Sign Humor


Cyburbian Emeritus
Two doctors opened an office in a small town and put up a sign reading, "Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones, Psychiatry and Proctology." The Plan Commission was not too happy with that sign, so the doctors changed it to "Hysteria's and Posteriors."

This was not acceptable either, so in an effort to satisfy the
Plan Commission they changed the sign to "Schizoids and Hemorrhoids." No go.

Next they tried "Catatonics and High Colonics.." Thumbs down again.

Then came "Manic-depressives and Anal Retentives." Still not good.

How about "Minds and Behinds"? Unacceptable again.

So they tried "Lost Souls and A** Holes." Still no go. Nor did "Analysis and Anal Cysts," "Nuts and Butts," "Freaks and Cheeks," or "Loons and Moons" work either.

Almost at their wit's end, the doctors finally came up with a business slogan they thought might be acceptable to the council: "Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones, "Odds and Ends." Approved!
