Photo Quiz

Okay, somebody PLEASE try to guess what this is and where I got it. I know you won't get it so just make something up. I will give the answer in a few days.

ANSWER 10/03/05- Okay everybody thanks for playing. I guess Joe was the closest with his answer of fishing line. I wish he would stop teasing me with talk of bezoars unless he has some to show. Anyway here is the story: A teenage boy cut the back of his right hand, went to the ER to have it sutured, 3 stitches were placed. A week later the wound became infected so the sutures were removed and he was started on antibiotics. The next day the wound dehisced. So he went home found some 10 pound test fishing line and a sewing needle and sewed it back up. He placed one suture nice and neatly but then doubled up on the next 2 and made one big knotted mess of the four sutures. Here is his hand before I removed the fishing line. It is a sorry picture because I took it with a different camera.

The boy's hand has healed well, without any further complications.

Via The Scotsman:

Yesterday Calderdale Royal Hospital, in England defended a ban on visitors cooing at other people's newborn babies for fear of trampling over the youngsters' human rights......The point has even been illustrated on one ward with a doll featuring the message: "What makes you think I want to be looked at?".....Read More.

Funny Link

Some women might find it a little offensive, just because it is a woman, but a male subject would probably be just as funny. Here it is.
If she gets stuck, run your mouse over her and left click to pick her up.

Volunteers to the Baton Rouge Encampment

These pictures come to us via the camera phone of Joe. He will have to provide the details when he gets back. Until then I will just fill in the blanks.

This is part of the 2nd wave of physicians from the home of the CC, going to Baton Rouge to volunteer their services to surviving evacuees. Two of the physicians from the first group were interviewed on Fox News. It is obvious that these guys are now ready for the camera as well. I don't even know where this first picture was made. Maybe it was in the back of the Uhaul or in some stinky gas station bathroom while waiting to fill the 3 thirty gallon barrels of gasoline to be reserved for the ride back.

The second picture says it all. While the others are off healing the sick, this man finds the perfect opportunity to pose for a photo. The question is not whether he will get an interview with Fox News, but rather, will they wait for him to stop talking before ending the interview?

More to come.....
