Computer Diagnosis

One day Bill complained to his friend that his elbow really hurt. His friend
suggested that he go to a computer at the drug store that can diagnose anything
quicker and cheaper than a doctor.
”Simply put in a sample of your urine and the computer will diagnose your
problem and tell you what you can do about it. It only costs $10.” Bill figured
he had nothing to lose, so he filled a jar with a urine sample and went to the
drug store. Finding the computer, he poured in the sample and deposited the $10.
The computer started making some noise and various lights started flashing.
After a brief pause out popped a small slip of paper on which was printed: “You
have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water. Avoid heavy lifting. It will be
better in two weeks.”
Later that evening while thinking how amazing this new technology was and how
it would change medical science forever, he began to wonder if this machine
could be fooled. He mixed together some tap water, a stool sample from his dog
and urine samples from his wife and daughter. To top it off, he masturbated into
the concoction. He went back to the drug store, located the machine, poured in
the sample and deposited the $10. The computer again made the usual noise and
printed out the following message:
“Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener. Your dog has worms. Get him
vitamins. Your daughter is using cocaine. Put her in a rehabilitation clinic.
Your wife is pregnant with twin girls. They aren’t yours. Get a lawyer. And if
you don’t stop jerking off, your tennis elbow will never get better.”
