    A hospital here used to have ashtrays (back when they allowed smoking in hospitals) that were supplied by a local funeral home. There was a small advertisement in the bottom of the ashtray.

    Sorry, what were we talking about?

    And no spoon?

    I'm going to keep doing gripping excercises just in case I end up in the hospital and I need to strangle a nurse.

    The only places I do not have access to in the hospital / medical center I have worked in for the last 3 decades are cashier and pharmacy areas. During that time, I have seen things that have made me go Hmmmmm, and then some.

    Yes, the stick should be cut neatly into bite-sized pieces before it is eaten. A man needs his fiber.

    Yep. Like Brillo for the colon. We deliver a couple dozen "doses" every day (I work in a hospital pharmacy).

    Heart, but I also have a hemocrit of 7.4, and am extremely anemic. They're trying to figure out where I'm losing the blood at.

    Much appreciated. . They've been looking for a GI bleed for almost 2 yrs now to no avail, and are beginning to think I have a quantum black hole down there leaking blood into an alternate universe.
