Black Balled

A male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose, still heavily sedated from a difficult surgery. A young student nurse appears to give him a partial sponge bath. "Nurse?" he mumbles from behind the oxygen mask, "Are my testicles black?" Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "Uh, um, I don't know, Sir... I'm only here to wash your upper body."

He struggles a bit to ask again, "Nurse, ARE MY TESTICLES BLACK?" Concerned that he may elevate his vitals from worry about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his penis in one hand and his testicles in the other and examines them front, back, and both sides. After taking a long close look she says "There's nothing wrong with them, sir!"

The man pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her warmly and says very slowly, "Thank you very much. That was wonderful, but, listen closely... A r e - m y - t e s t - r e s u l t s - b a c k?"
