Stop Eating Fried Potatoes
Stop Eating Fried Potatoes
Mrs Jenkins went to her doctor one day, because her heart was giving her trouble.
The doctor listened to her heart carefully and did a few other things. Then he said, "Well, Mrs Jenkins, stop smoking, and then you'll soon be quite all right again. "
"But doctor," answered Mrs Jenkins quickly, "I've never smoked. I don't like smoking. "
"Oh, well," said the doctor, "then don't drink any more alcohol. "
"But I don't drink alcohol," answered Mrs Jenkins at once.
"Stop drinking tea and coffee then," the doctor said to her.
"I only drink water," answered Mrs Jenkins. "I don't like tea or coffee. "
The doctor thought for a few seconds and then said,
"Well,. . . er. . . do you like fried potatoes?"
"Yes, I like them very much," answered Mrs Jenkins.
"All right, then stop eating those," said the doctor as he got up to say goodbye to Mrs Jenkins.
