Bone Stuck in Wealthy Man’s Throat

A wealthy old man of Krakow, who was a great lover of fish, was eating his favorite dish one Friday night and was almost choked by a bone in his throat. He could neither dislodge nor swallow it. His life was in grave danger. Dr. Kirschenbaum was called to save him. The doctor hurriedly arrived and found the wealthy man half dead. With the aid of a small pliers he quickly removed the bone. The wealthy man was overwhelmed with joy. “Here Doctor,” he said, “with the help of God you saved my life. How can I ever repay you?” Upon which the doctor very calmly replied: “Just give me half of what you would have given when the bone was stuck in your throat.” (Encyclopedia of Illustrations #8161).
