Valediction

Post by JeffJ » Mon Sep 13, 2010 6:02 pm

The professor surveyed the eight operating tables. Eight tables, eight bodies. Splayed thoracic and abdominal cavities with their vivisected organs glistened wetly under the operating theatre’s lights. Dialysis and perfusion equipment hummed and whirred, keeping the subjects alive.

The professor addressed his students, “You are this year’s final students; Carefully selected for your knowledge and skill. But this is the final exam and only those that can restore every organ to its rightful place within the next ninety minutes will, ahem, graduate.

“Ready? Begin.... NOW!”

The students, still somewhat groggy from the anaesthetic, began frantically fumbling for their vital organs.

Hey, moved this from Drabblenews to Drabbles, it was initially misplaced.

Good stuff.

Reminds me of Firesign Theatre's "Name That Disease" segment, one of the funniest things I ever heard. Anyone remember?

Excellent drabble, JeffJ. Thanks!

I never really wanted to be a doctor, and I really don't at this medical school!

Obviously from your sig, you are a psychiatrist. Most of whom never really wanted to be doctors.
