I understand. We journalists have our own brand of weird humor too.Cheers to you.
What do you think about Dan Rather's stuff now? Guy's clearly had his fill of trump and his ilk.
When I worked transplant,we were noted for gallows humor. It kept us sane.
transplant is a whole other ball game, never was part of the transfer and such, but I can imagine. I'd see them hustling through the hall on the way to the elevator up to the surgical suites with the camp cooling thing and say 'is that my lunch? Just leave it on my desk'.
Asystole - I had to Google it.
My advise is to avoid it, Joeh.
Medical people have to have a sense of humor.
What did Jimmy sing...."If we weren't all crazy we'd all go insane..."
Haha--not! Just get repaired.
If only, Joanne, if only. Thanks for the thought.
I like the "pacemaker" shirt best. They've certainly come a long way in our time and I quite agree with its message. Hope all goes well.
Thanks Geo. I could have used a moderating voice in the cardio guy's office this afternoon when I heard myself essentially telling him he didn't know what the fuck he was talking about.I think I might be the nightmare patient.
I wish I could share this with the cardiopulmonary surgeon who operated on my husband. He would get a kick out of it, I'm sure!
I remember a few good neurosurgery lines, my favorite being this one:What's the difference between a neurosurgeon and God?God doesn't think he's a neurosurgeon.
So a family practice doc, an internist and a neurosurgeon go duck hunting. A duck flies over their blind, the FP stands up, says 'looks like a duck" and fires. Another duck comes, the internist stands, says "looks like a duck, flies like a duck" and fires. Another bird comes. The surgeon stands and fires, then says "Was that a duck?"
Are you going to get one of the shirts?
Nah, but I do like the third one, but I'd look ridiculous wearing it. Maybe 30 years ago, but now....
