A man took his dog to the vet and requested cutting off its tail. "Why such a request," the doctor inquired?

After listening to this problem, the doctor stated that this is the flu season and that he has been calling his patients telling them that a big bug is going around.

A husband was in big trouble when he forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife told him, "Tomorrow there had better be something in the driveway for me that goes from zero to 200 in two seconds flat.
