Repost due the the original's deletion:

A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph 's Hospital. She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?"

The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, dear. What's the name and room number of the patient?"

The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, "Norma Findlay, Room 302."

The operator replied, "Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse's station for that room."

After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, "I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal, and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow."

The grandmother said,"Thank you. That's wonderful. I was so worried. God bless you for the good news."

The operator replied,"You're more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?"

The grandmother said,"No, I'm Norma Findlay in Room 302. No one tells me excreta."
In my original post the last word was a four letter word starting with S, and in place of the i it had an !, yet some church lady felt indignant about it to report the post, and it was duly deleted by whoever wields that "power". Now I've seen this word spelled out without any substitute characters a good number of times on these boards that were allowed to stand. Of course those posts were not by The Medieval Beast of Fooldom.

I could have posted the joke as above, but it would have lost what gave it its edgy charm. Yes, charm: granny talking dirty.

My email notification of "Deleted message from Motley Fool boards" contained the usual "we have community standards" admonition. Whoever composed that phrase had obviously never been to that cesspool called Political Asylum, where nine out of ten posts are more insulting than **i*
