The blog was stimulated by the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia social media campaign to encourage viewers to imagine a "World Without Pathologists." Gee, I often dreamed of that when working in the transfusion service lab and later, when teaching. Just kidding, sort of.
THE FUN STUFF
"World Without Pathologists" has two videos so far, and they made me laugh.
Here are a few more videos that I hope will tickle your funny bone.
First, take-offs on 'Call Me Maybe' by Canadian Carly Rae Jepsen, which is up for a 2013 Grammy as Song of the Year.
- Call Me Maybe - Student nurse parody (3:17)
Many health professionals use XtraNormal to produce fun videos that highlight the in-jokes of inter-professional relationships. Examples:
- Hematologist vs Pathologist (2:09)
- Surgeon vs Pathologists (3:11)
Very funny, give it a chance. Part 2 has its moments too.
Hope you get a few chuckles from these inside jokes. If you know of similar videos, please let me know.
The blog's title comes from one of my favorite Beatle ditties. I live in Edmonton, the northernmost city in North America but we are one of Canada's sunniest cities, getting more than 17 hrs. of sun per day at summer solstice.
And just because this clever remix with Rita Hayworth dancing in 10 of her movies is fabulous:
- Staying alive (Bee Gees)
- Staying alive (from Saturday Night Fever)
Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukkah, Happy Holidays to all.
