He is severely hunched over and looks embarrassed.
After he is given his room, the nurse asks him what happened and he refuses to tell her.
Next a physician’s assistant comes in and asks what happened. The man again refuses to say what happened.
Finally, the doctor comes in and takes out the man’s chart. The doctor says, “You have two slipped discs and a sprained neck, what the hell happened?”
After the man initially doesn’t want to answer he finally says, “I got stuck and fell over trying to see if I could reach it with my mouth.”
The doctor smiles and says, “So, other than your pride, what hurts the most?”
The man pauses and says “Being so close . . . and never knowing what could have been.”
