A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley
motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.
The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come and take
a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the Garage, 'Hey Doc,
want to take a look at this?'
The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was
working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on
a rag and asked, 'So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the
valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish,
it works just like new. So how come I make $39,675 a year and you get the
really big bucks ($1,695,759) when you and I are doing basically the same
The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to the
mechanic...  'Try doing it with the engine running'

funny... loved this.... I'm amazed at all the doctors can do today.. My SIL had a piece of her colon removed (cancer) and sewed back through Lapescopy (sp?) surgery... just some tiny holes to heal up...
