What did the constipated racing driver say to the doctor/nurse


meant to post on

OOPS! and never mind

What did the constipated racing driver say to the doctor/nurse, when asked about his latest movements?

I came last in my race, but still did more passing then than in the last three days!

“Life is far too important (a subject) to be taken too seriously”


“The nurse” is used to hearing such “silliness” from me (often) and doesn’t think it’s at all funny (“you haven’t fully grown up, c”#)… so that’s why I’m posting


+ “Nurses hear stuff like that… all the time from men (who think they’re so funny!)”

Where’s your sense of humour, m (the Zimbabwean nurse I told at the local hospital rolled around laughing crazily and made a very funny retort)?

Anyway, enjoy in these difficult and uncertain days

This is a quick post to let you know that I’ll have a new story published by the fine folks at The Arcanist on April 24, 2020. I’ll be sure to add a link once it’s live. In the meantime, you can check out this link to find out more.
