All F----d Up.

"pumpkin positive", which refers to the implication that a penlight shone into the patient's mouth would encounter a brain so small that the whole head would light up.

Brilliant! I like that one!

WTM. I was hoping you were going to say Situation Normal All Fouled Up. (Honest).

thanks. We have a rule about it, and it's time to enforce it, I'm afraid.

Still remember in the Hospital i worked in, in IT.
We often labled bad IT users as ID 10 T users.
The medical director saw this once written down by his name & pronounced to all in the room that he had his own code given to him by IT.

It then suddenly dawned on him what it really meant & with a smile on his face told everyone he would not be ringing up IT for a while.

He took it very well & then told myself & another Techie a lot of the medical abbrevations that he used to use.
