We all have concerns about our health care from time to time which is perhaps why it makes such a good source for humour.

We can easily identify with the concerns expressed in jokes about aches and pains, lotions and potions, and even matters of life and death.

It means that no matter how serious or painful a medical condition might be, there’s likely to be joke about it. These are some of our favourite medical stories from Ireland and around the world.

A man goes to his doctor: “I don’t think my wife’s hearing is as good as it used to be. What should I do?”
The doctor says: “Try this test to find out for sure.
“When your wife is in the kitchen, stand fifteen feet behind her and ask her a question.
“If she doesn’t reply keep moving closer asking the question until she hears you.”
The man goes home and his wife is preparing dinner.
He stands fifteen feet behind her and says: “What’s for dinner, honey?”
No answer, so he moves to ten feet behind her and asks again.
Still no response, so he moves to five feet. still no answer.
Finally he stands directly behind her and says: “Honey, what’s for dinner?”
She replies: “For the fourth time, I SAID CHICKEN!”

And if you got that, you’re a nerd.
