Because it’s Friday I thought of a witty thought for the weekend

The improved National Health Service.

The British Medical Association has weighed in on the new Prime Minister David Cameron’s health care proposals.

The Allergists are scratching their heads, but Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.

The Gastroenterologists had a sort of a gut feeling about it but the neurologists thought the government had a lot of nerve.

The Obstetricians felt they were all labouring under a misconception.

Ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted.

Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while the Paediatricians said, “Oh, Grow up!”

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it.

Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing. The ENT specialists wouldn’t hear of it.

The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, “This puts a whole new face on the matter….”

The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pi$$ed off at the whole idea.

The Anesthetists thought the whole idea was a gas, and the Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the a**holes in London!!

My colleague, friend and drinking companion is an accomplished punster and will drive us crazy if he comes across your post.  One of these days the police are going to find his dead body behind the back of Wetherspoons.  But that’s quite a good effort.  Seven out of ten.
