Another Opinion

by Bob Phillips, adapted from The World's Greatest Collection of Clean Jokes
 

For years, a man complained of a ringing in his ears and popping pressure in his eyes. One doctor recommended implanting a drainage tube in the man's ear. But the tube made no difference.

Another physician suggested reconstructive surgery on the man's nose. But after months of healing from this procedure, the man still complained of constant ringing in his ears and pressure in his eyes.

A third specialist gave him the most grim outlook of all: "You've got about a year to live-at most."

With this latest prognosis weighing on his spirit, the man decided to make the last year of his life the best one. He booked passage on a world cruise, then visited the best tailor in town. He ordered 15 custom suits and twice as many hand-tailored shirts.

The tailor took the man's measurements. "Sleeve 35, collar-"

"I wear a 15," said the man.

"Your measurement is 17 ¼," replied the tailor.

"There must be some mistake," said the man. "I've always worn a 16 collar."

"I can't imagine that," said the tailor. "A collar that small would cut the oxygen off from your brain, your ears would ring, and your eyes would feel like they were about to pop right out of your head."
