Friday Joke: What’s the Root Cause of this Root?


The Associated Press reported that Ron Sveden was worried about cancer when he had increased coughing and an x-ray showed a dark spot in his lungs. Then things got strange. The tests came back negative on the cancer. What was in his lung causing problems?

The doctors decided they had to go in for a look. What was the root cause of his problem? A ROOT! (Well … actually a sprout.)

They removed a mass and sent it to pathology. The report was that he had a vegetable – a pea – sprouting in his lungs!

Now that’s a rooty root cause!
