Grand Rounds Here August 24!

Next week, I'm going to be popping my Grand Rounds hosting cherry. My lifelong dreams have been to eat the world's largest hoagie, manage a beautiful country singer, be a monorail conductor, run out on the field during a baseball game, be a contestant on the Gong Show, own the Dallas Cowboys, and finally, to host Grand Rounds.... so you can imagine I'm pretty excited!

In keeping with the theme of my blog, next week's Grand Rounds theme will be Humor in Medicine. Please submit any blog posts that make you laugh (or are otherwise enjoyable). I will be reading these posts and keeping a tally of the number of times I go "ha!" When I host Grand Rounds, I will post the links in order of how many times each one made me go "ha!" and will provide you with a rough estimate of how many times you will go "ha!" during your reading of the blog posts. It's all quite scientific.

How to submit: Please send your entries to fizzziatrist(at) (note the three Z's). Put Grand Rounds in the subject line, and include the URL of the post in the message with a sentence or two about the post’s topic. Please include approximately how many times you think I will go "ha!" while reading the post.

Deadline is Sunday August 22nd at 3 p.m. Eastern time. I encourage you to be a nerd and submit early!


  1. But Dr. Grumpy already HAS a blog!

  2. We got more gongs than the break-dancing robot that caught on fire.

  3. I submit your recent 10 types Primary Health Care patients cartoon. It's been up in our ED all week since I printed it off.

    Last night I think every single one was represented and we were actually in tears of laughter over how bang on it was with our last patient of the night who developed arm pain as a "reaction" to painting her fingernails.

  4. Haha, thanks, but I think it might be lame to link to my own blog..

  5. I know I'm a little late, but I just got around to catching up on blogs! I'd recommend just about anything that Dr Grumpy posts and I thought that I'd pitch in a couple of mine. I work as a receptionist in an outpatient clinic located in the heart of a very large, fairly-inner-city teach hospital...I don't know what it is about this place, but it brings out the crazies like you wouldn't believe!
