To the Editor.—  More on "Small Slam" (224:1414, 1973), or "Toilet Seat Syndrome" or "Shandy Syndrome" or "Window Sash Syndrome" or "Susannah Sash Syndrome" or "The Seat of the Commode Fell Down on His Bleep Syndrome" stimulates a variant as follows:My secretary, while driving home on the freeway in heavy traffic, was further disquieted when her 3-yearold son in the back of the station wagon suddenly bellowed and bounced. As she watched through her rearview mirror, he oscillated from behind the seat to partial view. She saw a snake-like object following his every move and obviously attached intimately to him.Working her way to the emergency stop lane, she crawled to the stationwagon storage area, bull-dogged the "dogie" and removed the batteryjumper clamp cable from her son's penis.The puncture wounds and hematoma healed uneventfully.Please add Jumper Cable Syndrome to the above.
