Brain Transplant

Now then…  Ladies. Please bear with me on this. It’s not quite what you might immediately think…

 

In the hospital, where their family member lay gravely ill, the relatives gathered in the waiting room.

Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and sombre. “I’m afraid I’m the bearer of bad news,” he said, as he surveyed the worried faces. “The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant. It’s an experimental procedure – very risky – but it is the only hope and insurance will cover the procedure. However, you’ll have to pay for the actual brain yourselves.”

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After some considerable time, someone asked, “Well, how much does a brain cost?”

The doctor quickly responded, “£5,000 for a male brain, and £200 for a female brain.”

The moment turned awkward. Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the women, but some actually smirked.

A man, unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, “Why is the male brain so much more?”

The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire group, “It’s just standard pricing procedure… We have to mark down the price of the  female brains, because they’ve actually been used.”

See… I told you so!
