Sign on a church bulletin board:
You aren't too bad to come in, You aren't good enough to stay out.
There's nothing worse than a doctor's receptionist who insists you tell her
what is wrong in a room full of other patients.
I know most of us have experienced this, and I love the way this senior
citizen handled it.
An 86 year old man walked into a crowded doctor's office. As he approached
the desk, the receptionist said, "Yes sir, what are you seeing the doctor
"There's something wrong with my dick," he replied.
The receptionist became irritated and said, "You shouldn't come into a
crowded office and say things like that."
"Why not? You asked me what was wrong and I told you," he said.
The receptionist replied, "You've obviously caused some embarrassment in

The research shows men decipher female voices using the auditory part of
the brain that processes music, while male voices engage a simpler mechanism.
The Daily Mail quotes researcher Michael Hunter as saying, "the female
voice is actually more complex than the male voice, due to differences in
the size and shape of the vocal cords and larynx between men and women, and
also due to women having greater natural 'melody' in their voices".
"This causes a more complex range of sound frequencies than in a male
voice," Mr Hunter said. The report says the findings may help explain why
people suffering hallucinations usually hear male voices - the brain may
find it much harder to conjure up a false female voice accurately than a
false male voice. The research is published in the specialist magazine
