Wash Possible

My mother told me this story about a brusque doctor from her youth in the 1920’s:

A woman came to see the doctor and he told her she smelled bad and needed to wash. She earnestly told him that she did wash. She washed as far up as possible and she washed as far down as possible. The doctor pointed his finger at her and said “That’s it! Go home and wash Possible!” I LOVE this story.

    Two Indian doctors were standing beside a nursing sister’s station in a British hospital. One doctor said to the other, ‘ I don’t know whether it’s spelt WHOMB or WHOOMB.’ The sister stood up and said, ‘I couldn’t help overhearing you doctor, but it’s spelt WOMB.’
    ‘Young woman,’ said the doctor, ‘I don’t think you’ve ever seen a water buffalo, let alone heard it pass wind under water.’
