More Physician Humor

  1. Four physicians, a family practice doc, a psychiatrist, a surgeon, and a pathologist went duck hunting.

    A bird flew over, and the family practitioner jumped up, took aim, then thought "I'm not sure that's a duck. Maybe I'd better get a second opinion." By which time, the duck had flown out of range.

    Another bird flew over, and the psychiatrist jumped up, took aim, then thought "I know that's a duck. But maybe he might not know he's a duck. How fair would it be to shoot..." By the time he was halfway into his debate, the duck flew out of range.

    Another bird flew over, and the surgeon jumped up and BLAM!!! He downs the bird. He then turned, kicked the pathologist, and says "Go make sure that's a duck, would ya?"

    Ain't that the truth?

    The internist knows everything but can't do anything about it. The surgeon can do anything, but doesn't know much. The pathologist knows it all and does it all, but it's too late.

    And everybody knows that an orthopaedic surgeon has to be as strong as an ox. And twice as smart.

    (G) One of my best friends is an ortho. trauma surgeon (mille dei baci, Carlo). We "Play nurse and doctor" the REALISTIC way. He ignores me, and I say nasty things about him behind his back.

    What do you call two orthopedic surgeons looking at an EKG?

    A double blind study.

    Dennie - I've heard that one as:

    "the psychiatrist knows all and does nothing
    the surgeon does all and knows nothing
    the dermatologist knows nothing and does nothing
    the pathologist knows everything, but a day too late."

    Bungies - I hand't heard the part about the dermatologist. That's funny.
