Doctor, how many autopsies have you performed on dead people?
All of them.
Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
No, I didn’t.
Did you check for breathing?
No, I did not.
Did you check for blood pressure?
So then it’s possible the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
No, it isn’t.
And how can you be so sure?
Because his brain was in a jar.
Could the patient still have been alive, nonetheless?
It’s possible that he could have been alive. Practising law somewhere.
