Never shake a proctologist's hands


Never shake a proctologist's hands
8 April 2014

Call me crazy, but there are just some places I don’t want to go. 

Shaking the hands of a proctologist, is one of those places.

I know where his fingers have been.  And I don’t like it.  Not even a little bit.

Now, I’m sure that in the interest of hygiene and safety, he wears a glove.

But still.

I ain’t going there.

Ironically, I don’t have a problem with gynae’s.  And lord alone knows what they get up to in a regular average day at the office.

But perhaps most baffling of all, is this – if you look at the entire human body, then your scope for medical specialising is rather large. 

There’s cardiothoracic, endocrinology, orthopaedics, gynaecology, dermatology, fertility, haematology, pulmonology, pathology, podiatry, psychiatry, oncology, gastroenterology, neurology, immunology.

Actually, to be fair, the list seems endless.  A whole bunch of specialising fields all ending in “ology” or “try”.

What could possibly possess someone to decide, “Hey!  I’d like to make a study of human rectums.  The anus has always fascinated me”?  Could someone please explain?  Help me make sense of it all.

Cause think about – you don’t just become a proctologist by chance.  You first become a regular doctor.  And then, if I understand correctly, you fine tune your field.  Deciding to specialise in proctology, incurs another few years of studying.  Butt holes to be exact.  With the odd bit of colon thrown in for good measure.

Yes, I do find this hard to understand.  To fathom.  To grasp.

For me, nice and functional though the sphincter is, I certainly wouldn’t want to become that much better acquainted with it.

Does this “ring” a bell for anyone else?
