News, but not the serious kind
A loco motive for doing this?
Hey Doctor, it’s me! Earl! I’m calling from out here on the railway line where you sent me. Are you positive this will make me better?
You say the electrical energy from the rails will cure me, but how do I get it from the train into me?
Ever hear of a conductor, Earl?
Should I have an anesthetic?
Yeah, I’d suggest a local.
Should I lie on my stomach?
No, you should be on your caboose.
I thought I’d be alone out here, Doc, but it’s like Grand Central Station!
I’m sorry if it’s crowded. I believe Dr. Whiplash uses the same tracks for his patients.
Earl, that’s what those green pills are for. Just take those.
Ah, right. Here they are. You’re sure diesel help?
