Stay til the bar scene. God, I love British humor.
Welp, that made my morning. Especially the homeopathic lagers part- I’ve always kind of wondered how homeopaths don’t see the irony in things like that.
Okay, so you kill the odd patient with cancer or heart disease. Or bronchitis, flu, chicken pox or measles. But, when someone comes in with a vague sense of unease, or a touch of the nerves, or even just more money than sense, you’ll be there for them. Bottle of basically just water in one hand, and a huge invoice in the other.
Thank you, I enjoyed that!
As an emergency doc, this is still one of the funniest things I’ve seen. Colleages are apt to say, on returning to the desk after being confronted with a woo-dependent patient, homeopathic emergency?
Always gets a laugh.
Only comes second to ‘There is a fracture, I need to fix it.’
I was talking to an herbalist at an event yesterday. She was attempting to describe the concept of biodynamic and organic grain alcohol to me. At one point she stated that biodynamic gardeners have organic preparations they spray on their plants in “homeopathic doses”.
Hearing this, I quipped that those gardeners must be growing hydroponically if they use that much water. I don’t think she got the joke.
This is one of my favorite Mitchell & Webb skits. But see also, from local Seattle show Almost Live about 20 years ago… http://youtu.be/vXoCo8elnxA
laugh track ruins it
The person who conceived of the idea of a laugh track might possibly be the strongest argument that Satan exists.
I really enjoy the stuff that Mitchell and Webb do together. This one is good too.
