Five surgeons

Programming note: I've got a lot of overtime coming up in order to help pay the mortgage on The Hill; a good chunk of my scant off-time will be spent on internal issues needing my attention. Posting here the next few weeks may be more sporadic than usual...

Today's chuckle is courtesy of my father-in-law, who fills my inbox with tidbits he gleans from his corner of the internets:

Five surgeons are discussing who has the best patients to operate on.
The first surgeon says, "I like to see accountants on my operating table
because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered."

The second responds, "Yeah, but you should try electricians! Everything
inside them is color coded."

The third surgeon says, "No, I really think librarians are the best;
everything inside them is in alphabetical order."

The fourth surgeon chimes in: "You know, I like construction workers.
Those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over at the
end, and when the job takes longer than you said it would."

But the fifth surgeon shut them all up when he observed:

"You're all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on.

There's no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains and no spine, and the
head and the ass are interchangeable..."
