Why So Serious? 12 Best Doctor Jokes By Reader’s Digest
For many of us, the thought of visiting a doctor or a hospital invokes strong emotions. Some of us feel quite paranoid about having to visit a hospital. We dread the smell of medicines and we feel depressed by the dull grey colours. We hate the thought of being interrogated by a doctor on our health condition. But, this association of a hospital with seriousness and gravity is not universally true. Most of the times, it is just the result of social conditioning.
There are many doctors who are jovial, approachable, warm and some of them, humorous too. In fact, most doctors who have a sense of humour have a better success rate of curing their patients with their jokes alone. Laughter is indeed the best medicine in such cases.
There are many hospitals which have broken the stereotype by using bright saturated colours on their walls. In fact, if you walk into our CARE Hospitals at Hi-tech City or our CARE Outpatient Centre in Banjara Hills (Hyderabad), you’ll be surprised by the bright hues.
Keeping the same spirit, we wish to break the pattern on our blog too. We’ve had enough of health tips and infographics! Hence, we bring to you some of the best doctor and medical jokes published in Reader’s Digest over the past few decades.
