Doctor on Duty

August 4, 2019 | by Aish.com

Doctor Hershy Samuels was known for being an excellent pathologist and having a razor sharp wit. He was often called upon to testify in court. On one occasion in particular, Dr. Samuels was in fine form:

LAWYER: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
DR. SAMUELS: No.
LAWYER: Did you check for blood pressure?
DR. SAMUELS: No.
LAWYER: Did you check for breathing?
DR. SAMUELS: No.
LAWYER: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
DR. SAMUELS: No.
LAWYER: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
DR. SAMUELS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
LAWYER: But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
DR. SAMUELS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law somewhere.
