‘Send in the next patient please, and make it quick before I sneeze’, asked the Doctor, if you will, as he was almost always ill. His first patient was Arthur Lock, and he said ‘you know what doc, I don’t think you’re all that well, your patients you will need to tell!’ ‘Fiddlesticks’ was the docs response 'I’ve only sneezed just the once. It’s you I fear will be at risk if we don’t sort out your slipped disk!' His next patient was Farmer Jones. He was only skin and bones and after he’d examined him he said the news was pretty grim. 'If you sneeze you’ll break in two and so I’ve got some news for you. If you catch what I have got then that might just be your lot!!' Next in line was Shirley Best. The doctor said she needed rest then sneezed covering her face, she screamed and called him 'a disgrace!' The next patient was rather weird a big chap with a six foot beard. The doc suggested that he shave but he replied ‘man that would be grave!’ The beard was long to keep at bay the ailments caught day to day. ‘I used to sneeze all day long until my beard grew six feet long’. ‘Eureka!’ was the docs reply, for the evidence he could not deny. The problem was at four foot two a six foot beard would never do!
