Saturday Stupidity XXI

A man was brought in to the hospital intensive care ward, put in a bed, with tubes coming out everywhere. A week later, another man was admitted, in a similar condition. Both lay there, machines pinging, fluids dripping, etc.

A couple of weeks passed before one of them had the strength to turn towards the other and say:

“Scottish.”

The other turned his head slowly and said:

“Irish.”

This act tired them out so badly it was a week before the first summoned up the strength to say:

“Glasgow.”

Again the second replied in a frail voice:

“Dublin.”

Once more, the strain was too much for them both and they passed out. Days passed before the first man managed to force out the word:

“Jimmy.”

Replied the other:

“Paddy.”

A few hours later, Jimmy managed just enough strength to rasp out weakly:

“Cancer.”

Paddy responded:

“Sagittarius.”
