In the old days, people didn't complain about how they felt. (2:08)

HOW ARE YOU FEELING.

HOW ARE YOU?

(LOUD CHEERS FROM AUDIENCE)

THAT'S GREAT!

THAT'S MARVELOUS!

BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT?

WE'RE NOT WELL IN IRELAND.

PEOPLE AREN'T WELL--

THEY'RE SICK.

YOU KNOW, THEY'RE SICKER THAN

WE'VE EVER BEEN BEFORE--

WE'RE MORE SICK, MORE OFTEN.

IS IT THE SAME HERE?

YOU KNOW, EVERYONE YOU MEET--

HOW ARE YOU?

OH, I'VE GOT AN AWFUL BUG.

I'VE HAD IT FOR ABOUT FOUR YEARS

NOW-- CAN'T SEEM TO SHRUG IT

OFF.

YOU KNOW, IN THE OLD DAYS,

PEOPLE JUST GOT ON WITH IT--

EVEN THE TERMINALLY ILL.

HOW'RE YOU?

I'M FINE!

WHAT ABOUT THE HORRENDOUS PAIN?

OH, IT HELPS PASS THE TIME!

(LAUGHTER)

YEAH.

AND OF COURSE, MEN GET MUCH

SICKER THAN WOMEN.

YOU NOTICE THIS?

THE SAME SYMPTOMS, MEN SUFFER

MORE.

AND THERE'S A REASON FOR THIS,

WHY MEN EXPERIENCE PAIN MORE

ACUTELY THAN WOMEN.

AND THAT'S BECAUSE THERE'S

ALWAYS A PART OF THE WOMAN'S

BRAIN THINKING ABOUT SHOES.

YEAH?

YEAH.

OF COURSE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

YOU KNOW THIS.

YOU SEE, WOMEN ARE CAPABLE OF

HAVING MORE THAN ONE THOUGHT

AT ANY ONE TIME.

MEN CAN'T!

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

I DON'T KNOW, I HAVE A RUNNY

NOSE.

WOMEN CAN BE THINKING ABOUT

THEIR RUNNY NOSE, AND THINKING

ABOUT WORK, AND WHAT THEY'RE

HAVING FOR DINNER TOMORROW,

AND RECALLING EVERY WORD OF A

CONVERSATION THEY JUST HAD WITH

A FRIEND, TO FIND OUT IF THERE'S

ANY OFFENSE CAUSED OR RECEIVED,

YOU KNOW?

AND THEY CAN BE PLOTTING THEIR

REVENGE-- ANY AMOUNT OF THINGS!

NOW, I'VE NO RESPECT FOR DOCTORS

ANYMORE.

I'VE LOST ALL MY RESPECT FOR THE

MEDICAL PROFESSION.

THEY DON'T KNOW ANYTHING!

YOU GO IN THERE, AND THEY SAY--

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS WRONG WITH

YOU?

I DON'T KNOW!

IT'S NOT MY JOB TO THINK!

IT'S YOUR JOB TO THINK!

I THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE A BUG.

OH, REALLY?

THANKS A MILLION!

WHAT BUG?

YOU KNOW?

AND THE MOST YOU CAN EXPECT

IS A PRESCRIPTION FOR SOME

ANTIBIOTICS.

NOW WHERE I COME FROM,

WHEN YOU GET A PRESCRIPTION FOR

ANTIBIOTICS, YOU DON'T SAY,

WELL, WILL THEY WORK?

WILL THERE BE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

NO, IT'S-- "WILL I BE ABLE TO

DRINK WITH THESE?"

(LAUGHTER AND CHEERING)
