Billie’s Joke of the Week, February 11

Ever since he was a child, Paul always had a fear of someone being under his bed at night.  So he finally went to a shrink and told him:

“I’ve got problems.  Every time I go to bed I think there’s somebody under it.  I’m scared.  I think I’m going crazy.”

“Just put yourself in my hands for one year”, said the shrink.  “Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.”

“How much do you charge?”
“Eighty dollars a visit” replied the doctor.

“I’ll sleep on it”, Paul said.

Six months later the doctor met Paul on the street.  “Why didn’t you come to see me about those fears you were having?” he asked.

“Well, eighty bucks a visit, three times a week for a year, is $12,480.  A bartender cured me for $10.  I was so happy to have saved all that money, I went and bought me a new pickup truck.”
“Is that so?”  With a bit of an attitude the shrink said, “And how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?”

“He told me to cut the legs off the bed,  Ain’t nobody under there now!”
