(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physiciansper year are120,000.

Now think about this:

Guns:

(B) The number of accidental gun deathsper year, all age groups,is1,500.

(C) The number of accidental deathsper gun owneris.000188.

So, statistically, doctors are approximately9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do."
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN,BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!

You are even more amazing than I thought. I know its satire, but what enjoyable ambiguity. Thanks for the option to die of humor. As for the kinds of people in the world, there are only two that matter, those who eat all the cake they want and those who cannot eat all the cake they want. May all the conflicts of today lead to everyone being in the cake eating group. Amen. Thanks Oh Great One!
