Mrs. Smith’s elderly husband hasn’t been feeling well so she takes him to the doctor. After the examination, the doctor asks to speak to Mrs. Smith alone.
“Mrs. Smith, I’m sorry to tell you that your husband is near death.”
Aghast, Mrs. Smith says, “Doctor, is there anything I can do?”
“Well, there are a couple of things that may help. First you could cook him a delicious and nutritious dinner every night. Secondly, you could give him a nice back rub every night, and finally, each night, you could make love to him like you never have before.
“These steps may serve to prolong his life for a substantial period of time.”
Mrs. Smith then joins her husband and the poor, sickly man asks, “Well, what did he say?”
“I’m sorry honey. It looks like you’re going to die very soon.”
