It’s easy to get a vet’s statement that he couldn’t find anything wrong with your bird, if it’s a kind of bird he doesn’t know how to find anything wrong with.
TEXT OF COMIC:
So, the vet didn’t have a clue.
But he says, as far as he could tell, the bird was fine.
So, I guess Poly has a clean BILL of health!
Was that a pun about the bird’s beak, or about the exorbitant veterinary bill you’re holding in your hands?
If I don’t laugh I’ll cry.
