Doctors' Opinion of Financial Bail-out Package:
The Allergists voted to scratch it, and the
Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.
The orthopedists wanted to cast it in a different light.
The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the
Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve, and the
Obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a misconception.
The Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.
The Pathologists yelled, 'Over my dead body!' while the
Pediatricians said, 'Oh, grow up!'
The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, the
Radiologists could see right through it, and the
Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.
The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the
Plastic Surgeons said, 'This puts a whole new face on the matter.'
The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the
Urologists felt the scheme wouldn't hold water.
The Anesthesiologists thought the idea was a knockout, and the
Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.
In the end, the Proctologists left the decision up to the buttholes in Washington to air it out.
