The Most Important Organ


One day the body organs got together and decided to have a board meeting.

Here’s what went on behind closed doors.

There was intense discussion to determine who was the most important part of the body.

The BRAIN was the first to speak. “Without me, nothing would be accomplished.”

Then the HEART spoke up. “Without me pumping blood to your brain, you could not function.”

The ARMS laughed. “You’re both wrong. Without me to put food in the mouth, nothing would work.”

The STOMACH said, “Without me, your food would not digest.”

The LUNGS bellowed back, “Without us, you could not breathe.”

The EYES blinked, “Without us, you could not see.”

The KIDNEYS snorted, “Without me, you could not detoxify and eliminate.”

Then the COLON meekly spoke up. “I am important. You need me to eliminate all of the garbage from your systems.”

Everyone laughed and made fun of him. “How can you be as important as we are? You’re just a smelly old sewer.”

The poor colon—his feelings were hurt! He turned away and thought.

“I’ll show them.” HE SHUT DOWN!

Then he sat back and watched what happened.

The BRAIN was stupefied.

The HEART’s beat was weak and irregular.

The ARMS were weak and couldn’t move.

The LUNGS gave in to shallow breathing.

The EYES became clouded.

The KIDNEYS quit.

The COLON looked around and decided it was time to call another meeting. It wasn’t too lively this time, but everyone was in total agreement,
