Wit 'n' wisdom - 16 March 2012
His patient opened with: “After me accident at work they’ve assessed me as being 20% decapitated.”
Dr Mac replied, “I thought you had hurt your back?”
“Yeah, that’s right.”
“So you are incapacitated then?”
“No, they told me 20% decapitated.”
“Are you sure it didn’t affect your head?”
“No mate, just me back.”
As Dr Mara Marchesin of Carlingford, NSW, states, a GP requires a wide range of skills in many areas, as evidenced by these recent gems:
A patient with a “bunyip” problem on their big toe.
A gentleman wanting his BCC “exorcised”.
A lady with a leaking nose who was requesting “Driposone”.
And finally, an elderly man complaining his “morning glory” had failed to blossom.
