Can't argue with that

Mr. Klumsy: "I hurt my back when I fell down."

Dr. Grumpy: "What made you fall down?"

Mr. Klumsy: "I don't know. Gravity, I guess."

I can attest, as Robin Williams so ably pointed out, that gravity works.

>:p

I would laugh even harder if this patients name was Isaac!

That's right up there with "what brought you here?" as an invitation for the concretely enhanced to cause much head slapping. D'oh!

ER's Mom said...

I agree with your patient. Gravity is amazing. ;)

Dr. G., you are a daily delight.....I wish I could thank you properly for the laughs, giggles and chortles you bring me. Your medical practice goes far beyond Neurology.....wish you could be properly rewarded for this service you provide the needy and laugh-deprived.
Just want you to know you ARE mightily appreciated.

Amen to what Lo said.

And I anticipate the concrete-minded when I ask "what brought you here to the ER?" Altho I do enjoy the husbands who say, "My wife." ;-)

Is that the ground rushing up to meet me?

"I was walking down the street when the sun shone in my eyes. Photons are carriers of the electromagnetic force. But then of course the sun is a giant fusion reactor, which is powered by the strong nuclear force. Anyway, I couldn't see where I was going, and I tripped over some weak gauge bosons."

Gravity--it's not just a good idea, it's the law.

(credit to George Carlin, maybe?)

Gravity can be a bitch sometimes.

Gravity sucks ~

There is no gravity. The earth sucks.

I love a good smart ass!

My husband described the matter as my own special gravitational force.
But, I do like the explanation about photons interfering with vision and itinerant bosons, better.

Probably works for Mircrosoft tech support, the short version:

Two guys are in a light airplane, late night, foggy, failed radio and they are totally lost.
They see a man in an office tower so they buz the building holding up a sign:

Where are we?

A minute later the man holds up the reply:

In an airplane.

THe pilot checks his map and using a compass and stopwatch finds the airport.
His passenger asks: how did you do that?

The pilot replies: That had to be Microsoft tech support HQ, the answer was totally correct and absolutely useless!
