Doc, you've gone and done it ANOTHERgain!!!

Copied, posted, and credited, with this caveat:

"Ah, but on a more serious note, as a sixty-seven (67) year old resident at the Armed Forces RETIREMENT Home, I have to wonder about the competence and/or motivation of a physician who makes a deliberate CHOICE to specialize in geriatrics?

Could it possibly be due to the fact that no one will question their mortality data, since it is not out of the ordinary when an old person dies?"

The only medical specialty that has always puzzled me is proctology. I gotta believe those guys have a real problem "facing "their patients. Who would want to spend their life just dealing with a**holes?
On the other hand, I have to confess a youthful amateur practice in gynecology.

I think this is the guy who did my meniscus repair! I surmise that the photos of Olympians in his office were taken from magazines!

@It's No Gouda: I have a passing aquaintance with a proctologist (friend of friends). He is loaded so perhaps there is some recompense for dealing with exhaust pipes all day.

@John Robert Mallernee- That's an interesting and depressing idea about why some people might go into the field. And you've also prompted me to think "you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but you can call a new geriatric an old dog." Or something.

@It's No Gouda- I've always imagined that proctologists really wanted to be miners, but had a fear of cave-ins.

@redswebjournal- The music of medicine.

@Bruce Bleu- If the Olympians were Thor and Odin, it might explain the problem.

@TheOldMan- I've had jobs which were probably less fun and for worse pay. Still, at the end of the day I could eat finger food without worrying about it...

Stilton,
One of them kinda looked like Odin Wan Kenobin, "these are NOT the cartilages you are looking for".

Remember when Kramer told Jerry Seinfeld that at a party he should hang out with the proctologists because they always had the best stories?
