I was just talking about this yesterday- how nothing can stunt my appetite anymore. I was telling someone the despite cleaning up a guy who did a big smelly poo- I could not stop considering my options for lunch! The article tried it's best to turn you stomach and make you think- how could she, but I didn't even blink. It actually made me hungry for Chipotle!:yeah:

Love it. On a semi-related note, does Chipotle always tell you "Guac's extra….is that all right?" Umm yeah, it says it right there on the menu! I can read! Sorry, mini-rant over. Great link!

Oh, and one other thing. The Onion is known for its fake news. The issue--I think this story is actually real. I know I have been there!

My grandmother who was a nurse back at the turn of the century said she could have eaten lunch on a dead horse, lol.

Of course the story's fake. Like she's going to get a lunch break! She's going to have to score something when she gets off duty. After her charting's done. If no one calls a code while she's still charting. And no one calls in sick at the last minute...

Nothin' like cleaning a deep wound to get the hunger pains a'goin'. ;)

Why did she get an article written about that! Shoot, I have been cleaning a pt. BM all over and have my stomach growling because I was hungry I thought that was normal for nurses!

I could hold an emesis basin for a patient and then turn around and have chop suey or chicken a la king, no problem.

In nursing school during surgical clinicals, we discussed the procedure we had just seen while eating lasagna for lunch.

Most nurses know there is nothing at all odd about this.

Onion may have expected readers to be shocked and/or grossed out, but us nurses are, like, "PPppfffftttt! Yeah, and so what?"
