Mikey hurries into the emergency room late one night with the tip of his index finger shot off. "How did this happen?" the emergency room doctor asked him. "Well, I was trying to commit suicide," Mikey replied. "What?" sputtered the doctor? "You tried to commit suicide by shooting your finger off?" "No Doctor!" the Mikey said. "First I put the gun to my chest, and I thought: I just paid $50.00 for this shirt, I'm not shooting myself in the chest." "So then?" asked the doctor. "Then I put the gun in my mouth, and I thought: I just paid $500.00 to get my teeth straightened, I'm not shooting myself in the mouth." "So then?" "Then I put the gun to my ear, and I thought: This is going to make a loud noise. So I put my finger in the other ear before I pulled the trigger."
