A Complicated Surgery for a Politician

  1. A politician awoke in a hospital bed after a complicated operation, and found that the curtains were drawn around him.

    "Why are the curtains closed," he said. "Is it night?"

    A nurse replied, "No, it is just that there is a fire across the street, and we didn't want you waking up and thinking that the operation was unsuccessful."

    They don't want him to think he died and went to hell.

    I'm embarrassed.....by the title of this thread, I kinda assumed that the politician was having something extracted from his lower colon. Like, um, his head.
