The Doctor received an emergency call from Murphy, who appeared to be in a bit of a panic and said he had a fly in his ear.
The Doctor suggested that he try an old home remedy.
“Just pour warm olive oil into your ear and lie down for a few minutes”, the Doctor said. “When you lift your head the fly should emerge with the liquid”.
Murphy thought that sounded like a good idea, thanked the Doctor and hung up the phone.
A few minutes later, the Doctor received another phone call from Murphy.
“Into which ear should I pour the oil?”
