An inpatient at an urban medical center hospital, frustrated after receiving no response to frequent buzzing for the floor nurses, called 911 to get some attention. An intern, during his presentation, informed me that he "rectalized" the patient. These and many other humorous incidents (most not appropriate or politically correct enough to be put in print) came to mind as I reviewed the new book by Howard J. Bennett, MD, The Doctor's Book of Humorous Quotations. In addition to being a clinical professor of pediatrics at George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, DC, Dr Bennett is a noted medical humorist and author of another book and several articles in the medical literature.
