Inferiority complex

A Saudi prince went to Germany to study. A month later, he sends a letter to his dad saying: "Berlin is wonderful, people are nice and I really like it here, but Iím a bit ashamed to arrive to school in my gold Mercedes when all my teachers travel by train."

Sometime later, he gets a letter from his dad with a $10 million check saying, "Stop embarrassing us, go and get yourself a train too."

Clean shirt

"Didnít you suspect burglars had been in the house when you saw all the drawers pulled out and the contents scattered all over the floor?" asked the policeman.

"No, I just thought my husband had been looking for a clean shirt," replied the woman.

Kidney transplant

An ailing man was on the kidney transplant list and it was a tense time for the entire family.

One day, the phone rang and his teenage son answered. It was the hospital with good news.

"Dad!" he yelled excitedly, "Your parts are in."

Too late

An orthopaedic surgeon was moving to a new office, with the help of his staff. One of the nurses placed the display skeleton on the front of her car, with a bony arm thrown across the back of the seat.

On the drive across the town, she stopped at a traffic light, and the stares of the people in the neighbouring car compelled her to roll down her window and yell, "Iím delivering him to my doctorís office." The other driver leaned out of his window. "I hate to tell you, lady," he said, "but I think itís too late."

Cough practice

The doctor was making his rounds and walked into the semi-private room in the hospital to examine Mrs. Williams. After examining her, in his best professional voice, he said smoothly, "You are coughing much more easily this morning."

"I should," snapped the patient, "Iíve been practising all night."
