In the hospital the relatives gathered, where a family member lay gravely ill. as the doctor came in looking sombre.
As he surveyed the worried faces he said. he said I’m afraid 'the only hope for your loved one now is a brain transplant. It's an experimental procedure, very risky, but it is the only hope.
Insurance will cover the procedure, but I am afraid you will still have to pay for the BRAIN.' The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a time, someone asked, 'How much will a brain cost?'
Some of the men tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the women. Finally a man unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, 'Why is the male brain so much more than a female brain?'
The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained, 'It's standard pricing. We have to price the female brains a lot lower because they've been used.'
