A woman brought her baby to see her doctor, and he
determined right away that the baby had an earache.
He wrote a prescription for ear drops. In the directions he
wrote, "Put two drops in right ear every four hours" and he
abbreviated "right" as an R with a circle around it.
Several days passed, and the woman returned with her
baby, complaining that the baby still had an earache, and
his little behind was getting really greasy with all those drops
The doctor looked at the bottle of ear drops and sure
enough, the pharmacist had typed the following instructions
on the label: "Put two drops in R ear every four hours."
