Orthopaedics

I really really shouldn't do this, but it amused me too much.

I'd say I'm sorry, but clearly I'm not sorry enough not to do it, so I s'pose it wouldn't count.

Jokes I heard today 'bout orthopaedic surgeons I simply have to share :

Q. What does an orthopaedic surgeon call the heart.
A. A soft tissue organ for pumping cefuroxime around the body.

Q. What do you call 2 orthopaedic surgeons reading an ECG.
A. A double blind trial.

Now, tell me honestly that you're not grinning :-)

Much told by the anaesthetists:

The sheet separating the orthopod and bits he is bashing from the anaesthetist is....?

..the blood-brain barrier.

Haha! My 5th year ortho placement starts on Monday, I probably shouldn't use those...

I'm laughing my head off - though I've heard the latter before!

Oh, yeah, PS: I'm a tricksy wee scamp!

Lol! That's awesome! Although the orthopod I used to scrub in with was pretty freaking smart. Of course, he was a veterinary ortho surgeon, so maybe it's different!

Where do you hide a $20 bill from an orthopod?

In a book.
