Friday Frivolity – Sometimes Choosing A Name Requires Compromise


Best friends graduated from medical school at the same time and decided that in spite of two different specialties, they would open a practice together to share office space and personnel.

Dr. Smith was the psychiatrist, and Dr. Jones was the proctologist; they put up a sign reading: Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones: Hysterias and Posteriors.

The town council was livid and insisted they change it.

The docs changed it to read: Schizoids and Hemorrhoids.

This was also not acceptable, so they again changed the sign to read Catatonics and High Colonics – no go.

Next, they tried Manic Depressives and Anal Retentives – thumbs down again.

Then came Minds and Behinds – still no good.

Another attempt resulted in Lost Souls and Butt Holes – unacceptable again!

So, they tried Nuts and Butts – no way.

Freaks and Cheeks – still no good.

Loons and Moons –  forget it…

Almost at their wit’s end, the docs finally came up with:

Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones – Specializing in Odds and Ends.

Everybody loved it.
