Nurse Quacktitioner Arrives

Yesterday after supervision (a Cambridge term for tutorial; no, the University hasn't employed people to walk around us holding whips to make sure we study. Yet. --Ed) I was rummaging around in my pigeonhole, trying to get my supervisor's ringing voice out of my ear (if you must know, his exact words were something along the lines of "You NUMBSKULL! What do you mean, you DON'T know which lipoxins are formed by 15-lipoxygenase? How old are you, eight?!" --Ed) when my hands hit a rather fat envelope. It was suspiciously unmarked; I thought one of the surgeons offended by this post had finally sent me a bomb or a remnant from an anal fistulectomy or something.

So imagine my surprise when, fifteen minutes later, after I'd finished donning my HazMat suit and was carefully slicing open the envelope, this fell out:


This is, of course, one of Mattel's now-discontinued Nurse Quacktitioner dolls, made famous by HospitalPhoenix's blogging. And a lovely surprise it is, too.

But who is it from? The envelope was unmarked, except for a postcode which I will not disclose, and is it a gift, or a temporary loan? Is it a Valentine's Day hint from one of the hot nurses I met recently on my hospital rotations?

If it IS a gift, thanks to whoever sent it! It's lovely, and it made my day. Donald Trump is also overjoyed; he's been developing quite the crush on NurseQuack for some time now.

If it isn't a gift (or if it's filled with anthrax or E.Coli or gunpowder or something--Ed): Alright, who's the wise guy?

My...you finally get to have a hot nurse you can take to bed. Just remember to put all the stuffing back in after you're done. *evil grin*

Jason, you do know nursequack is only 2 inches long?

JY said...

Hoppy Valentine's Day, you sick or sad boys!

Yo'mama (instead of Yoyo-Ma?)

"Jason, you do know nursequack is only 2 inches long?"

Ahem. If you have managed to get my insinuation then you wouldn't have made this comment. *wink*

Angry Medic: Just a joke old pal. Happy V-day with Nursie over there!

Dr. Deborah Serani said...

What fun post to read!!!

Anonymous said...

it was from me!! muahahahahahaha!!!!!

The Angry Medic said...

Anonymous: aHA! You're HospitalPhoenix, aren't you?

Thanks for the pointer...I didn't see the post on HP's blog til after I posted here. And yes, NurseQuack's height did surprise me. But Donald Trump still loves her :)

Carmelo: Firstly, you're ALIVE! Secondly, whoops. I had NO IDEA anyone who read this would actually have experience at HazMat suits :P

Calavera: I KNOW! I was really really happy *gurgles in ecstasy* it was HP after all. We'd discussed it before, and he gave us a clue in that comment thread when he said he was going to post something, and you thought it was that organ he was carrying around, remember?

Cheeky one, isn't he.

Bohemian: my response exactly. Having a NurseQuack is great! What a great guy HP is.

(And yes, it was HP, btw!)

Jason: EWWWWWW *loses lunch*

Heh. I know what you meant, you dirty dirty boy you. But NurseQuack isn't for ME, she's for Donald Trump. He'd kill me if I so much as touched her. Hope you had a great V-Day too ma homie.

JY: what the...? We are neither sick nor sad. Brain-damaged, maybe, but that's not our faults. Hic.

Dr Deb Serani: Aww thanks! Everyone needs a breather from time to time. Especially medics prone to brain damage like me... *sniff*

Nicholas: I HAVE been reading your blog, you goon. Check your comments! Took all that time and effort typing up such an astute and intelligent one, too. Hmph.

Calavera said...

Angry, I GOT ONE TOO!!!!

Dan said...

Nathan said...

I want one. Bad.

The Angry Medic said...

Calavera: You DID? Woohoo! Fun isn't she? And she made the BritMeds too!

Nathan: Aww, you poor thing. Go over to HP's and send him an email. If you're willing to give him a postal address, he just might be nice enough.

JustCallMeJo said...

<---this is me with my jaw dropping

Wonder if they have those stateside... :D

Cal said...

She made the Britmeds indeed! Whoot, she's more popular in the blogosphere than the two of us put together...
