Your Duck is Dead
Lady walks into veterinary with a very limp duck. Veterinarian listened with a stethoscope for heartbeat.
"I'm sorry ma'am , your duck is dead" The woman in disbelief says,"Are you absolutely sure...you didn't do any tests. Couldn't it just be in a coma or something?" The vet left the room and came back in with a black Labrador retriever who put his paws up on the table and sniffed the duck and then, with sad eyes, turned to the woman and shook his head. The vet left the room and brought a cat in who proceeded to gently sniff the duck from head to toe and back. The cat sat back on its haunches and meowed very softly and left the room. The veterinarian said, "Your duck is absolutely dead" and proceeded to give her a bill for 150.00. The lady was aghast .."You are charging me $150.00 just to tell me my duck is dead?!"
"Well," the vet said, "if you would have taken my word for it it would have only been 20.00...
The lab report and cat scan was the expensive part."
