trip to the vet (funny)

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she
lay her beloved pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope
and listened to the bird's chest.

After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, "I'm
so sorry, your pet has passed away."

The distressed owner wailed, "Are you sure?"

Yes, I'm sure. The duck is dead," he replied.

"How can you be so sure," she protested. "I mean, you haven't done
any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He
returned a few moments later with a black Labrador Retriever.

As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his
hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed
the duck from top to bottom. He then looked at the vet with sad eyes
and shook his head.

The vet patted the dog and took it out and returned a few moments
later with a beautiful cat. The cat jumped up on the table and also
sniffed the bird from its peak to its tail and back again. The cat
sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly, jumped down
and strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said,
this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."

Then the vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and
produced a bill, which he handed to the woman.

The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" she cried.
"$150 just to tell me my duck is dead?!"

The vet shrugged. "I'm sorry. If you'd taken my word for it, the
bill would have been $20. But what with the Lab Report and the Cat
Scan, it all adds up."
