“Fair fa’ yer honest sonsie face,The doctor, being somewhat taken aback, goes to the next patient, who immediately launches into:-
“Some hae meat, and canna eat,This continues with the next patient:-
“Wee sleekit cow’rin tim’rous beastie,“Well,” said the Englishman to his Scottish colleague, “I see you saved the psychiatric ward for last.”
“No, no, no,” the Scottish doctor corrected him, “this is the Serious Burns Unit.”
