After all of the HMO woes everyone seems to have and our own problems with my MIL's health I just had to pass this one on.............
Two doctors and an HMO manager died and lined up at the pearly gates for admission to heaven. St. Peter asked them to identify themselves.
One doctor stepped forward and said, "I was a pediatric spine surgeon and helped kids overcome their deformities."
St. Peter said, "You can enter."
The second doctor said, "I was a psychiatrist. I helped people rehabilitate themselves."
St. Peter also invited him in.
The third applicant stepped forward and said, "I was an HMO
manager. I helped people get cost-effective health care." St. Peter said, "You can come in too."
As the HMO manager walked by, St. Peter added, "You can only
stay three days. After that you can go to hell."
