Post-Surgical Recovery

A man is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask and 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 student replies, "I don't know, sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body."

He struggles up to his elbows and asks again, "Nurse, are my testicles black?"

Concerned that he may cause complications from worry about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and slowly pulls back the covers.

The man doesn't move, so she raises his gown, takes his penis in one hand and his testicles in the other. Then, she takes a close look and says, "There's nothing wrong with them that I can see, sir!"

The man pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her weakly and says very slowly, "Thank you very much. That was wonderful. But listen very, very closely..." he says, clearing his throat.

"A r e ... m y ... t e s t ... r e s u l t s ... b a c k ?"
