    Mr. Smith goes to the doctor's office to collect his wife's test
    results. The lab tech say to him, I'm sorry, Sir, but there has been a
    bit of a mix-up and we have a problem. When we sent the samples from
    your wife to the lab, the samples from another Mrs. Smith were sent at
    the same time and we are now uncertain which one is your wife's.
    Frankly, it is either bad or terrible results!!" "What do you mean?"
    "Well, one Mrs. Smith has tested positive for Alzheimer's and the other
    Mrs. Smith has tested positive for AIDS. We can't tell which one is your
    wife." "That's terrible!! Can we do the test over?" "Normally, yes, But
    you have an HMO, and they won't pay for these expensive tests more than
    once in a year, so we can't repeat the test until next year." "Well,
    what am I supposed to do now?" "The HMO recommends that you drop your
    wife off in the middle of town. If she remembers the way home, don't
    sleep with her."
