A husband and wife get in a car accident. The husband is okay, save for some scrapes and bruises, but the wife falls into a coma. For weeks the husband sits by her side in the hospital. One night, he starts getting sexual urges. So he very carefully runs his hand slowly up her thigh, but pulls back when he notices the beeping heart monitor pick up pace.
The next day he takes the doctor aside and tells him. "Interesting," the doctor says, "She's responding. Maybe try more tonight? Maybe a bit of oral sex?" The husband thinks it's a little wrong, but agrees to try it. That night, a Code Blue rings out in the halls. Nurses rush in to revive the flatlining wife. The husband stands outside, stunned, when the doctor pulls him aside and asks, "What happened? Did you try the oral sex?" "Yes," says the husband, blankly. "Well, what happened?" the doctor asks. The husband answers, "Well, she just started choking."
