The Miracle Doctor
Dr. Bernstein was a new doctor in town. He was a Harvard trained doctor in the big city with a great reputation but he decided to move to a small town instead. The townspeople were enamoured by their new fancy doctor and he soon got a reputation that he could cure anything and anybody. Everyone was amazed with what he could do - everyone except for Mr. Thompson, the town skeptic.
Grumpy old Mr. Thompson went to visit 'Miracle Doctor Bernstein' to prove that he wasn't anybody special. When it was time for his appointment he told Dr. Bernstein "Hey, doc, I've lost my sense of taste. I can't taste nothin', so what are ya goin' to do?"
Dr. Bernstein scratched his head and mumbled to himself a little, then told Mr. Thompson, "What you need is jar number 47."
So Dr. Bernstein brought the jar out, opened it, and told Mr. Thompson to taste it. He tasted it and immediately spit it out, "This is gross!" he yelled. "Looks like I just restored your sense of taste Mr. Thompson," said Dr. Bernstein. So Mr. Thompson went home.... very mad.
One month later, Mr. Thompson decides to go back to Dr. Bernstein and try once again to expose him as a fake, by complaining of a new problem. "Doc," he started, "I can't remember anything!" Thinking he had Dr. Bernstein stumped now, he waited as the doctor scratched his head, mumbled to himself a little, and told Mr. Thompson, "What you need is jar number 47, it's......"
But before Dr. Bernstein could finish his sentence, Mr. Thompson was cured and fled the room!
