A man in a hospital bed called for his doctor & asked, “Give it to me straight.
How long have I got?” The physician replied that he doubted the man would survive the night. The man then said, “Call for my lawyer.”
When the lawyer arrived, the man asked his physician to stand on one side of the bed & the lawyer on the other. The man then laid back & closed his eyes. When asked what he had in mind, he replied:
I just thought I’d check out the same way.”
