Medicine is no laughing matter. Doctors and nurses are having to be on their feet and walking very long shifts as they treat sick people day in and day out. They often have to deal with demanding patients that often try not to be difficult but are scared. And yet there are those patients that are purposely difficult and that just makes their job even harder. They are faced with bodily fluids day after day and become desensitized to them whereas anyone who is not in the medical or cleaning field, or similar would not be able to handle it. 

And at some point, they have had to deliver the worst news to the families of those who they could not save. Therefore, being in the medical field involves having to face a lot of physical, mental, and emotional stress. And what doctors, nurses, medical technicians, and anyone else involved in medicine need to do is find anything that they can laugh at. Laughter is the best medicine for anyone in the medical field or really for anyone that is dealing with so much stress as it is. That is why there are 50 medical puns that they can use as the best medicine to help keep their stress levels down. Laughter does help, right?
