An Irony Rich Diet

Don't know if The Times recommends it, but they do provide it.

Here, for instance.

Hmm? You mean I have to explain it?

O.K., see we have here these frighteningly comprehensive health examinations for your CEOs, your big time execs, your VIPs. No organ will go un-X-rayed, no orifice unprobed. They'll run $2,000 to $3,000 a pop and insurance won't cover them. Keeps the riff-raff out.

And who provides these wonderful examinations? Why, Good Samaritan Hospital.

Good Samaritan. You remember the Good Samaritan? That's right. The fellow who picks up wounded strangers from the side of the road and has them taken care of at his own expense.
