You Saw It Here First!

My reader Kaitlin notified me yesterday that Dave Barry's column for Sunday, December 6, also featured the nose-shaped soap dispenser that I presented on December 5.

I wish to point out that Dr. Grumpy beat him to press with this important breaking news by several hours, and his column was not leaked to me in advance (unless you consider the catalog being sent to my home to be a leak).

I also am not now, nor have I ever been, Mr. Barry

And I ain't gonna pose in the buff for you guys, either.

Second thought (after clicking on Dave Barry's link)- WAAAAAYYYYYY Too Much Information in that picture there!!!!!!!!!

whew! getting flashed by a guy in a lab coat is not on my list of things for Christmas. No offense--I had a bad experience. =-D

He beat you to the educational sperm snowglobe. I think Mrs. Grumpy needs one of these for her school.

Obviously, Mr. Barry has run out of material, and is stealing your stuff.

Well, like minds think alike. I also wish to point out that I actually posted that peopleofwalmart.com photo (the one with the woman with boobs on her back) on my Twitter page two days before you posted it on your blog, though I must admit I got a little excited when I saw it here. I guess I can call myself a "grumpy" med student. lol

Good stuff.

Matt- Is there such a thing as a non-grumpy med student? I don't remember there being any in my class.

Consider the nose job dispenser and its green goo quite enough to leak (and dribble) about anyway. (Imagining that last drop that sometimes hangs on 'til at last it coalesces or gravity gets the better of it.)


Turnabout is fair play. With all those examining gowns that fail to fasten properly, it's about time we get some photos of bare cheeks or cheeky MDs. Nah. Glad it was mentioned up front we weren't getting any buff snapshots. As previous poster noted 'whew' we escaped that one.

And, until now when looked it up on Wikipedia, always thought Dave Barry was Tom Bodett...
broadcasting from Homer's Spit--lots of funnily honest people from that town.

Haha touche. Christmas is the only non-grumpy season of the year for us.

I hate to let you all down, but the picture of the guy in the article is neither Dave Barry nor a doctor. He may, however, be an unfortunate employee of the Miami Herald. A good source has informed me that their employees are being forced to pose for such pictures in order to keep their jobs.

As for hysterical pictures of docs, my all time favorite is of Robin Williams in the graduation scene in Patch Adams. ;-)

You may not be related to Mr. Barry, but are you sure you're not a long-lost cousin?
