In the Jocular Vein

Why not?

As a third-year medical student, I was assigned to do all the histories and physicals on newly admitted patients. While doing the review of systems on one man, I asked him, "Does it burn when you pass your urine?"

He hesitated, looked at me quizzically, and said, "I don't know; I never tried to light it."
