A girl walked up to the information desk at Palomr Hospital and
asked to see the "upturn"
"I think you mean the 'intern,' don't you?" asked the nurse on
"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."
"You must mean the maternity ward", said the nurse.
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."
