Seems farmer Al Falfa's old dog Wrecks had taken rather a bad turn. So Al loaded up the dog in the pick up and took him downtown to Dr. Payne's veterinary clinic there on Second St. in Two Foot Falls. Well, Doc looked at ol' Wrecks and said "This doesn't look to good, Mr. Falfa, Ol' Wrecks is dead."
"Can't be." said Al. "Isn't there something you can do?"
"Well, I'll see." says Doc. Presently he goes out of the examining room and brings back this labrador retriever. The lab looks at Wrecks' comatose body, looks at Doc, then looks at Wrecks, then at Al. Finally Doc says "Yep, Ol' Wrecks is dead, all right. I'm sorry."
Al says "Wait just try once more. I really want a second opinion." So, Doc Payne takes the lab away, and comes back with this Siamese cat. He holds the cat over top of Ol' Wrecks and passes her from left to right, then from right to left. And the Doc says to Al, "No doubt about it now, Ol' Wrecks is dead. I'm sorry. That'll be $850.00."
"$850.00!" exclaims Al Falfa. "What do you think, money grows on trees?! How do you figure that?"
"Well, simple, $350.00 for the lab tests, and $500.00 for the cat scan."
