License plate

I saw a car yesterday with the Vanity license plate:


I'm sure anyone in medicine thinks of the same thing I do when I see that acronym: irritable bowel syndrome.

I'm assuming whoever bought that license plate has those initials? I wonder if anyone has clued them in.  Or maybe they really do have irritable bowel syndrome and are proud.


  1. That's kinda like when my dad uses the acronym MSM to mean mainstream media. I don't have it in me to tell him the other meaning.

  2. lol...a friend of mine used to work for a medical advertising company called GSW. Does anyone in medicine not look at that and think "gun shot wound?"

  3. And I have a patient who named her daughter Malena...
