Lud had been having headaches for many years and his wife finally convinced him to see a neurologist.
The doctor said, "Lud, the good news is I can cure your headaches.
The bad news is that, it will require castration. You have a very rare condition which causes your testicles to press on your spine, and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only way to
relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles."
Lud was shocked, and depressed. He wondered if he had anything to live for. He had no choice but to go under the knife. When he left the hospital, he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself. He walked down the street; he realized that he felt like a different person. He could make a new beginning, and live a new life. He saw a men's clothing store and thought, "That's what I need... a new suit."
He entered the shop, and told the salesman, "I'd like a new suit."
The elderly tailor eyed him briefly, and said, "Let's see, size 44 long."
Lud laughed, "That's right, how did you know?"
"Been in the business 60 years," the tailor said.
He tried on the suit. It fitted perfectly.
As Lud admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, "How about a new shirt?"
Lud thought for a moment, and then said, "Sure."
The salesman eyed Lud, and said, "Let's see, 34 sleeves and 16 1/2 neck."
Lud was surprised, "That's right; how did you know?"
"Told ya... been in the business 60 years."
Lud tried on the shirt and it fitted perfectly. He walked comfortably around the shop, and the salesman asked, "How about some new underwear?"
Lud thought for a moment and said, "Sure."
The salesman said, "Let's see... size 36."
Lud laughed, "Ah ha, I got you on this one – I've worn a size 34 since I was 18 years old."
The salesman shook his head, "You can't wear a size 34. A size 34 would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache."
