Okay---this definitely makes the Top 10 List! Gives new meaning to pain in the a$$.
LOL! You don't have to make this stuff up!
Follow me at http://twitter.com/bayside747
and to find a list of nurses on twitter, go to
I tweet medical, peds, psych, nutrition and smoking cessation news.
The best way I can describe it is a cross between Facebook and Instant Messaging. Some folks post interesting/entertaining/helpful stuff--others merely drivel. you can select who you follow/what input you get. It takes a little getting used to at first, but is a great lesson in brevity. All posts have to be no more than 140 characters. Many folks have their twitter posts go directly to their Facebook pages. Hope this is helpful. Does anybody else out there Twitter? @FunnyNurse.
Are you Twittering yet? If so, then you're going to want to check out the folks on this list:
If you're not, then now's a great time to get started.
The magazine is back--now online and looking for new and improved stories, jokes, anecdotes. We could all use a laugh about now, huh?!
After 10 year hiatus JNJ is back online!
Just read the story about the gal that swallowed her engagement ring that her boyfriend slipped into her milkshake. She didn't believe him until she saw the x-ray! Fortunately, the crisis passed What's the funniest/strangest thing you've ever seen on an x-ray?
With Valentine's Day around the corner, I was remembering how my first husband always used to get me a Valentine's gift with either a) an electrical cord or b) a non-stick surface (that's why he was my FIRST husband--ha!) His idea of the ultimate gift was some kind of combination of the two--like a non-stick electric skillet. One year I got an electric leaf blower. Another year, an electric knife. (oh, I'm feeling tingly all over...) Nurses need romance too!
Reported years ago in Journal of Nursing Jocularity: Patient brought into the ER, extremely hypoglycemic and completely covered with a layer of fine white crystals. Turns out his family poured sugar all over him to bring up his BS before bringing him in. :chuckle
FYI~ The Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor is offerering 16.25 contact hours for nurses at the conference in Vegas April 2-5. There's more info at http://aath.org/conference.htm if you're interested. Looks like a good line-up. Quite a few nurses are presenting, along with many other experts in the field of therapeutic humor, caring clowns, and psychoneuroimmunology.
Fyi, I put a nice plug for AllNurses.com in my article in July AORN, (Humor in the OR: A Stitch in Time?). Hope it gets you more hits--you guys rock!
not exactly charting, but instructions on a prescription for a yeast infection medication read: Insert vaginally until exhuasted.
I love Carl's work. His cartoons are so funny. I recommend him to all my friends. Thanks for the post. Another great nurse cartoonist is John Wise, as well as Bob Quick. They were both cartoonist for The Journal of Nursing Jocularity.
What's the difference between a nun and a nurse?
A nurse only has to service one god.
