Today’s Topic: What is Funny about a Veterinarian?
In the past I’ve shared my favorite doctor, lawyer, and engineer jokes. Today, it’s the turn of veterinarians. Thanks to two new friends — Jeannette and Edward Cole — both veterinarians — for the first two jokes. If you can top these, please do. Experts — please chime in. Correct, elaborate, elucidate.
VET JOKE #1 -
1.) What do you call a veterinarian that only works on one species?
2.) A physician.
VET JOKE #2 — “Second, Third Opinions on the Death of a Hamster
1.) Not happy with the vet’s diagnosis the man asks for a second opinion.
The vet gives a whistle and in strolls a Labrador dog.
The dog nudges the hamster around with its nose and sniffs it a couple oftimes before shaking his head. “There” says the vet,” Your hamster is dead”.
2.) Still not happy the man asks for a third opinion. The vet opens the back door and in bounds a cat. The cat jumps onto the table and looks the hamster up and down for a few minutes before looking up and shaking it’s head.
“It’s definitely dead sir”, says the vet.
3.) Convinced, the man enquires how much he owes. “That will be $1000, please”. “A $1000 just to tell me my hamster is dead” fumes the man.
“Well”, says the vet, “There’s my diagnosis, the lab report and the cat scan”.
VET JOKE #3 — my pick from a quick internet search
1.) I want to weigh the pros and cons of being a veterinarian.
2.) On the one hand, you get bitten a lot. On the other hand you get bitten less.
