My Dad, the comedian

Last week, when my Dad was checked into the rehab clinic for pneumonia, one of the nurses started asking him the standard questions that are part of the admissions process–where do you live, what’s your date of birth, what medications do you take…that sort of thing…

Everything went fine until she reached this question: “If your heart should stop, do you authorize us to get it going again?”

Without missing a beat, Dad said: “Well, that depends. Are you any good at that?”
