Jamaican Joke: The Jamaican Doctor

Written by Staff Writer

A newly qualified Jamaican Doctor can’t find a job so he opens a clinic and puts a sign outside “GET TREATMENT FOR $20 – IF NOT CURED GET BACK $100”.  A lawyer thinks this is a great opportunity to earn $100 and goes to the clinic…

Lawyer : “I have lost my sense of taste.”

Dr :”Nurse, bring medicine from Box No. 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth”

Lawyer : “Ugh.. this is kerosene!”

Dr : “Congrats, your sense of taste is restored. Give me $20”

The annoyed lawyer goes back after a few days to recover his money…

Lawyer : “I have lost my memory. I cannot remember anything.”

Dr : “Nurse, bring medicine from Box No. 22 and put 3 drops in this man’s mouth.”

Lawyer (annoyed): “This is kerosene. You gave this to me last time for restoring my taste”

Dr :”Congrats. You got your memory back. Pay me $20.”

The fuming lawyer pays him, and then comes back a week later determined to get back $100.

Lawyer : “My eyesight has become very weak.”

Dr : Well, I don’t have any medicine for that, so take this $100.”

Lawyer (staring at the note): “But this is $20, not $100!”

Dr : “Congrats, your eyesight is restored. Pay me $20.”

Moral of this : You can’t beat a Jamaican ‘Samfie’ when it comes to money!
