A man sought medical aid because he had 'popped eyes' and some ringing in his ears.

A doctor looked him over and suggested removal of his tonsils. Well, the operation resulted in no improvement, so the patient consulted another doctor, who suggested removal of his teeth. The teeth were extracted, but still, the man's eyes were popped and the ringing in his ears continued.

A third doctor told him bluntly, "I'd say you've got only six months to live."

In that event, the doomed man decided he'd treat himself right, while he still could. He bought a flashy car, hired a chauffeur, and had the best tailor in town make him 30 suits. Then he decided that even his shirts would be made-to-order.

"Okay," sai the shirt maker, "let's get your measurements. Hmmm.... 34 sleeve, 16 collar...."

"Ah, that's 'fifteen collar', " the man corrected him.

"Nope! Sixteen collar," the shirt maker repeated, measuring once again.

"But I've *always* worn a 15 collar," said the man.

"Look," the shirt maker says,

"I'm warning you... You keep wearing a 15 collar and your eyes will pop and you'll have ringing in your ears!"
