Quote from: ThomasR99 on October 04, 2018, 11:45:58 pmA man was set for a physical and needed to submit a urine specimen. Deciding to have a little fun, he mixed his urine w/some from his son, daughter, wife and dog. At the appointment his doctor told him he had good news and bad news."Give me the good news first, Doctor", the man stated. The doctor replied, "You're in perfect health!"."Well, what's the bad news then?" the man asked.Replied the doctor: "Your wife's having an affair with the postman, your son is gay, your daughter is pregnant and your dog has the mange.".Rimshot.
