Bailey was in a terrible car accident, which mangled his “manhood” and tore it from his body.
His doctor assured him that modern medicine could give him back his manhood, but that he would have to go privately to have this done – such an operation was not available under the National Health. Although Bailey did not have any private medical cover, he told the doctor that it was not going to be a problem – it was so important, he would pay for it out of his savings.
“So how much will it cost?” asked Bailey.
“£4,500 for a small one, £7,500 for medium and £12,000 for large.”
Bailey said, “Then I’ll have the large one, please.”
But the doctor urged him to talk it over with his wife before making such an important decision and left the room to allow Bailey to call his wife on his mobile.
Bailey spent 10 minutes discussing his options with Martha and when the doctor came back into the room, he found Bailey looking utterly dejected.
“Well, what have the two of you decided?” asked the doctor.
Bailey answered, “Martha said she’d rather have a new kitchen.”
