Dr. Geezer & Dr. Young

An old geezer became very bored in retirement and decided to open a medical clinic. He put a sign up outside that said: “Dr. Geezer’s Clinic. Get your treatment for $500. If not cured, get back $1,000.” 

Doctor “Young,” who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000. So he went to Dr. Geezer’s clinic. 

Dr. Young: “Dr. Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me?” 

Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr. Young’s mouth.” 

Dr. Young: “Aaagh!! This is gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.” 

Dr. Young gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days figuring to recover his money. 

Dr. Young: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.” 

Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.” 

Dr. Young: “Oh, no you don’t…that is gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will be $500.” 

Dr. Young (after having lost $1000) leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.

Dr. Young: “My eyesight has become weak…I can hardly see anything!!!! 

Dr. Geezer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so here’s your $1000 back.” (giving him a $10 bill) 

Dr. Young: “But this is only $10!” 

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500.” 

Moral of story: Just because you’re “Young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an “old Geezer”!

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What are you making, Mulligan…stew???” Bee Boop!!
