Funny Medical Commercials: Men Who Can’t Pee

Nothing like a little prostate humor to brighten your day, huh? (Well, not little prostate… more like “some humor about enlarged prostates.”)

For the most part, has remained largely free of advertisements and commercials. But every once in a while, we come across a commercial that is funny and related to healthcare. This one was posted by Dr. Wade Grindle in our Medical Humor Community.

Well check out this Spanner commercial. (We have no relationship with this company and we have no personal experience the device… we just think their commercial is funny).

Anyway, check it out.

Also, check out Dr. Wade Grindle’s medical humor blog.

BLS Humor – How Not To Do Chest Compressions

I saw this Basic Life Support Manual on a student’s desk. BLS humor - chest compressions or back compressions?

I thought it was funny when 3 or 4 people stood around trying to decipher the graphic on the cover. I’m just hoping this guy was a drowning victim or someone with severe trauma… either way, not the best graphic to use for students.

A Few Good Nurses (and Interns)

Without question, the most famous quote from A Few Good Men came from the dialogue between Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise in the court room. Well, here’s a similar conversation, but this time, in an ER: Nursing Humor - A Few Good Men

ER nurse: You want answers?

Intern: I think I’m entitled to them.

ER nurse: You want answers?

Intern: I want the truth!

ER nurse: You want the truth?! You can’t handle the truth! Son, we work in an overcrowded ER that has patients in the halls. And those halls have to be cleared to make room for more sick people. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Mr. Brand New Intern? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for weekly hour requirements and you curse the Policy. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that the speed with which patients are admitted, while inconvenient for you, probably saves lives.

And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives…You...

Biology Humor – I’m Just Sayin’

So, let me get this straight… You actually wanted me to consume your product? Biology humor - Endosperm reference on whole wheat cereal not so appetizing

Yeah, sure. I know what endosperm is. I had biology and botany before medical school, but c’mon. Did you actually pass your marketing courses?

You must have graduated one notch above this guy:

nursing home humor - real photo, real bad marketing

‘Twas the Call Before Christmas

Here’s an account of the events that led up to the reporting of Kris Kringle’s medical record:

‘Twas the call before Christmas – by

‘Twas the call before Christmas, when all through the floors
Not a patient was restless, not even Old Claus
The nurses were standing at the station, just chatting
each avoiding the word “quiet”, (…you know what could happen)

Med students were dismissed home early for the night
with pages of Cecil’s or Sabiston’s to get just right
And my resident in her long coat, and I in my scrubs
had just resigned our bodies to cold, cafe grub.

When from our pagers, there beeped such a note,
We flew from the lounge heading straight for the code
not the elevators (too slow), I hit the steps
time for some aerobics, then A-C-L-S.

The door to the unit slammed ‘gainst the wall
deepening a dent where it had hit before
When, what to my wondering eyes should manifest
But a pint-sized doc compressing a...

Puffy the Respiratory Therapist – Holiday Medical Humor Song

OK… Time for a little holiday humor.

This time, though, we’re going to poke funny at our respiratory therapy friends… especially those who still, ironically, smoke. If that’s you, take this song as motivation to quit.

“Puffy the RT” is a GiggleMed original put to the “tune” of Frosty the Snowman. You will notice “tune” is in quotes. That’s simply because of my mad skills in singing. I had to channel my inner South Philly.

If any of you have singing skills or think it would be funny to sing this song as a group… make a video and send it our way. (But if you use these lyrics, you must give attribution to with something like “Lyrics by” or “Inspired by the Lyrics from”.)

Medical Humor: Santa Not The Picture Of Health

As with most journalism, for the moment, we’re all gonna have to say “Screw HIPAA”… has come across some disturbing medical records from one of the world’s most well-known personalities:

Medical Humor at Santa's Expense

Let’s take a look to see some of the highlights (er, lowlights) from this man’s medical profile.

Obesity: January 3rd, 2001, Kris Kringle (his alias, I suppose) went to see his PCP, Dr. Klump, and is told he needs to lose at least fifty pounds to be within a safe weight range.

Diabetes: December 20th, 2004, Dr. Klump runs some tests and determines that Kris has very high blood sugar levels. The doctor urges him to be good this holiday season, and not indulge on snacks loaded with carbohydrates. On December 26th, 2004, Kris was admitted to the hospital after a night of cookie eating, complaining of dizziness.

Sleep Apnea: Mrs. Kringle calls Dr. Klump on March 15th, 2005 and asks what can be done about her husband’s snoring, as it worsens...

Healthcare Professional Hypochondriasis Exacerbated By “Cute” Doodles

Funny medical art - Not so cute when I saw all of the disorders she labeled me with

So… my daughter has a very cute habit of drawing pictures and leaving them on my desk for when I get home. Very cute… until lately… when I started to see all of the medical disorders these renditions of Daddy had embedded in them.

Like this one (above)… It’s cute… it’s funny… until you see that (a) I’m obese, (b) I have a DVT, (c) I have a right facial droop, (d) probable sleep apnea, and (e) a frozen shoulder. Oh… and I probably have gas.

Yeesh… kids these days. I blame the internet.

GI Humor Video Relinked

This colonoscopy humor video was featured on GiggleMed back in the day (in 2008 or something). Anyway, I’m relinking it, because it is truly a classic…

A heavy, rough-around-the-edges nurse, a disco ball, and a colonoscope… Just think of the possibilities… The look on Damon Wayans’ face is priceless.

Patients already say some funny things during conscious sedation, what if Lou Rawls was putting you under like this? Imagine the things you’d say.

Want a disco ball for your next endoscopy? Get Your Scope On.
