Friday Fun Facts – Medical Slang

Ah, the hospital. A magical place where doctors and nurses cure disease, perform complex surgeries, and from the looks of this website, use thinly veiled acronyms and slang to insult your absurd ineptitude. I’ll give you a few examples here, but you really have to check out the website to get the full experience. A lot of these would really make some good band names too.

Brothel Sprouts = Genital warts             Chocolate Hostage = Constipation

Digging for Worms = Varicose vein surgery      DUB = Damn ugly baby

Eiffel Syndrome (from “I fell” on it) = Foreign object in rectum

FLK w/ GLM = Funny looking kid with good looking mom      

FURB = Funny, unusual rectal blockage

Golden Ass = Affluent mother who treats nurses like servants

Hamburger = Train vs. pedestrian      Hole-in-one = Gunshot wound through mouth or rectum

Stream Team = Urology department       Urban Outdoorsman = Homeless person

Angel Lust = Male corpse with erection (apparently not uncommon)

Bugs in the Rug = Pubic lice         Acute Lead Poisoning = Gunshot wound

Bury the Hatchet = Leave a surgical instrument inside a patient       

Banana = Patient with jaundice

Well that about does it for me……..Here’s a good Friday Blong. Ugly Duckling – Slow the Flow.
