A doctor says grimly to a patient, “You are a very sick man. You’ve been diagnosed
with covid, monkey pox, swine flu, Ebola, and bubonic plague all at the same time.”
“Is there anything that can be done to help me?” asks the patient.
“Amazingly, there is,” says the doctor. “First, we’ll put you in a private room where
you’ll have everything you need to be as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Next,
we’ll put you on a diet of pancakes and flounder.”
“Okay…” says the patient, “But why pancakes and flounder?”
“Because,” the doctor says, “That’s the only food we can slide under your door!”
