An Ethical Dilemma

A nice, calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy,
walked up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes, and said, “I’d like to buy some cyanide.”

The pharmacist asked, “Why in the world do you need cyanide?”
The lady replied, “I need it to poison my husband.”

The pharmacist’s eyes got big and he explained, “Lord have mercy! I can’t give you cyanide to kill your husband, that’s against the law? I’ll lose my license! They’ll throw both of us in jail! All kinds of bad things will happen. Absolutely not! You CANNOT have any cyanide!”

The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist’s wife.
The pharmacist looked at the picture and said, “You didn’t tell me you had a prescription.”

    Don’t you just love this format of joke. There’s the vision of the old lady at the counter apparently about to do an evil deed. The audience has a preconceived idea of the correctness of the situation. It’s only in the last action of the old lady that the tables are turned. This prompts the human reaction of the pharmacist.

    Nice one!

    Good choice for a pharmacist. She must have shown the “prescription” immediately so there’s no more questions asked, LOL!
