Lighten up Mondays.

During a lecture for medical students, the professor listed the two best qualities of a doctor to be:

  • the ability to conquer revulsion; and
  • the need for keen powers of observation.

He illustrated this by stirring a messy substance with his finger and then licking his finger clean.  Then he called a student to the front and made him do the same.

Afterward the professor remarked,

“You conquered your revulsion, but your powers of observation are not very good.  I stirred with my forefinger, but I licked my middle finger.”
