A few years ago I was working for a company that made a product used in Labor & Delivery areas of hospitals. Every now and then I would have to go to hospitals to do troubleshooting when they wanted to make the customer feel good. Somehow it always calmed people when an "Engineer" got sent. One of the hospitals I visited quite frequently just to check up on because they had the first installation of a new product. They used to laugh there and tell me that I could use one of the beds to sleep if I wanted to stay the night as I was sometimes there pretty late. My usual response was to thank them, but say no because I was afraid I'd wake up with someone trying to give me a pelvic exam.
Of course I was joking... but apparently someone in Britain really wants that to happen:
Of course all of you are probably saying to yourselves the same thing the doctor did... a man doesn't have a cervix. You're absolutely right, but the problem is the patient disagrees.
H/T to Tongue Tied for this one. Sadly, I would have thought the British had a bit more sense than this.
