Charlie Chaplain’s Tales
I once came across a patient in the Infirmary who was obviously in great discomfort and pain.
He said that he had been in a dreadful accident at work and that his “scrotum” was badly crushed.
Continuing, he told me that the surgeons had performed a delicate and intricate operation. Amazingly, they were able to piece together the crushed remnants of his scrotum and wrap wire around it to hold it in place.
The doctors were pleased with the operation and had said , with time, he should recover completely.”
I wished him well but couldn’t help wincing at the terrible ordeal that he had undergone…… so I said to one of the Staff Nurses on my way out of the Ward, “That poor guy, getting his testicles crushed like that”
“Yeh, his scrotum I mean”
“Scrotum? He’s in with a crushed sternum!”
