What’s your favorite nursing joke?

I was treating a patient with end stage COPD. He was on 7 liters O2 on a non-rebreather. I went in to get vitals when he said to me, "are my testicles black?"

I'm like .... ummmmmmmm. I don't think so but probably not.

He says, "do you think you can do your job and look??"

So I lifted the blanket and I said, "no sir, I don't see any discoloration at all."

He takes off his non-rebreather and says, "I said, ARE MY TEST RESULTS BACK???"

Many years ago I worked in ED.
A woman called in asking if she needed to get "checked out?"
I asked what was going on.
"Well, last night we had some friends over to watch the game. I probably had too much to drink. Anyway, I started choking on some and my friend had to do the hymen remover on me."
At this point I had to put her on hold. Our attending walked past and I explained the situation to him.
Without blinking an eye he told me to ask if she needed a pregnancy test or a throat exam.
Hyman remover on me."
