A man takes his hamster to the vet, and after a short look at the
creature the vet pronounces it dead. Not happy with the vet’s
diagnosis the man asks for a second opinion. The vet gives a whistle
and in strolls a Labrador dog. The dog nudges the hamster around with
its nose and sniffs it a couple of times before shaking his head.
“There” says the vet,” Your hamster is dead”. Still not happy the man
asks for a third opinion. The vet opens the back door and in bounds a
cat. The cat jumps onto the table and looks the hamster up and down
for a few minutes before looking up and shaking it’s head. “It’s
definitely dead sir”, says the vet. Convinced, the man enquires how
much he owes. “That will be £1000, please”. “A £1000 just to tell me
my hamster is dead” fumes the man. “Well”, says the vet, “There’s my
diagnosis, the lab report and the cat scan”.
