Cartoon caption for Aug.15----

The doctor told me this operation was just horrendous 100 years ago.

Never again will I mention to my doctor that I have a broken heart.

Doc says after this procedure I can do any thing I want.

The new scrubs have been ordered.

I am terrified that these guys do not have enough light!!
