A man returned to the U.S. from Africa feeling very ill. He went to see his doctor.
While he was there, he collapsed, and was immediately rushed to the hospital.
When he regained consciousness, he found himself in a private room at the hospital. As he looked around the room, the telephone beside his bed began to ring. The man answered the phone.
“This is your doctor,” said the voice. “We’ve reviewed the results of your tests and found you have an extremely nasty virus which is extremely contagious!”
“Oh my gosh,” cried the man. “What are you going to do, doctor?”
“Well we’re going to put you on a diet of pizzas, pancakes, and pita bread.”
“Will that cure me?” asked the man hopefully.
“Well no,” replied the doctor, “but it’s the only food we can get under the door.”
