Daily Soviet joke

One day in the old Soviet Union, a man went to the medical clinic for some socialist health care. "What can I do for you, comrade?", the receptionist asks. "I want to see ear-and-eye doctor", the man replied. "What do you mean, ear-and-eye doctor? You want ear doctor, or eye doctor?" "I want to see ear-and-eye doctor!" "We don't have any ear-and-eye doctor. We have the ear doctor, or the eye doctor! Why do you want to see an "ear-and-eye doctor"? The man paused, and said very slowly with great emphasis: "I want to see ear-and-eye doctor, because I am always HEARING ONE THING AND SEEING SOMETHING ELSE! Please send me to ear-and-eye doctor!"

Now also applicable in media-and-democrat-controlled USA.
