Contribution from Mr Bojangles
A man brought his motionless dog, which seemed to be dead, to a vet just to make sure.
The vet placed the dog on the examination table and brought in a live cat which he used to circle above the dog’s head a few times. Of course the cat meowed loudly but the dog did not stir. “I’m sorry, but your dog is dead”, he told the owner.
The vet then wrote out a bill for $450. “What!” protested the man. “$450 for an examination that took less than 5 minutes?”
“Well”, said the vet, “$50 is for consultation and $400 is the cost of the CAT scan”.
