What's Up, Doc?

Whenever I go into a store to buy something embarrassing (such as fungus medicine or hemorrhoid cream), I buy as many items as I can to hide that item from all. But having worked in retail for 2 1/2 years I am beginning to believe I am in the minority. Quite often someone will come up to me and ask where the hemorrhoid cream is because he has a hemorrhoid the size of a grapefruit. (Usually I hear even more details but I'll leave those out.) Or someone will tell me about a fungus on their big toe that is starting to spread, and it's painful and green and itchy. DO I LOOK LIKE A DOCTOR TO YOU? First of all if I were a doctor, I would not be working on Fridays, I would be golfing. Secondly, I do not get paid that much, no where near that much. That is why doctors get paid so much: to hear and see gross and disgusting things. I do not! So please keep it between you and your doctor. (This story courtesy of Kincade.)

Thanks for the picture of the hemorrhoid cream. Please keep your eyes peeled for more celebrities that are in rehab: Kirsten Dunst and Eva Mendes. Thank you.

Well, at least they don't ask for help in the application.
