You really think being called What You Want is better than Late For Dinner?

Barbarians. With your leeches and butcher's knives and "digital" probes. There are blood tests available. Philistines.









*I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV. In the privacy of my own home, on the other hand...

Wait, wait, wait... hold the phone, Chuck. Are you telling me you went in for a prostate check and your doctor was quoting Deliverance!? Run. Run fast, run hard, run like water through a first time Mexican tourist, but run!

The doctor does not ask you to cough during a prostate check. He just sticks that thing in there and pokes around. The cough thing is when he presses on your lateral pubis to check for an inguinal hernia.

Unless things have changed in the decade since I last had a physical.

Two things I look for in a (real) doctor:
1) a sense of humor
2) thin fingers

Wait...do I hear banjo music? :O

Yes, but you quoted Doctor J's post, in which he said “Let me know when to cough...”.

^ Oh, yeah! Whispering Clams used to tour New England doing sea shanties for old-sailors' homes.

Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladies
Farewell and adieu to you, ladies of Spain...
