Crazy mixup #4

Blah blah blah an unnecessarily complex setup story involving somebody with free fluid in the peritoneal space, which ends with my registrar finding me lying in the patient's cubicle, my only visible movement being the feeble drumming of one of my fingers upon the floor.

"What are you doing?" shrieked my registrar, "I asked you do do an ascitic tap!"

"Oh!" said I, "I thought you said an asthenic tap."

Am I starting to see a trend across your last few blogs?

Is it true that Simon Crean has *tapped* you on the shoulder in the last week?

The bigger picture here, if we're talking trends, is the firestorm of punning regarding pathological specimen sampling which is certain to break out across the interwebs ANY DAY NOW.

As for "Clotted" Crean, I won't be commenting on our relationship.
