Joke of the Week

While making rounds, a doctor points out an X-ray to a group of medical students.

"As you can see," she says, "the patient limps because his left fibula and tibia are radically arched. Charles, what would you do in a case like this?"

"Well," ponders the student, "I suppose I'd limp too."
