Colonoscopy humor

Colonoscopies are no joke, but these comments during the exam were quite humorous…..

A physician claimed that the following are actual comments made by his patients (predominately male) while he was performing their colonoscopies:

1. ‘Take it easy, Doc. You’re boldly going where no man has gone before!’
2. ‘Find Amelia Earhart yet?’
3. ‘Can you hear me NOW?’
4. ‘Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?’
5. ‘You know, in Arkansas , we’re now legally married.’
6. ‘Any sign of the trapped miners, Chief?’
7. ‘You put your left hand in, you take your left hand out…’
8. ‘Hey! Now I know how a Muppet feels!’
9. ‘If your hand doesn’t fit, you must quit!’
10. ‘Hey Doc, let me know if you find my dignity.’
11. ‘You used to be an executive at Enron, didn’t you?’
And the best one of all:
12. ‘Could you write a note for my wife saying that my head is not up there?’

  1. True story: I had mine a couple of years ago. In the recovery room the nurse asked if I had any questions. I asked if they found the remote as every time I fart, the channel changes. She rolled her eyes and said “No, we didnt find anything up there.” I looked at my wife and said “See, I told you my head isnt up there.” The nurse set me up for the joke and didnt even know it.
    One bit of advice: On your way home after a ‘scope’, never trust a fart. I’m just saying.

  2. at work we ordered some fibre-optic tools for a project I am working on, turns out that the cheapest place for them was a medical supply and development company. I didn’t dare ask the sales rep what it is normally used for.
