The new miracle medical practitioner was in town. Rumor had it that he could cure anything and anybody with compound solvents and capsules made by himself, and everyone was amazed with what he can do. Everyone execpt for Mr. Smith, the town grouch(不高兴的人),who thought that his fame was exaggerated. So Mr. Smith went to this “miracle doctor” to prove that he wasn’t anybody special. So he goes the doctor’s clinic, “Hey, doc, I have lost my sense of taste. I can taste nothing’, so what are you going to do?”

The doctor scratches his head and mumbles to himself a little in medcical jargon, then tells Mr. Smith, “I don’t think you need any vitamin supplements.What you need is jar number 43.”

Jar number 43? Mr. Smith wonders. So the doctor brings the jar labeled with the number 43 and tells Mr. Smith to taste it. He taste it and immediataly spits it out, “This is too acid!” he yells.

“I just restored your impaired sense of taste Mr. Smith,” says the docor.

So Mr. Smith goes home very mad. One month later, Mr. Smith goes back to the doctor along with a new problem, “Doc,” he starts, “ I can’t remember!”

The doctor scratches his head and mumbles to himself a little and tells Mr. Smith, “What you need is jar number 43…”

Before the doctor finished his sentence, Mr. Smith shrank back and fled the office.

城里来了一个神奇的医生。据说他能用自己研制的复合冲剂和胶囊治好任何人,除了城里爱挑毛病的史密斯先生,所有的人都觉得他医术很神奇。史密斯觉得医生的名声被夸大了,于是他去找这个神医,想证明他没有什么过人之处。他来到医生的诊所,对医生说,“喂,医生,我失去味觉了,尝不出任何味道,怎么办呢?”

医生搔了搔脑袋,用医生的术语嘀咕了一会儿,然后告诉史密斯,“我认为你不需要任何维生素方面的补充,你需要的是43号的罐子。”

43号的罐子?史密斯先生感到莫名其妙。于是,医生拿出了一个贴着43号标签的罐子让史密斯先生尝一尝。史密斯尝了一口,立即吐了出来,“太酸了!”他大叫。

“我只是想恢复你那损坏的味觉,史密斯先生,”医生说道。

史密斯回到家里,十分生气。一个月后,史密斯先生带着一个新问题又去找医生。“医生,”他说,“我记不起东西了。”

医生搔了搔脑袋,嘀咕了一会儿,对史密斯先生说道: “你需要的是43号罐子…….”

医生还没有说完,史密斯先生就缩了回去,飞一般地离开了诊室。
