How Much Will A Brain Cost?

In the hospital where a family member lay gravely ill, the relatives gathered
in the waiting room. Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber.
"I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news," he said as he surveyed the worried faces.
"The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain
transplant. It's an experimental procedure, very risky, but it is the
only hope. Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to pay
for the Brain."
The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a time, someone
asked, "How much will a brain cost?"  The doctor quickly responded, "$5,000 for a Democrat's brain; $200 for a
Republican's brain."
The moment turned awkward. Some of the Democrats actually had to try not to smile,
avoiding eye contact with the Republicans. A man unable to control his
curiosity, finally blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, "Why
is the Democrat's brain so much more than a Republican's brain?"
The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire group,
"It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to price the Republicans'
brains a lot lower because they're used."
Send This To A Republican Who Needs A Laugh, And To Any Democrat Whom You
Think Can Handle A Joke!
"Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take
care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian."
