A male patient is lying in bed in the hospital,
wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose, still
heavily sedated from a difficult four hour, surgical
procedure. A young student nurse appears to give him a
partial sponge bath.


Nurse', he mumbles, from behind the mask 'Are my
testicles black?'


Embarrassed, the young nurse replies 'I don't know,
Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet.'


He struggles to ask again, 'Nurse, are my testicles
black?'


Concerned that he may elevate his vitals from worry
about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment
and sheepishly pulls back the covers.


She raises his gown, holds his penis in one hand and
his testicles in the other, lifting and moving them
around. Then, she takes a close look and says, 'There's
nothing wrong with them, Sir !!'


The man pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her and
says very slowly,
'Thank you very much. That was wonderful, but listen
very, very closely......
