A girl walked up to the information desk in a hospital and
asked to see the "upturn".
"I think you mean the 'intern,' don't you?" asked the
nurse on duty.
"Yes," said the girl. "I want to have a 'contamination.'"
"You mean 'examination,'" the nurse corrected her.
"Well I want to go to the 'fraternity ward,' anyway."
"I'm sure you mean the maternity ward."
To which the girl replied: "Upturn, intern; contamination,
examination;fraternity, maternity....what's the difference?
All I know is I haven't demonstrated in two months and I
think I'm stagnant."
