While it's funny, could it be reality?

LAB TEST MISHAP

The phone rings and the lady of the house answers.

"Hello?"

"Mrs. Sanders, please."

"Speaking."

"Mrs. Sanders, this is Dr. Jones at St. Agnes Laboratory.

"When your husband's doctor sent his biopsy to the lab last week, a biopsy from another Mr. Sanders arrived as well. We are now uncertain which one belongs to your husband. Frankly, either way the results are not too good."

"What do you mean?" Mrs. Sanders asks nervously.

"Well, one of the specimens tested positive for Alzheimer's and the other one tested positive for HIV. We can't tell which is which."

"That's dreadful! Can you do the test again?" questioned Mrs. Sanders.

"Normally we could have, but the new health care system will only pay for these expensive tests just one time."

''Well, what am I supposed to do now? "

"The folks at Obama health care recommend that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town. If he finds his way home, don't sleep with him."

Would you mind producing the section of code that covers what is discussed in the OP? It sounds like fantasy to me.

First of all, there is no "Obama health care." The new law serves to expand the private insurance industry. Secondly, I have a hard time believing that any law would not make exceptions for mishaps such as the one portrayed in the OP.

Nice fear-mongering, though. There are many naive people who are scared of their own shadows. You go get 'em, tiger!

Don't take life so seriously, you're not going to get out of it alive. Reminds me of Foghorn Leghorn's statement,

"Did ya see that hawk after those hens? He scared 'em! That Rhode Island Red turned white, then blue. Rhode Island, red white and blue! That's a joke, son, a flag-waver! You're built too low. The fast ones go over your head. Ya got a hole in your glove. I keep pitchin' 'em and you keep missin' 'em! Ya gotta keep your eye on the ball! Eye. Ball. Eyeball! I almost had a gag, son--a joke, that is!"

Funny and customizable too.
