From http://www.ajokeaday.com -
|Doctor Bloomfield, who was known for
extraordinary treatment of arthritis, had a waiting room full of people
when a little old lady, almost bent over in half, shuffled in slowly,
leaning on her cane.
When her turn came, she went into the doctor's office and, amazingly,
emerged within 5 minutes walking completely erect with her head held
A woman in the waiting room who had seen all this rushed up to the
little old lady and said, "It's a miracle! You walked in bent in half
and now you're walking erect. What did that doctor do?"
"Gave me a longer cane."
