A blonde went to see her doctor and said: "Please help me, Doc, I can't stop passing gas."
"How long have you had this problem?" Ask the doctor. The blonde answered: "It has been three days and it happens quite often, Doc. As a matter of fact, I have broken wind five times since I sat on this chair. Thank goodness they make no sound and do not stink, otherwise I'd be so embarrassed, and I'd rather die."
The doctor examined the patient, gave her a prescription and told her to come back in one week.
The blonde came back a week later and complained: "The pills you gave me didn't work at all, Doc, and the problem is getting worse.
I am still passing gases as often. Although they are still silent but they now stink. Please tell me honestly whether you can help me, Doc?"
"Of course I can help you," replied the doctor. He wrote another prescription and said: "Contrary to what you think, the pills I gave you worked very well. Now take this second medication and come back next week."
Questions: What is the logical explanation for the doctor's conclusion that the first medication works and what is the second medication for?
Answer: The first medication did clear the blonde's sinus condition and restore her sense of smell.
The second medication is for her hearing problem.
