Here’s Why I Recommend Against Using Pronouns

I made some of the words bold to make them easier to find.

A man comes running to the doctor shouting and screaming in pain. “Please doctor you’ve got to help me. I’ve been stung by a bee.” “Don’t worry;” says the doctor. “I’ll put some cream on it.” “You will never find that bee. It must be miles away by now.” “No, you don’t understand,” says the doctor. “I’ll put some cream on the place you were stung.” “Oh! It happened in the garden in back of my house.” “No, no, no!” says the doctor getting frustrated. “I mean on which part of your body did that bee sting you?” “On my finger!” screamed the man in pain. “The bee stung me on my finger and it really hurts.” “Which one?” the doctor says. “How am I supposed to know? All bees look the same to me!”

From a FB post. sorry I don’t have a better reference.

All the humor in this joke depends on the misunderstanding caused by antecedents being misunderstood. Well, it helps to not picture the body language…
