Overheard by the GI nurse

Hemera | Thinkstock + Scrubs

Nurses claim these are actual comments from patients undergoing 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. “Oh boy, that was sphincterrific!”

5. “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?”

6. “You know, in West Virginia, we’re now legally married.”

7. “Any sign of the trapped miners, Chief?”

8. “You put your left hand in, you take your left hand out. You do the Hokey Pokey…”

9. “Hey! Now I know how a Muppet feels!”

10. “If your hand doesn’t fit, you must acquit!”

11. “Hey, Doc, let me know if you find my dignity.”

12. “You used to be an executive at Enron, didn’t you?”

And our personal favorite…

13. “Could you write me a note for my wife, saying that my head is not, in fact, up there?”

Do these ring true for you? What would you add to this list?
