Hippos

They say the path to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

I’ve looked at anatomy books and that doesn’t seem right.

That’s why I never go to doctors for open heart surgery.

Not if that’s what they’re teaching them at medical school.

Also, I’m a bit concerned about that “Hippocratic Oath”.

Why would doctors give their oath to a hippo?

It makes western medicine look like some kind of cult

or primitive religion.

I have a lot more confidence in the doctors I see on TV.

No convoluted paths to major organs.

No religions involving hippos.

They seem to know what they’re doing.

Plus they have nice hair, which instills confidence.

Some of them are also tall.

The next time I have open heart surgery I’m hiring an actor.

I would also accept a hippo as an anesthesiologist.
