Voodoo doll

An anonymous reader says she works for a group of surgeons, and keeps this near her desk to take frustrations out on.




Having to deal with neurosurgeons, I sympathize. I thought about getting my own, but would likely destroy it after a weekend on call.

Different colours, different surgeons? Interesting patterns ;-)

I see there's a urologist she likes to dislike in faint yellow...

ER's Mom said...

I own that exact same bear...it's in my office and named Aorta (her twin in a labcoat is named Ulna)

Needs more in the crotch.

Just sayin'.

no pins for the mouth?

Methinks Nurse K needs one.

moose- we all could gladly add a little there, but a thumbtack is still plenty to skewer the average neurosurgeon

This makes me a bit scared for my neurosurgery elective...

Um, a noticeboard partition isn't very 'hidden'.

For that to work, the surgeons' name tags have to be pinned to the doll.

The yellow pin made me wince...

Does Mary have one?

*gasp* Where can I get one of those?!?

I wouldn't mind making one or two up that look like a few of our regular drug seekers.

I like the stragetically placed yellow pin...

Boy Scout leaders around the nation are reporting an ourbreak of searing back spasm.

Maybe a dartboard with rotating pictures?

Milla said...

No plaster to shut the mouth up?;)

The one in the crotch looks the most painful!

No good putting pins in the cranium. If surgeons had brains, they would be internists!

Oooooohhhh what a wonderful stress management tool. Though I take ERP's point about drug-seeking patients.
