The Old Man and the Doctor

老人與醫生

An old man went to the doctor complaining of impotency. The doctor examined him before saying, "Take this bottle of pills, take three daily and come back next week to see if they’re working."

有一個老人去看醫生,抱怨說他有陽萎。醫生檢查後說:「拿著這一瓶藥丸,每日服三粒,下個星期回來看看是否有效.」

 

The following week the old man returned to the doctor who asked, "Any improvement?"

一個星期後,老人回來看醫生。醫生問:「有改善嗎?」

 

The man shook his head and said, "I tried with my right hand, then with my left hand and then my wife tried with her right hand and then with her left hand. The milkman arrived and he tried with his left hand and then his right hand."

老人搖頭說:「我先用我的右手試,然後用我的左手。接著我太太用她的右手試,然後用她的左手。後來,送牛奶的人來了,他先用他的左手試,然後用他的右手。」

 

"You mean you let the milkman have a go?" asked the doctor incredulously.

「你的意思是說,你也讓送牛奶的人試了?」醫生用懷疑的語氣問。

 

"Yes," replied the old man "but we still couldn't get the bloody top off the bottle." ”「是的。」老人回答,「但是我們仍然無法打開該死的瓶蓋!」
