December 2008 Archives

Got this via an email and thought you would all like a little humor in these current economic times!

The allergists voted to scratch it, and the dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.

The gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the neurologists thought the administration had a lot of nerve, and the obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a misconception.

The ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted; the pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the pediatricians said, "Oh, grow up!"

The psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, the radiologists could see right through it, and the surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.

The internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the plastic surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter."

The podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the urologists felt the scheme wouldn't hold water. The anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and the cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

In the end, the proctologists left the decision up to some as*$&#*es in Washington.

That about covers it....

P.S. And the oncologists thought it had grown beyond the normal or acceptable size.

Have a great day!
