Always Get A Second Opinion
The man returns a couple of days later and the doctor says, "I've got bad news for you, you've contracted Mongolian VD. It's very rare and almost unheard of here in the US, we know very little about it."
The man looks a little perplexed and says "Well, give me a shot or something and fix me up, Doc."
The doctor answers, "I'm sorry, there's no known cure. We're going to have to amputate."
The man screams in horror, "Absolutely not! I want a second opinion!"
The doctor replies, "Well, it's your choice. Go ahead, if you want, but surgery is your only option."
The next day, the man seeks out a Chinese doctor, figuring that he'll know more about the disease. The Chinese doctor does the examination and proclaims, "Ah, yes, Mongolian VD. Vewy ware disease."
The guy says to the doctor, "Yeah, yeah, I already know that, but what can we do? My American doctor wants to cut it off!"
The Chinese doctor shakes his head and laughs. "Stupid American docttah, always want opawate. Make more money dat way.... No need amputate!"
"Oh, thank you!" the man exclaims.
"Yes," says the Chinese doctor, "Wait two week....Fall off by itself !"
