Medical Humor

From the venerable Musings of a Dinosaur:

First Law: The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature takes its course.
Second Law: It is impossible to make an asymptomatic patient feel better.
Third Law: The urgency of the test is inversely proportional to the IQ of the insurance company preauthorization clerk.
Fourth Law: There is no cure for stupid.
Fifth Law: Bad things really do happen to good people.
Sixth Law: The better the surgeon, the more reluctant s/he is to operate.
Seventh Law:
Part A: It has to be fun.
Part B: If it isn’t fun, see Part A.
Eighth Law: Half of what is taught in medical school is wrong, but no one knows which half.
Ninth Law: Poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Tenth Law: A bad idea held by many people for a long time is still a bad idea.
