Many thanks to Ramon, my blogger friend in the United States, for sending me the following joke: as he points out, you don't have to be Catholic to appreciate this, but... 

A man suffered a serious heart attack while shopping. The sales assistants called the emergency services, and the paramedics rushed the man to the nearest hospital.
He awakened from open heart surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at a local Catholic Hospital. A nun was seated next to his bed holding a clip board loaded with several forms. She asked him how he was going to pay for his treatment.
"Do you have health insurance?" she asked.
He replied in a raspy voice, "No health insurance."
"Do you have money in the bank?"
"No money in the bank."
"Do you have a relative who could help you with the payments?"

He said, "I only have a spinster sister, and she's a nun!"
The nun became agitated and announced loudly, "Nuns are not spinsters. Nuns are married to God."

The patient smiled and replied, "Perfect. Send the bill to my brother-in-law..."
