    The Gynecologist who became a mechanic - Enjoy ladies

    A gynecologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance and HMO
    paperwork, and was burned out. Hoping to try another career where
    skillful hands would be beneficial, he decided to become a mechanic.

    He went to the local technical college, signed up for evening classes,
    attended diligently, and learned all he could. When the time of the
    practical exam approached, the gynecologist prepared carefully for
    weeks, and completed the exam with tremendous skill. When the results
    came back, he was surprised to find that he had obtained a score of
    150%.

    Fearing an error, he called the Instructor, saying, "I don't want to
    appear ungrateful for such an outstanding result, but I wonder if there
    is an error in the grade?"

    "The instructor said, "During the exam, you took the engine apart
    perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine
    back together again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark."
    After a pause, the instructor added, "I gave you an extra 50% because
    you did it all through the muffler, which I've never seen done in my
    entire career".

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
