Brain Power

In the hospital the friends gathered in the waiting room, where their friend lay gravely ill. Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber.

"I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news," he said as he surveyed the worried faces. "The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant. It's an experimental procedure, semi-risky and you will have to pay for the brain yourselves."

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a great length of time, someone asked, "Well, how much does a brain cost?"

The doctor quickly responded, "$5,000 for a human brain, and $200 for a martian brain."

The moment turned awkward. Humans in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the martians, but some actually smirked. A human, unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, "Why is the human brain so much more?"

The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and so to the entire group said, "It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to mark down the price of the martian brains, because they've actually been used."
