Why my staff hates me

Annie: "Sandy Hormone just called. She said you found a tiny aneurysm on her MRA?"

Dr. Grumpy: "Yeah, it's too small to do anything about, so I'm just going to repeat the study in 6 months to see if it's changed."

Annie: "She wants to know if it's okay for her to have sex with the aneurysm?"

Dr. Grumpy: "Only if it pays for dinner."

That might cause it to burst no matter how small it is.

Poor lady. She's seen too many Hollywood flicks which use brain aneurysms as plot points that drop you dead without notice, usually while doing something really fun. Like sex.

Did you just change the title from "Why my staff loves me"?

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Yeah, Annie told me to.

Keep her away from neurosurgeons!

The last time Dr. Cutshitopen (my favorite neurosurgeon) had a free afternoon, he rounded on the entire hospital looking for someone with mental status changes (aka a head to drill into). He found a patient with a very small aneurysm and decided that the benefits (him having something to do that afternoon) exceeded the risks (numerous, including death).

That was the lamest joke I've heard all day - but I'm still smiling, none the less.

@ Flavius: I thought it was funny :-)

Ah I wish I could find a witty man like you!

I'm tempted to go into a feminist rant about how a date buying dinner does not automatically mean a free ticket for sex and joking about it just perpetuates that stereotype and blah blah blah.

Instead I'll just use my blathering to encourage Mary and Annie to walk around oinking at you every chance they get.

I mean, if they're not already doing that. Assuming you even post this. :-)

@ Flavius

I thought it was funny too! I'm a sucker for bad puns.

Actually, the patient now also has a ready excuse ANY time she doesn't feel like having sex

"Oh sorry honey, I have a headache coming on..."

Alternative reply: "Only if her blood pressure doesn't increase."

Hells bells if your blood pressure does NOT increase during sex you're not doin' it right. Just sayin.....
