Rip Off Doctor

So, it seems Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick and misguidedly called a doctor (she'd apparently seen a thread on EF).

Not only did the doctor turn up without bothering to assertain the actual problem. Not only did he fail to notice that the "patient" was actually an inanimate object. Not only did he prescribe unnecessary drugs. But he had the temerity to tell Polly that he'd be back the next day with the bill (no doubt including more extortionate travelling time charges).

It's outrageous.

Re: Rip Off Doctor

Excuse me Mr Mod but not only is this in the wrong area of the forum but it is also neither informative, useful or relevant.

Additionally, this song has no connection to Switzerland.

I thank you.

Probably just a case of I said hello, dolly,......well, hello, dolly
It's so nice to have you back where you belong
You're lookin' swell, dolly.......i can tell, dolly
You're still glowin'...you're still crowin'...you're still goin' strong
I feel that room swayin'......while the band's playin'
One of your old favourite songs from way back when
So..... take her wrap, fellas.......find her an empty lap, fellas
Dolly'll never go away again.

A question I frequently ask myself.

However in this instance I do know the answer:

Re: Rip Off Doctor

At least the doctor came!
What about Pretty Poll?
The doctor refused to visit her because of her, frankly embarrassing, ailment!

(Not very PC I'm afraid)

Chin, Chin Chinaman
Chin, Chin Chinaman had a penny doll.
He washed it and dressed it
And called it Pretty Poll.
He sent for the doctor but the doctor didn't come
Because it had a pimple on its
Bum, bum, bum!

Re: Rip Off Doctor

I have a Rip Off Doctor. A doctor whose specialism is the painless removal of plasters. Worth his weight in gold, he is.

Re: Rip Off Doctor

Actually, this has got me thinking now . Remember the movie picture thread, where we had to guess movie titles from abstract pictures etc? How about a "guess the nursery rhyme" thread, where one has to identify the rhyme written as a day to day situation/complaint in normal prose.

Such as :
"What's with the sudden surge in rodent infestations recently? Twice I spotted a little blighter yesterday, just around lunchtime"

Re: Rip Off Doctor

I think it's a case of someone, probably Polly, having unprotected sex, and now trying to get a doctor to prescribe a morning after pill.

Re: Rip Off Doctor

At least he came quick, quick, quick.

In the new NHS version she says this will back you better, yes it will, will, will. So maybe the pill is actually a placebo and is trying to reenforce the placebo effect?

There is a strange fat man around harassing young ladies, but appears to be scared of young men, so please don't travel alone.

Strange cause he's fat or fat cause he's strange or is his girth irrelevant totally?
