Another blow for the medical profession Doctors vs. Guns Doctors: The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000 Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000 Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171 Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health Human Services. Guns: The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000 The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500 The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188. Statistics courtesy of F.B.I. Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do." FACT: Not everyone has a gun, but almost everyone has at least one doctor. Please alert your friends to this alarming threat immediatly. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand! Note: Out of concern for the public at large, the statistics on lawyers have been withheld for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.

You know it came as a joke in my email...but the numbers are interesting and I think if they weren't juxtaposed, we would not have batted an eye.

Missing Accountant A businessman tells his friend that his company is looking for a new accountant. His friend asks, "Didn't your company hire a new accountant a few weeks ago?" The businessman replies, "That's the accountant we're looking for." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A Heart A fellow is walking into a hospital and sees two doctors down on their hands and knees in one of the flower beds. He goes over and says, "Can I help? Have you lost something?" "No," says one of the doctors. "We're about to do a heart transplant on an accountant and we're looking for a suitable stone." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Three Accountants Three accountants go to the men's room to relieve themselves. The first one finishes and walks over to the basin to wash his hands. He then proceeds to dry them carefully, using paper towel after paper towel until every spot of water is gone. He turns to the other two accountants and says, "CPAs are trained to be extremely thorough." The second one goes over to the basin, washes his hands and then dries them with one paper towel, using every corner of it until every spot of water is gone. He says, "Chartered Accountants are trained to be extremely thorough but also extremely efficient." The third accountant walks straight to the door. "Management Accountants learn never to piss on themselves."
