I'm not sure I'd want to search inside



This was the book that was being prominently displayed at the bookstore at work today.

It is a legitimate medical textbook, and although I did not buy a copy, I sure did appreciate that somebody at the bookstore has a wicked sense of humour.

The "Search Inside" is a great touch.

SO NICE to see a bookseller with a keen sense of wit. That tome would have come in handy when you were 'tearing a new one' for Ticketmaster yesterday. Then again I'm kinda glad you didn't exactly use surgical precision on them either...

teehee!

I remember browsing the magazine section at the college library long ago and discovering a tasty periodical called Cleft Palate Monthly.

Yours is funnier.

They should've inserted the word "deep" just for kicks.

Amazon sure knows how to put the finishing touches on things, Beth.

I'm with you, Sean, a scalpel will always be too good for those bastards Sean. I would prefer to use my bare hands.

I have to admit I'm pretty glad I made you giggle, Mel.

And that I drew a teehee from you, Justrun. Damn, I'm good.

Hi Volly, welcome! I dunno, Cleft Palate Monthly certainly has a ring to it, although I admit nothing much tops a colon, rectum and anus.

hahaha - they should INSERTED the word "deep". This appeals to the South Park boy within me, Beckeye.

Must one put on latex gloves before beginning their search inside the book?

Somehow I feel that would be the appropriate etiquette.

You never know what you'll find until you search inside.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Latex gloves and a delicate touch, Urban Blonde. No word on whether a reach-around is required.

I only hope it's not a hamster or something, Dr M.

Someone is having way too much fun for retail.

kelly said...

unfortunately that reminds me of my time working part time at a vet clinic...we wore gloves up to our shoulders for good reason

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It's nice to see a sense of humour in retail, Will, although actually, considering that this was a medical school bookstore, maybe they didn't mean it as a joke.


Oh yes, I've worn those shoulder length gloves too, Kelly, pregnancy-checking cattle. Aren't they the most stylish thing ever?

that book could also be filed under the category of pre-toiletries

justacoolcat said...

I think "And Anus" would be a better selling point.

Bubs said...

Owwww...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

And I think it would make a pretty fascinating bathroom read as well, Gifted, although the chapters might be a little long.

"And Anus" pretty much tops everything, in my books, JustA. The smart money would put those words on all packaging.

I'll bet proctologists hear that all the time, Bubs.
