Bert Christensen's Truth & Humour Collection

Evolution of Treatments
2000 B.C. - Here, eat this root. 1000 A.D. - That root is heathen. Here, say this prayer.

1850 A.D. - That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion.
1940 A.D. - That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill.
1985 A.D. - That pill is ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic.
2000 A.D. - That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root.
jackiesue's input..2008, don't take anything it's made in China and contaminated by lead and toxins.

Sounds like a visit to my doctor.

jan said...

I do love this. What is old is often new again.

Big Tex said...

So I guess you could say that we're getting back to our roots.


Thank you! I'll be appearing at the Schenectady Laugh Shack this Thursday night. Don't forget to tip your waitress!

Nit Wit said...

We also seem to be getting to the root of the problem.
I couldn't resist.
I'm not appearing anywhere except my nasty old job tomorrow night. Sigh...
Sorry Big Tex I know that's a sensitive subject for you right now. Maybe you'll be discovered and get on Letterman.

yellowdog granny said...

ain't that the dying truth.
An apple a day... oh wait, apples will kill now, all sorts of bad things in them - too much sugar, etc. etc.
you better eat a tomato... awwww damn, better not eat that tomato...

Big Tex said...

nitwit: A gig on Letterman's show would be nice. Of course, at this point, any paying job that doesn't involve sexual degradation would be nice. And for that matter, I'm flexible on the sexual degradation as long as the pay is good. ;-)

cuz: I'd be more than happy to take Russert's old job. But I'd settle for Olbermann getting it. He'd probably do much better with it than I would...
