Officer Cynical said...

So, he died from flatus?

"I see...so stupidity, check"

Not that Mr. Flat's father was stupid, per se, but aren't steamrollers rather slow moving vehicles?

Just sayin....

Is stupidity and/or bad luck listed in ICD 10? If so, it may very well be considered a major health risk AND could be genetic. Better check off that box on his EMR.

HAHAHA...just remembered one of the final scenes from "A Fish Called Wanda". That's probably who the dad was!

ER's Dad said...

Just remember: streamrollers don't kill people. People kill people.

Was his wife's name Patty?

I bet Chip Davis and Jackson Berkey were driving the steamroller.

Surely there's more to the story. Major illness? How? Steamroller? How? Why does patient think that being steamrolled is a major illness??? Allergy to a steamroller vs. solvent in a dry-cleaning plant? Years ago, when washing machines involved manglers, there were occasional accidents, but it was due to clumsiness, not a major illness per se. And, what child hadn't got burned occasionally when ironing their father's pajamas?

Wow, that's rough. I had steamrolleritis once but I was one of the lucky ones and antibiotics cleared it right up.

Hahahaha. Anonymous++ for the Mannheim Steamroller crack.

You really don't want to be one of the guys on skates when you play Steamrollerball.

"And my uncle was killed by a Cleveland steamer."

So, it runs in the family, then?

Some people 'simplify' questions in their minds: 'Any major illnesses' becomes 'Anything bad happen to your family'

I dreamed of that to bosses I have had.
