Medical Marvels

Three Texas surgeons were playing golf together and discussing surgeriesthey had performed.One of them said, "I'm the best surgeon in Texas. A concert pianist lost 7 fingers in an accident, I reattached them, and 8 months later he performed a private concert for the Queen of England."One of the others said. "That's nothing. A young man lost both arms and legsin an accident, I reattached them, and 2 years later he won a gold medal in field events in the Olympics."The third surgeon said, "You guys are amateurs. Several years ago a cowboy who was high on cocaine and alcohol rode a horse head-on into a train traveling 80 miles an hour. All I had left to work with was the horse's ass and a cowboy hat. Now he's president of the United States."

The third surgeon should have been sued for malpractice. Or, at the very least, referred the patient to the psych unit and thrown the key away!
