Can I get a second opinion?

English Joke of the Week

THE JOKE

Doctor: “You are very sick.”
Patient: “Can I get a second opinion?”
Doctor: “Yes, you are very ugly too…”

 
 
VOCABULARY
Second opinion = a diagnosis from another doctor to ensure that the first diagnosis was correct. Literally, it means two opinions.
Get in this question means (to) obtain.

 

Why is it funny?
Because the patient doesn’t believe that the doctor is correct in his diagnosis and asks the doctor for another diagnosis from a different doctor, to ensure the first one is correct. Instead, the doctor gives the patient another opinion about him – that he is very ugly.
