Rectal thermometer daffodil joke.

I got the following joke via e-mail the other day, and trying to remember its source is driving me nuts. I know I’ve heard it before, not just as a joke, but as something that actually happened or at least was a story by a well-known author. Does anyone else recognize it?
A big-shot business man had to spend a couple of days in the hospital. He was a royal pain to the nurses because he bossed them around just like he did his employees. None of the hospital staff wanted to have anything to do with him. The head nurse was the only one who could stand up to him. She walked into his room and announced, “I have to take your temperature.” After complaining for several minutes, he finally settled down, crossed his arms and opened his mouth.
“No, I’m sorry,” the nurse stated, “but for this reading, I can’t use an oral thermometer.” This started another round of complaining, but eventually he rolled over and bared his behind. After feeling the nurse insert the thermometer, he heard her announce, “I have to get something. Now you stay JUST LIKE THAT until I get back!” She leaves the door to his room open on her way out. He curses under his breath as he hears people walking past his door, laughing. After almost an hour, the man’s doctor comes into the room. “What’s going on here?” asked the doctor. Angrily, the man answers, “What’s the matter, Doc? Haven’t you ever seen someone having his temperature taken before?” After a pause, the doctor replies, “Yes. But never with a daffodil!”

Its a scene from Carry On Doctor isn’t it?
The scene is like the rest of the film, as funny as being slapped around the face with a new born lamb.

IIRC, that gag was also used in an episode of ER several years ago.

Thanks Pushkin! That’s an odd expression, but it does sum things up pretty well. I don’t think that’s a movie I’ll be rushing out to rent.

Thanks for the followup andygirl.
