Have a laugh

McIvor Times - - RABBIT STEW -

Ever since I was a child, I’d had this fear that some­one or some­thing was hid­ing un­der my bed at night. Even­tu­ally, I went to see a psy­chi­a­trist and told him about my fears and that I thought I was go­ing crazy. “Just put your­self in my hands for one year,” ad­vised the psy­chi­a­trist. “Come and talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of your ir­ra­tional fears.” I asked him how much it would cost and when he told me it’d be eighty dol­lars per visit I told him I’d think about it and get back to him. Six months later while walk­ing down the street I came across the psy­chi­a­trist out walk­ing his dog. “Why didn’t you come to see me about those fears you were hav­ing?” he asked. “Well,” I be­gan. “Eighty bucks a visit three times a week for a whole year is an aw­ful lot of money. Es­pe­cially when a bar­tender man­aged to cure me for just $10!” “Is that so?” the psy­chi­a­trist scoffed. “And how, may I ask, did a bar­tender cure you?” I looked him straight in the eyes and said: “He told me to cut the legs off the bed, ain’t no­body un­der there now!”
