A man was taken to the Sisters of Mercy Hospital for surgery. The operation went well and, as the man regained consciousness, he was visited by one of the Sisters. "Mr Hoskins, you are going to be just fine," said the nun. "But we need to know how you intend to pay for your stay here. Do you have insurance?" "No, I don't," the man whispered. "Can you pay in cash?", persisted the nun. "I'm afraid I cannot, Sister." "Do you have any close relatives?" the nun asked. "Just my sister. But she's a humble spinster nun just like yourself." "Oh, I must correct you, Mr Hoskins. Nuns are not 'spinsters'. They are married to God." "Wonderful," said Mr Hoskins. "In that case, just send the bill to my brother-in-law."
