Hospitalized Painter

Did you hear about the painter who was hospitalized?
His doctor says it was due to too many strokes.

Why makes this Joke funny?

This joke plays on the double meaning of the word "strokes." In one sense, a stroke is a movement of the hand with a brush or other tool to apply paint to a surface, which is what painters do.

In another sense, a stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or reduced, causing brain cells to die.

The humor arises from the unexpected shift from the first meaning (related to painting) to the second (related to health), creating a pun.

The joke leads the listener to initially think about the painter`s professional activity, only to reveal that the term "strokes" refers to a medical issue, which is a surprising and humorous twist.
