An extremely modest man was in the hospital for a series of tests, the
last of which had left his bodily systems extremely upset.
Upon making several false alarm trips to the bathroom, he decided the
latest episode was another and stayed put. He suddenly filled his bed
with diarrhea and was embarrassed beyond his ability to remain rational.
In a complete loss of composure he jumped out of bed, gathered up the
bed sheets, and threw them out the hospital window.
A drunk was walking by the hospital when the sheets landed on him. He
started yelling, cursing, and swinging his arms violently trying to get
the unknown things off, and ended up with the soiled sheets in a tangled
pile at his feet.
As the drunk stood there, unsteady on his feet, staring down at the
sheets, a hospital security guard, barely containing his laughter,
and who had watched the whole incident, walked up and asked, "What the
heck is going on here?"
The drunk, still staring down replied: "I think I just beat the
of a ghost."
