The Best Choice

Five surgeons are discussing who makes the best patients for them to operate on:

The first surgeon says: “Accountants are the best to operate on because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.”

The second responds: “Try electricians! Everything inside them is color coded.”

The third surgeon says: “No, librarians are the best. Everything inside them is in alphabetical order.”

The fourth surgeon intercedes. “I like construction workers… they always understand when you have a few parts left over at the end and when it takes longer than you expect.”

To which the fifth surgeon says: “You’re all wrong. Politicians are the easiest. There’s no guts, no heart, no spine and their head and butt are interchangeable.
