THE JOKE - Can I get a second opinion?
Doctor: “You are very sick.”
Patient: “Can I get a second opinion?”
Doctor: “Yes, you are very ugly, too…”
Get in this question means (to) obtain.
Because the patient doesn’t believe that the doctor is correct in his diagnosis and asks the doctor for another diagnosis from a different doctor, to ensure the first one is correct. Instead, the doctor gives the patient another opinion about him – that he is very ugly.
Have you ever needed to get a second opinion about something?
