"The patient says, 'Doctor, it hurts when I do this.' So the doctor says, 'Then don't do that!'"

~ Henny Youngman

They say that "laughter is the best medicine" and that "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" ... but in between all that laughing and fresh fruit, give the doctor in your life a handshake, hug, or shoutout today for Doctor's Day. Thanks, Doc!

The Retiring Doctor

For clever doctor humour from physicians who do their best to support the old adage, "Laughter is the best medicine," click Norman Rockwell's charming 1929 painting, "Doctor and Doll."
