was already
a queue of patients waiting. As the intern wrestled the skeleton through
the outside door he became aware of people gazing at him enquiringly.
He gave them a smile and said, ‘I am bringing him to the doctor.’
An old lady said sympathetically, ‘My dear! Isn’t he a bit late for the doctor?’
