Experimental brain transplants

My sister sent this to me…and I just had to share…

Relatives gathered in the waiting room of a hospital, where a family member lay gravely ill.

The doctor finally came in, looking tired and somber. “I’m afraid I’m the bearer of bad news,” he said, surveying the worried faces. “The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant. It’s an experimental procedure…very risky, but it is the only hope. Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to pay for the brain yourselves.”

The family members sat in silence, absorbing the news.OrganFlyIntoAir[1] After a few minutes, someone asked, “Well, how much does a brain cost?”

The doctor quickly responded, “$5,000 for a male brain, and $200 for a female brain.”

The moment turned awkward. Avoiding eye contact with the women, the men in the room tried not to smile, but a few couldn’t help but smirk. Finally, one of the guys blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, “Why is the male brain so much more?”

The doctor smiled at their childish innocence and explained, “It’s just standard pricing procedure. We have to mark down the price of the female brains, because they’ve actually been used.”


  1. It was my birthday yesterday 17th and this post did make me laugh, I have this sneaky feeling that there is an element of truth in this joke.

    Margaret while I am here I would like to let you know, that an Anthology of my poems “A Power Within” was published this week. It is a truly good looking book and they are selling so very fast indeed!!

    They would make very nice Christmas gifts and would look beautiful on any coffee table. Proceeds of course are going to Multiple Myeloma – please take a look if you can. I would hate for you to miss the postal dates for Xmas, should you wish to purchase one for a gift. My very best wishes to you.x

  2. I suppose Albert Einstein’s brain was never used.

    I just wonder why you’d publish hostile jokes such as this. Men try to be fair to women, but when they are ridiculed…

    Men treasure and value the women in their lives. It would not occur to us to make such a joke as it is demeaning.

    If I heard my wife make such a joke, I would be highly offended, and would tell her so.

    There is an old joke that makes a lot of sense. Men don’t understand women, and they realize it. Women don’t understand men, but they think they do.

  3. When I publish a joke I never mean to offend anyone. That is not in my nature. Far from it. But it is certainly true that I have a dark, perhaps even warped (to a point!) sense of humor. You see, I had the great fortune of growing up in Tuscany…and Tuscans have a ferocious sense of humor. I suppose that is why I am never offended by jokes (unless they are cruel, e.g. towards animals). If they are dumb or mysoginist, or dumb AND mysoginist, I simply ignore them.
    Hmmm, perhaps the fact that I am a blonde but enjoy some of the more amusing “dumb blonde” jokes (such as the following one) will illustrate my point a bit better:

    A dumb blonde was really tired of being made fun of, so she decided to have her hair dyed so that she would look like a brunette. One day she decided to take a drive in the country. After she had been driving for a while, she saw a farmer and a flock of sheep and thought, “Oh! Those sheep are so adorable!”

    She got out, walked over to the farmer and said, “If I can guess how many sheep you have, can I take one home?”
    The farmer, being a bit of a gambler himself, said she could have a try. The blonde/now brunette looked at the flock and guessed, “157.” The farmer was amazed – she was right! So the “brunette” picked one out and got back into her car.

    Before she left, the farmer walked up to her and said: “If I can guess the real color of your hair, can I have my dog back?”
