    I work in Plastics where we do a lot of rescontruction post mastectomy. I have a box of sample implants in my desk drawer. I get a kick out of being able to say "let me show you my breasts" and won't get fired for it.

    I don't know about getting arrested, but these two will sure make heads turn!!

    1. I used to teach CPR, and the Annie had a paper strip read out that showed how hard the student was compressing, etc.
    A student of mine, (female), who was having trouble passing the class, stopped at my table at a local pizza shop, and in a voice louder than she intended, said: "Can I stop in and do a strip for you tomorrow, I've been practicing !!" You could hear necks snap, as they turned to look!!!

    2. Working in surgery, everyone I work with is, of course, in scrubs. Who hasn't run across the line: "Oh, you look different with your clothes on!"

    Not lines to get arrested for, but fun to watch lay people reactions.

    to the telemetry tech- Can you do a strip for me?, How's her strip look?

    to a patient- You need to hold still while we run a strip on you.

    about a critical lab result- Wow, he's elevated!

    It seems 1,000 years ago, but one night, over the PA system, a quiet voice came begging for "Inspirational Therapy to the west wing, STAT, please."

    My favorite especially in the ER when they come in flailing,
    " If the restraints don't work we are going to drug you"
