Yes, I'm juvenile

This invitation to a CME (Continuing Medical Education) course showed up in the weekend mail (I have no idea why there is a gray box instead of a picture. I didn't do that).

For other great MD names, please see this post, and the comments that followed.

HILARIOUS!! I guess I'm juvenille, too!

There's a GYN here named Dr. Clapp and a urologist named Dr. Loveless :)

Thanks for the laughs.

I laughed, too.

I was talking about unfortunate names with a colleague the other day (there is a Castator in my office).

He had a high school teacher named Mrs. Puhatch. Pronounced Poo-hatch.

My family had moved to Cornfields, USA where I was working at a job 65 miles from home when I was asked to give a talk to son's 3rd grade class about pharmacy careers. When I mentioned several co-workers, one little kid asked, "Do you have to have a funny name to be a pharmacist?"

At the bottom, it says to view the activity that prompted the questions...I don't really have to say which activities popped into my head, do I? I'm thinking this is an excellent arguement for legal name changes!

BTW, we have a GP around here names Dickensheets...at least he's not a gyno!

Dr. Doody! That totally made my day!

Mari-Ann said...

We have an OB/GYN practice in town with two of the doctors being named Little and Cox. Makes me giggle in a third grade way.

Verifier word: pracker. Hey, it sounds kind of dirty, or is it just me?

Bet she thought twice about naming her kids Howard or Adeline or Zachariah Thomas.

Awesome. Thankfully he is not a GI.

*snicker* Dr. Doody!

Just in my small town (40,000 pop.), we have a Dr. Payne (dentist), Dr. Deathrage (surgeon), Dr. Fear (ENT) and Dr. Slaughter (oral surgeon). It's an odd anomaly considering the size of our town!

Although nothing to do with medicine, there was an Alison Doody who played the Nazi woman in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade".... always wondered why she didn't change her name or at least use a "stage name".

And what is it with all these dentists named Payne? Or do all you guys actually live in the same town? O.o

medrninja said...

So have you asked Dr. Doody like 15 questions yet? Just so you can type Dr. Doody over and over - Dr. Doody I was wondering....I can see your point Dr. Doody but....Really Dr. Doody because that's not what I heard....Is your refrigerator running Dr. Doody....

P.S. Where the heck does Miss Kismet live because I want to be sure and *never* rent a motel room in/go to that town. Ever.

Just read the urologist post too. I know of a kid called Eric Chen - now we know what he's going to do when he grows up!

I, however, have never grown up....

PS: My sister's eye specialist when she was a child was a Dr. Wong See and I knew of a dentist called Dr. Fang.

susyg said...

I thought that was one of your made up names like Dr. Grumpy or Dr. Pissy.
Nah,
So funny.

When your name is unusual and kids are in the future, best options are to 1. move someplace where the name is common (there were three families with our foreign name when we moved to this college town, despite a lucrative 'family crest' mail-order genealogy business claiming we were the only family in the whole country with the particular surname, why even the winner of NYC hotdog eating contest for several years had our name!), or 2. move somewhere where everyone's name is unusual (and believe me, in this university town with 5,479 international students in 2008, someone with the last name Jones or Smith is pretty uncommon; there are only 5 people with the last name 'Smith' in the phone book) or, 3. learn to 'suck it up' --deal with it, e.g. the boy named 'Sue' or the girl named 'Stanley'.

i had a subsitute teacher while in elementary school who was Ms Doody- word was she was an excommunicated nun.

At our rural hospital- we have an Internal Med doc who is also county coroner- Dr Deye.

I saw an orthopod once whose name was Dr Flake. Great guy, really.

All this disparaging of Dr. Doody.

I'll have you know that the surname "Doody" has a long and proud heritage tracing all the way back to the Isle of Poo in the providence of Scat.

Bulrush said...

"Well, Howdy, Doody!"

Shalom said...

This wouldn't seem weird to anyone who grew up in the Sheepshead Bay section of Brooklyn, where Doody's Hardware has been a neighborhood institution for probably 50+ years.

Admittedly I snickered a bit the first time I saw it as a kid.

word verification "cative"? The state of being a cat?

must be an american thing.
'doody' means nothing in this part of the woods.

Marco said...

There's a business out there for cleaning up dog poop out of your yard. It's called 'Doody Calls.'
