Carving

Surgeons invited to dinner parties are often asked to carve
the meat — or worse yet, to watch the host carve while
commenting on the surgeon’s occupation.

At one party, a surgeon friend was watching the carving
while Harry, his host, kept up a running commentary: “How am
I doing, doc? How do you like that technique? I’d make a
pretty good surgeon, don’t you think?”

When the host finished and the slices of meat lay neatly on
the serving platter, the surgeon spoke up: “Anybody can take
them apart, Harry. Now let’s see you put them back together
again.”
