You know what we haven't done in a while?

We haven't had our resident medical expert* Dr. Possum come for a visit!

And it has nothing to do with any lawsuits that may or may not have been filed!

SO, if you have a question related to medical matters, or a question related to non-medical matters, and you would like them answered by a semi-arboreal omnivorous marsupial with a prehensile tail and opposable toe thumbs, well, then, YOU'VE come to the RIGHT PLACE!

Just leave your question (if it's a serious question, he will even answer those, and do so in a serious manner) in the comments below and Dr. Possum will be happy to dispense advice and wisdom to you!

*Disclaimer: Dr. Possum does not actually live in your computer, nor is he an expert on anything, medical or otherwise. Therefore, you should use caution in asking Dr. Possum anything, especially if his answers involve pouring gasoline on a fire, or on that peculiar rash you have.

Dr. Possum

It hurts when I do this—[makes motion raising right arm over head].
I’m hoping for a prescription that means I can’t start back on my diet.
What do you think?

Hmm. It appears you have youngmanitis, for which the only cure (short of amputation) is a 500 calorie a day diet. I am so sorry.

I’ll get back to you—to quote Jack Benny---“I’m thinking, I’m thinking.”

The medical answer I always heard to such a question was "OK, don't do that"

I think that was the same thing the coach of the Rangers said when they gave up yet another goal.

So you see my point, then.

I think the solution is to eat more ice cream.

With all due respect, while I appreciate opinions from the lay public, I must object to the idea that Jim's problem can be solved by eating more ice cream.

He needs to strictly limit his intake of good food so he will forget about his silly arm pain. Only when he has overcome this disability will he be able to truly enjoy a good ice cream cone, and quit complaining about his arm and being a big baby.

::grumble:: I _still_ don't see why he can't eat the ice cream with his other hand. As long as he isn't trying to sit on his free pony at the time.

Oh, and Dr. Professor Smarty-Pants, it's not like Peter Laviolette has made much out of his #2 rated Hurricanes, either. [/cheap shot]
