Pirate’s of the ER… Dead Man’s Pocket

Another blogger (our favorite med blog intoxiquée) recently asked a question not too long ago regarding the amount of attention that we medical people give to the type and condition of a patient’s underwear in the ER. Of course we reassured her that, aside from the odd elderly man in tangas, and despite what our collective mothers have always said, we rarely ever notice. Personal items, however, that we find on patients… such as guns, knives, bongs, crack pipes, 3 year old condoms, penis shaped lighters… well, they are ALWAYS interesting.

Here’s what was in tonight’s I’m too drunk to drive, so I’ll steal this motorcycle patient’s pocket…

Oh, he didn’t really die as the headline suggests… he simply got 20 staples in his scalp and a matching set of handcuffs, but he might be in a little hot water when that dude at the strip club finds out who stole his Harley.

    Too damn funny!

    Hey, what’s that lug nut doing in thar?

    And hey, somebody must’ve sold him some bad weed, that dry leafy stuff and roots don’t look like no pot!

    $1.38 that’s all he had? I’m curious to know what y’all found in his wallet.

    I particularly like how you strategically placed that dried leaf over the picture of the stripper. Was that done on purpose?

    Is that a coca leaf?….

    yep… I moved the leaf over the name of the strip club, those girls don’t need any extra advertising, we get enough business from “Blow-Job Bluff” as it is.

    You actually found a use for a red oak leaf! I’m impressed. :)

    From something I see there I have to wonder if this fellow made an enemy down around Allendale. Looks like one of the local voodoo practitioners may have put a root (pron: ruet) on this guy! :D
