Put It In Here



A 23 year old female (moderately attractive) came in for headache, fever, chills, and stiff neck. Obviously needed to rule out meningitis.

So when it was time for the spinal tap....there was an odd tattoo to her lower back.

It had a sign that said "Put It In Here" and an arrow pointing down. And it wasn't pointing to the area of the lumbar spine that the needle was supposed to go in!

Her parents must be so proud.

@Anon: if her parents have been reading that tattoo, then the tattoo is the least serious issue to be concerned about.

That's the kind of tattoo that you need to picture on a little, old lady.

"Hey, Grandma, what does your "insert here" tramp stamp mean?"

Please, continue to put it there, exclusively, because at least you aren't reproducing.

I love it! Yes, that is so true.

Trampy will probably figure out that reproducing thing one of these days...and/or come to her senses and get it removed.

I'm guessing that you didn't follow the directions.

Lovely. I am sure when she is old and wrinkled she will still love the tat. Not!

ERP said...

Hmmm. Moderately attractive? You got her number after the LP right?
