* Dr. Brown, Chicago Hospital, writes: "A woman came into the ER, ready to give birth, followed by her husband and about ten kids. Their last name was King. We took her to the operating room and soon I came out and announced that he was the proud father of a baby boy--I told him his wife said that he should name the little one. Mr. King scratched his head and said, "Gee I just don't know, I've just about used up all the names I can think of." He glanced up at a sign that read, "No Smoking." "That's it," he says, "I'll name him Nosmo--Nosmo King."

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book made me laugh so hard. Included are personal experiences, strange names for doctors, and weird medical records. Great for anyone who wants a good laugh.
A quite typical collection of amusing hospital bloopers, quotes and urban legends. I don't think there's much here that's original; you'll find the bulk of these in other books and online as well.
