    In the hospital the relatives gathered in the
    waiting room, where their family member lay
    gravely ill.

    Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber.

    "I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news," he said
    as he surveyed 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 silent as they absorbed
    the news. After a great length of time, someone
    asked, "Well, how much does a brain cost?"

    The doctor quickly responded, "£50,000 for
    a female brain, and £200 for a male brain."

    The moment turned awkward. Women in the
    room tried not to smile, avoiding eye
    contact with the men, but some
    actually smirked. A woman unable to control
    her curiosity, blurted out the question
    everyone wanted to ask,

    "Why is the female brain so much more?"

    The doctor smiled at the childish innocence
    and explained to the entire group,

    "It's just standard pricing procedure.
    We have to mark down the price of the
    male brains, because they've actually been used."

    "Nurse?"
    "Yes, Mr Smith?"
    "Give us a kiss."
    "Don't be silly Mr Smith. You know we're not allowed to do that."
    "Go on, nurse."
    "No. Now go to sleep."
    "Please, nurse. Just one."
    "I'm not allowed to."
    "Only a little one."
    "I've told you no."
    "Please."
    "Stop it, Mr Smith."
    "Just one little kiss."
    "I've told you. Nurses aren't allowed to kiss patients."
    "Pleeease."
    "I shouldn't even be in bed with you."
