A man suffered a serious heart attack and had to have open heart surgery. He awakened to find himself in the care of nuns at a Catholic hospital.

As he was recovering, a nun asked him questions regarding how was he going to pay for the services the hospital has been providing. He was asked if he had health insurance. He replied in a raspy voice,

 

"No health insurance."

The nun asked if he had money in the bank. He replied,

 

"No money in the bank."

 

The nun asked,

 

"Do you have a relative who could help you?"

 

He said,

 

"I only have a spinster sister, who is a nun."

The nun told him that,

 

"Nuns are not spinsters! They are married to God."


The patient replied,

 

"Send the bill to my brother-in-law".
