The funny bone

The funny bone

A comment by brian123 on my previous blog made me appreciate that a bit more levity would do us all some good, so here's my first contribution in this vein.

A few years back, my state government opted to build a new major public hospital on a new site rather than upgrade the existing hospital. Hospital employees weren't even asked for their input, which lead to the following column in The Independent Weekly, a local paper. The article reported the purported outcome of the Health Minister's request to a panel of doctors on whether to build new or upgrade:

"Allergists voted to scratch it, dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves, gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, neurologists thought the administration had a lot of nerve, obstetricicians felt they were all labouring under a misconception, and opthalmologists considered the idea short-sighterd. So the minister went to other specialists. Paediatricians told him to grow up, psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, radiologists could see right through it, podiatrists thought it was a step forward, urologists felt the scheme wouldn't hold water, anaesthetists thought the whole idea was a gas and cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no. We can only guess what the proctologists said."
