Have you ever seen anyone with a Second Appendix???

A man phoned his doctor very late at night saying his wife appeared to have Appendicitis.

“That’s impossible,” the physician replied, peeved at being woken up after midnight. “She had an appendectomy last year. Don’t be stupid. Only a moron like you would wake me up for something this idiotic. Have you ever seen anybody with a second appendix?”

“No, you are the moron!” the husband replied. “Haven’t you ever seen anybody with a second wife?”
