Sorry if any of you have heard this, I just received it in email and had to share!

A patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose, still heavily sedated from a difficult, four hour procedure. A student nurse enters his room to give him a sponge bath. "Nurse", he mumbles, from behind the mask." Are my testicles back"?

Embarassed,the young nurse replies,"I don't know sir,I'm only here to wash your upper body and your feet".

He struggles to ask again,"nurse,are my testicles back"?

Concerned that the man may elevate his vitals from worry about his testicles,she overcomes her embarassment and sheepishly pulls back the covers. She raises his gown,holds his you know what in one hand and his testicles in the other,lifting and moving them around. Then, she takes a close look and says "there's nothing wrong with them,sir".

The man pulls off his oxygen mask,smiles at her and says very slowly, "thank you very much. That was wonderful, but, listen very closely...... Are-my-test-results-back"?
