A male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose, still heavily sedated from a difficult four hour surgical procedure.

A pretty nurse appears to give him a partial sponge bath. "Nurse," the man mumbles, "Are my testicles black?"

Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body."

He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, are my testicles black?"

Concerned that the man might elevate his blood pressure from concern about his testicles, the nurse overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers. She raises his patient gown, lifts his manhood and examines the area closely. "They look fine," she assures him.

The man pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her and says very slowly, "Thank you very much. That was wonderful. But please, tell me: are my test results back?"
