Overheard yesterday in a hospital waiting room:

"They reckon that one in five people will be knocked out by a dog in their lifetime."

I don't know who 'they' are. Cats, possibly. And surely the odds increase if it's a boxer. But either way, those words were uttered outside my consulting room yesterday by a lady who's recently been flattened by a Labrador. Which is what you call being dogged by bad luck. Or just barking mad.

You don't only hear odd things in hospitals though, you see them too. This was stuck on the back of the toilet door in outpatients on Monday...

It's my favourite hospital poster since this one.

But surely not your MORE favourite one than the other one!

I don't think I ever wore clothes like that.  Mind you, my memory's not what it was.

Something in my mind... if you wore clothes like that then the chances of having to wear... you get my drift.  The only male 'people' to wear tartan style check trousers are Rupert the Bear and inhabitants of Devizes.
