He treated one woman for yellow jaundice for three years … Before he realized she was Chinese.

While he was talking to me, his nurse came in and said, “Doctor, there is a man here who thinks he’s invisible.”
The doctor said, “Tell him I can’t see him.”
Another time, a man came running in the office and yelled, “Doctor, doctor! – my son just swallowed a roll of film!”
The doctor calmly replied, “Well let’s just wait and see what develops.”
One patient came in and said, “Doctor, I have a serious memory problem” The doctor asked, “When did it start?”

I remember one time I told my doctor I had a ringing in my ears. His advice: “Don’t answer it.”
My doctor sure has his share of nut cases. One said to him, “Doctor, I think I’m a bell.” The doctor gave him some pills and said, “Here, take these – If they don’t work, give me a ring.”
Another guy told the doctor that he thought he was a deck of cards The doctor simply said, ” Go sit over there. I’ll deal with you later.”
When I told my doctor I broke my leg in two places, He told me to stop going to those places.

Parliament has voted to withdraw Switzerland’s dormant application to join the European Union.
The Senate voted on Wednesday to approve a motion from the House of Representatives that essentially calls the old application meaningless. It now falls to the cabinet to communicate this to the EU.
Foreign Minister Didier Burkhalter said the cabinet would convey the message that Switzerland’s application for EU membership is invalid and should be withdrawn. At the same time, they’ll have to reiterate Switzerland’s determination to modernise its bilateral relationship.
Burkhalter had previously stated that application was invalid.
