    Went to see the urologist today. The waiting room was overflowing with old guys.

    I'm sitting there thinkin' this guy is making a fortune sticking his finger - well, you know where. Hope the money makes up for the working conditions.

    At least it is a bit better than the proctologist.
    Can you just imagine what kind of person would WANT to be a proctologist, then still want to be in the same room with him?

    Suggest Terazosin HCL to your doctor. One tiny capsule at bedtime makes it much easier to pee.

    Reminds me of a joke--both doctor and car related.

    So this guy went to college, became a doctor, then became a proctology specialist, all because his dad was a proctologist, wanted his son to 'take over the business' when the time came. But the guy was a pistonhead, loved cars, loved working on them, and decided, as soon as his dad passed away, he'd go to school to become a mechanic. So after a couple decades, his dad retires, and a few years later, his dad dies. So the guy sold the practice, and used the money to pay for a Voc-tech to teach him to be a mechanic. After a couple years, he's taking his final written and live demonstration tests. He finishes up the written, and goes to the live test. The instructor shows him a car, says what the symptoms are, and the guy sets off to diagnose and repair the ailing car. He finishes up fairly quickly, and goes to the instructor. The instructor looks over the car, verifies it's running correctly, then turns to the guy and says, "I would have to say, your skill and technique are jaw-droppingly good. So in addition to the 100% for the test, I'm awarding another 100% extra credit for doing all the diagnosis and repair through the tailpipe."

    Yeah, it does.

    Am thinkin if Mo had paid a visit to one, he might still be regaling us with his "wisdom".

    Just another health issue related to insufficient beer intake.
    With beer, you'll never have any problem peeing.

    I suspect that wasn't Mo's problem.

    I don't really know. I know he had health problems related to my earlier entry. He posted about that, after which he just seemed to get rather erratic, finally posting he would no longer post but might lurk (that's from memory and may be incorrect.) I'll add that he at least in my opinion livened the place up for a while, with occasional run-ins with some and with the moderators.

    H was certainly a one-off.

    I was convinced he was a sock puppet for a long time.
    I'm currently on the fence with that issue, but still leaning that way.

    I liked him also, smart guy. Just couldn't keep his story straight, like not knowing the basics of machining while claiming to have hand built a steam train.

    Mo was okay. A few here thought he was a fake, if I recall, but that's just paranoid thinking. Back to the topic, sort of. I know a guy who said his proctologist was so good, he could check a prostate with both hands on the patients shoulders. That's skill.

    Funny, after taking a 20-foot fall, my buddy Billy Burgoyne said that that was how the ER doc checked him for internal bleeding...the doc had both hands on his ankles, though....:eek:
