Medical Grade Duct Tape

Announcer: In these economic times it's important to find new answers to old problems. That's why the Duct Tape Corporation is pleased to announce new Medical Grade Duct tape.

Sound: Operating Room noises.

Doctor: Is the patient ready?

Nurse: They're wheeling him in now.

Patient: Ohhh.

Doctor: This should be a simple triple by-pass. Scalpel

Nurse: Here, Doctor

patient: (nervously) Ahh, wait a minute. Shouldn't I be sedated first?

Doctor: What? Do you know what that would cost? Nurse?

Nurse: Yes, Doctor?

Doctor: Tape him down.

Sound: Rip. Rip.

Patient: (paniced) I don't know about this. This doesn't seem like a good idea.

Sound: Rip.

Patient: Mmmm, Uhhh, Mmmm

Doctor: Quit complaining. You'll faint as soon as we start cutting! Okay, making the first incision.

Nurse: First incision.

Doctor: Suction.

Sound: Vacumn and sucking noises.

Doctor: That's good.

Sound: Slurping sound.

Doctor: This machine is much better than the old one. Will this be available for my four o'clock?

Nurse: The Janitor needs it back at five.

Doctor: We'll have to work quickly then. Okay...here's the problem. Ohh!

Nurse: Problem doctor?

Doctor: These arteries are really plugged up! It's like a fat fryer in here. Okay. Time to re-connect the major artery.

Nurse: Suture?

Doctor: No Tape...Duct Tape.

Nurse: Duct Tape Doctor?

Doctor: Yes, it's quicker, easier, and it doesn't bio-degrade.

Sound: Ripping of tape.

Doctor: Okay, just have to watch...oh damn!

Nurse: Problem?

Doctor: Yes. The bottom has stuck to the middle. Can you get that?

Nurse: Here?

Doctor: No, you're twisting it. Yes. That's it. Okay. Let's close.

Sound: Ripping of tape.

Doctor: That's good.

Nurse: Yes Doctor.

Doctor: It's bleeding a little there. Stick another piece on.

Sound: Ripping

Doctor: Longer.

Sound: Rip

Doctor: Bit more.

Sound Rip

Doctor: Perfect.

Announcer: Three days later...

Doctor: So, Mr Jones, how are you feeling?

Patient: (weakly) A bit better..

Doctor: Just want to check how you're healing...

Sound: Long loud rip

Patient: Blood curdling scream.

Doctor: Very good. That's coming along nicely. I'll just get the nurse to tape you up again. Nurse!

Announcer: Yes, new medical grade Duct Tape, doing our bit to bring down medical costs and helping to save Medicare.

You know, duct tape is much more effective than leather restraints, you do not need a special bed, you can just duct them right there to the wall or the chair, or the floor.....

What a great idea!! I'm never without my roll of everyday duct tape, and we all know how many million things it's good for, so pharmaceutical-grade duct tape would be a great breakthrough, IMO! :rotfl:
