Blonde jokes aside: this is hilarious!

People are always making fun of blonde's in jokes. Unfortunately they are grossly inaccurate most of the time. So I think there should be a mass exodus to Diabetic jokes. Or we should all just laugh at the real stories of Diabetics. Or maybe just this one:

This morning, I woke up at 7:10 a.m. with an extremely low blood sugar. At 7:17 a.m. I emailed my professor to let him know I that I wasn't going to make it to class this morning. This is the email I sent:

"Please excuse my absence this morning (name of the professor). For reasons beyond my immediate circumstance, the economy is falling. I don't anticipate any larges from apparitions that we're concerned about it. Please let me know: I know She-Hulk has the strength of 10 shows.

Your student,

-name withheld"

I sent another email to the same professor about 2 minutes later. It read:

"That last email had my summer tile incorrectly displayed in the credits.

-name withheld"

When I finally came around, I called him to explain. He couldn't stop laughing.

Me: Oh hey (name of professor)...It's [name withheld]...did you get my emails this morning?
Prof: I sure did! (Starts laughing)
Me: Yeah...umm....I'm a type 1 diabetic...so uh, I had low blood sugar, and I was in no condition to come to class...
Prof: (Still laughing)
Me: Uhhh....Yeah, wouldn't you know? Apparently She-Hulk has the strength of 10 shows...
Prof: (Laughing harder)
Me: Well, anyways, I was wondering what we covered in class today so I can make sure my reading is current for Wednesday...
Prof: (Starts choking on his lunch, still laughing)
Prof: Oh man! I'm dying! I sent you an email!

One of the many upsides of having a dead pancreas, obviously.
