Joke Decoder (panel 17)

vert-17Bone Out of Place

Here we see Vert (a bone) waiting at the bus stop, looking a little “out of place.”  This joke draws off a sometimes controversial chiropractic patient lecturing style.  Some chiropractors will describe the subluxation as saying that the “bone [vertebra] is out of place.”  Others will describe it as simply being “stuck” and not moving appropriately.  Whatever the case, the cartoon was meant to poke fun at ourselves.  Special thanks to my wife for drawing the female in this cartoon (not my strong suit 🙂 ).
