Diptheria? Why doctor, Mary hasn’t been anywhere except school!!! (Photo credit: Government & Heritage Library, State Library of NC)

Patient: Doctor, doctor. I’ve come out in spots like cherries on a cake.

Doctor: Ah, you must have analogy.


From the Daily Mail again.

    It’s late at night and I’m a little tired…it took me a minute to get this! LOL! Very clever! 🙂

    that’s quite poetic (well it would be if it was a simile) 😉

    Good one! Even first thing in the morning.

    Very good. Though that cartoonist can’t spell dypHtheria. Not that I’m blaming you, you understand.

    Ok, I actually laughed out loud. I’m not sure what that says about me, and prefer not top speculate. Keep em coming

    I had to think a moment …. I’m slow in the morning. My first response was “huh?” but a moment later …… “OH!!! Clever!”

      It’s a clever play on words:

      analogy – similar to a simile, to say something is like something

      an allergy

        Okay, thanks for coming back … to me and explaining.

          My pleasure. I’m afraid some jokes just get lost in translation.

          If you want revenge, send me a Swedish joke (i.e. a joke in Swedish) – and then see how much I can understand of it.

          None, is being my guess 😀


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
