The Million Dollar Brain

There’s a story about a wealthy man who was terminally ill. The doctor said, "There’s only one thing that will save you. A brain transplant. It’s an experimental operation. And it’s very expensive."

The wealthy guy said, "Money is no object. Can you get me a brain?" The doctor said, "We have three available right now. The first one was from a college professor. But it’ll cost you $10,000."

The guy said, "Don’t worry. I can pay. What about the second brain?" The doctor said, "It was from a rocket scientist. It’ll cost you $100,000."

The man said, "I have the money. And I’d be a lot smarter too. But tell me about the third brain."

The doctor said, "The third brain is from our preacher. But it would set you back a million dollars." The man said, "A million dollars? Why so much for his brain?"

The doctor said, "It’s never been used."
