Hear us Roar

  1. hear us roar!!!!

    In the hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room,

    where their family member lay gravely ill. Finally, the doctor

    came in looking tired and somber. "I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news,"

    he said as he surveyed the worried faces. "The only hope left for your

    loved one at this time is a brain transplant. It's an experimental

    procedure, very risky but it is the only hope." "Insurance will cover

    the procedure, but you will have to pay for the brain yourselves."

    The family members sat, silent as they absorbed the news.

    After a great length of time, someone asked, "Well, how

    much does a brain cost?" The doctor quickly responded, "$5,000

    for a male brain, and $200 for a female brain." The moment

    turned awkward. Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact

    with the women, but some actually smirked.

    A man, unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the

    question everyone wanted to ask, "Why is the male brain so much more?" The doctor smiled at

    the childish innocence and explained to the entire group, "It's just

    standard pricing procedure. We have to mark down the price of the female brains, because they've

    actually been used."
