This middle-aged guy wakes up one morning and notices that his eyes are bulging and his ears are protruding. He becomes very concerned. He goes to his doctor and asks doc what is wrong with him. The doctor told him that he has a rare disease that will require him to take this medication for several months to clear up the disease, however the medication will make his hair fall out permanently.
Several months later the guy’s eyes are still bulging and his ears are still protruding, more so now that his hair is gone. This time he goes to a different doctor who informs him that he has a liver problems; that they will have to remove part of his liver. The guy has the surgery, only to find out, months later, his eyes are still bulging and his ears are still protruding.
Determined to find out what is wrong with him he goes to another doctor who tells him that the nerves in his hands are pinching the nerve endings in his ears and his eyes and the only way to resolve the problem is to have his hands amputated. Sadly, the guy lets his hands be amputated.
Months later, the man still has the problem. He goes to another specialist who informs him that the cause is a rare blood disease and that the man only has a few months to live!
The guy is hysterical at this point and resolves that if he only has months to live he is going to live it up. He goes out to buy a brand new sports car, new furniture and a new wardrobe. However, when he went to order some custom shirts, the tailor told him he took a seventeen-inch neck.
“No, I’ve always taken a fifteen-inch neck.”
“But sir, you have a seventeen-inch neck.”
“Listen — I’m forty-five years old, and for the past thirty years, I’ve taken a fifteen-inch neck.”
“Okay, I’ll do it. But do you know what happens when the neck is too small?”
“It makes your eyes bulge out and your ears protrude.” the tailor replies.
