Thurles Humour

A woman and a baby were seated in the doctors surgery here in Thurles, Co. Tipperary. Both were waiting for the male doctor to arrive in, for the baby’s first 6 weeks examination.

When the doctor arrived, he began immediately to examine the baby. However, on checking the baby’s weight he became rather concerned and enquired if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed.

“Oh, Breast-fed”, the woman stated assuredly.

On informing her of his concerns he asked, “Perhaps you might strip down to your waist for me please”, said the doctor.

The woman quickly complied with his request.

The physician, first took her blood pressure, before gently squeezed both of her nipples, and then pressing and kneaded both of her ample breasts, briefly, in his efforts to give his now patient, a most professional and detailed examination.

Then motioning to her to get dressed again, the doctor stated “I fully understand why your baby is so under-weight; you don’t have any breast milk”.

“I fully agree with your diagnosis doctor”, said the woman, “but what has these facts got to do with the weight of the baby, I’m the baby’s grandmother.”
