Because The Bedpost Doesn’t Hurt

I heard this story around 9/11.

There was a healer working on the back of a patient, in a bed. The healer would rub the patient’s back for a few minutes, then she would hold on to the bedpost for minute, then she would go back to rubbing the patient’s back. After 3 or 4 times of holding the bedpost, the patient finally asks:

“Why do you keep holding the bedpost?”

The healer answers, “Because I need to put this pain somewhere. And the bedpost won’t hurt.”

Where is your bedpost?
