A man sought medical aid because he had popped eyes and a ringing in his ears. A doctor looked him over andsuggested removal of his tonsils. The operation resulted in no improvement, so the patient consulted another doctor who suggested removal of his teeth. The teeth were pulled, but still, his eyes kept popping and his ears still rang.
A third doctor told him bluntly, "You have 6 months to live."

In that event, the doomed man decided he'd treat himself in the remaining time he had here on Earth. He bought a nice, new car, hired a chauffeur, and had the best tailor in town make him 30 new suits. Then he decided that even his shirts would be made-to-order.

"Okay," said the shirtmaker, "let's get your measurement. Hmm….34 sleeve, 16 collar…"
"Fifteen," the man interrupted.
"Sixteen collar," the shirtmaker repeated, measuring again.
"But I've always worn a 15 collar," said the man.
"Listen," the shirtmaker said, "I'm warning you. You keep on wearing a 15 collar, and your eyes will pop andyour ears will ring."
