Goober turns toward talk of medical specialists

Ya know, I specializes in pickin' football games, but doctors is the best specialists I know of.

I know five surgeon specialists and I wuz talkin' with them one day about who had the easiest specialized area.

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

The second responds, "Yeah, but you should try electricians! Everything inside them is color coded."

The third surgeon says, "No, I really think librarians are the best; everything inside them is in alphabetical order."

The fourth surgeon chimes in: "You know, I like engineers. Those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over at the end, and

when the job takes longer than you said it would."

But the fifth surgeon shut them all up when he observed: "You're all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There's no guts, no heart, and no spine, and the head and butt are interchangeable."

One thing that's the same, they all has to wait an hour in the waitin' room before the doctor comes in.

Welp, someone got sick fer the second time in 25 years and I didn't git my picks in last week. It weren't a bad week at 11-5, but I don't gits to count it. I wuz 10-3 the first week. Maybe the old 103-degree temperature sissy will type my story before he weenies out again.
