The Social Skills of Surgeons

There has to be a respite from politics. What used to be referred to as the art of the possible has become the art of the incredible; and the mountain of half truths, embellishments and overstated claims have become exhausting and downright disgusting. The revelation that Joe the Plumber was a Resident of Arizona in 2001, is a delinquent taxpayer, whose former address is at Keating Street and in the same building where a terrorist resided at the time he was there, and who isn't really a plumber; is troubling enough to consider this man a Republican plant precisely placed to discredit the Democratic candidate. What lengths would politics go to just to win? There seems to be no limit.

There's a story being spread via e-mail which concerns 5 surgeons who attended a Medical Conference, and who found themselves sharing a table during one of the breaks. They started discussing who the best patients to operate on were.

The first surgeon from New York City said: "I'd like to see Accountants on my operating table. When you open them up, everything inside is numbered".

The second from Chicago responds: "Yes, but you should try electricians, everything inside them is color coded".

The third surgeon from Houston remarked: No, I really think librarians are the best, everything inside them is in alphabetical order".

The fourth surgeon from Los Angeles chimes in: "You know, I really like construction workers. Those guys understand when you have a few parts left over".

But the fifth surgeon from Washington DC shut them all up when he observed: "You're all wrong! Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There's no guts, no heart, no brain, no balls, and no spine; and the head and the butt are interchangeable!


Happy Weekend Everyone!

It's about time politicians interchanged their butts with their heads, to make them look more appropriate for what they are and what they do.

Nice one!
Hm.. I wonder what they made of chefs??

For chefs like me, I love to visit the aquarium. Know why? Everything looks yummy! I can think up of 10 ways to cook that 100 kg garoupa!!!! :P

Very good - and truly hilarious :) Surgically accurate, least the last bit...

And i agree -- it would seem that politicians would take any measure to win, no matter how underhanded...

Haaaaa! GOOD ONE!!!
I wasn't sure where that was going! lol, but the end was worth it!

Yes, I think that Joe the Plumber was a plant, too. I even suggested that the next day after the debate. It was too convenient, and all set up just right. But the McCain team is such a desperate bunch at this point that they didn't do their homework!
See? Just go ahead and shoot yourself right in the foot! We'll just sit here and watch, shaking our heads.

This is becoming prolific....all this opposition, in every shape and form imaginable. Let's you know that something great really is about to happen!!! :)

Hello Kim,

I just got tired of the political scene. I also just wanted to bang the heads of politicians. Where I am, the politicians have uniforms and have several medals displayed on their clothing. Perhaps for snuffing the lives of defenseless protesters or starving an opposition region to death.

I needed a good laugh myself. Thanks, hope you had a merry Monday too! :-) --Durano, done!

Hi Anonymous,

They certainly do, so everyone can see them for what they are ---holes!
Do you know why they are called such? Because all they have is a diarrhea of words and a constipation of thoughts. Thus, what comes out is a lot of excrement. :-) --Durano, done!

Hi Sher,

I don't know how to describe a chef being operated on, perhaps they have all the ingredients prepared and ready to cook?

I like fish too, but I refuse to eat what comes from the river or the sea in this country I'm at. Yuck! I pity those who had to be sacrificed and later made to feed the fish.

BTW, when are you scheduled to leave for Singapore? :-) --Durano, done!

Hi r,

If ever there was a truly altruistic and noble politician, he/she must have long been extinct and erased from the face of the earth.

Obama may be the better of the two, or even better than most in this sense, but he is certainly not cut in the mold i refer to. He is not a reincarnation of the selfless politician - although he has a lot of good in him...I hope. :-) --Durano, done!

Hi Fitness Diva,

It was kind of roundabout wasn't it? I wanted to let those who would read wonder where the whole thing was leading to.

A plant Joe the plumber is, and not a very good one too! This too will implode. I think the McCain campaign is done for. :-) --Durano, done!

He he he, that was hilarious Durano..touche' ...bull's eye for the one about politicians...

Zhu said...

:D Love this one!

We are all so sick of the campaign... and I don't even live in the U.S.A! I think there were a lot of cheap shots and not enough on the real questions... for both candidates.

Hi Jena Isle,

Yes, thanks. I wanted to get away from politics but ended up with a punch line on politicians.

I guess it's a good enough rest from the lies and the bare faced unfounded claims, not to mention the deliberate divisiveness that the Republicans are fomenting through the combination of hatred and fear.

Nice article on the frogs by the way. :-) --Durano, done!

Hi Zhu,

You are much closer to the US than I am. I'm still here in this Junta ruled country and I'm really getting fed up. I am totally aghast at the deliberate encouragement of fear and hate that the GOP is employing.

I really feel like telling John McSame and that Sarahcuda, if I ever get a chance to meet them face to face that "my cow died yesterday, so I don't need your bull!" :-) --Durano, done!

I like the fact that I'm seeing more humor in your recent posts :)

durano lawayan a.k.a. brad spit said...

Hi Zen,

It's getting very heavy talking about economics and politics - two topics that are taking its toll on the peace and sanity of people all over the world.

In a remote rural community where I am, the hopes that we are raising are in danger of falling flat in our faces due to the shenanigans of the few who control the wheels of the financial markets, and whose greed are so insatiable that they would impact negatively on the simple aspirations of the marginalized for a normal life, a small livelihood, food on the table, education for their kids, and a semblance of health care.

Thanks for dropping by. :-) --Durano, done!
