Entry from March 14, 2020
“Doctor, doctor, I feel like a carrot."/"Don’t get yourself in a stew.”

The word “stew” (a dish cooked by stewing) also means “a state of agitated excitement, worry, and/or confusion.” A joke is:

Patient: Doctor, doctor, I feel like a carrot.
Doctor: Don’t get yourself in a stew.


The joke has been cited in print since at least 2013.
