Easy Joke Four

"What do you think, Doc?"
This joke uses an expression ("a second opinion") often used when we have a serious health problem. If we are not sure of our doctor's advice, we can get "a second opinion" from another doctor. This is very common when the decision is very important but in this joke, the decision is not so important so the doctor's final answer is quite a surprise. Enjoy!
The doctor said to his (1) patient: 'Your health is getting (2) worse because you are so (3) overweight. You are really very fat and need to lose (4) at least 20 kilograms.'

The patient replied to the doctor: 'I want to get (5) a second opinion.'

'Okay', the doctor (6) spoke again, 'you are very (7) ugly too!'

(1) a sick person who goes to see a doctor
(2) "more bad" (we say "good - better - best" and "bad - worse - worst)
(3) too heavy or too fat
(4) the lowest number, maybe he needs to lose MORE than 20 kilos!
(5) he wants to go see another doctor
(6) past of "speak"
(7) not good looking
The doctor is using the the first meaning of "opinion", which is just his personal idea, not the opinion of a professional doctor! (^_*)
