Local Doctors Refuse to Take Care of Nickelback, Cite Do No Harm
Detroit, MI - On Saturaday 3:14pm, Nickleback’s tour bus crashed into a herd of rouge elephants that had escaped the now abandoned Detroit City Zoo. All four members were brought to a local ER last Saturday. Their wait times exceeded 13 hours in the trauma bay as lines stretched 8 miles out, which is typical for Detroit.
Finally when an ER doc decided to see them, citing do no harm and it was obvious Nickelback wouldn’t die, it was determined that 3 of the members of the Canadian band needed a CT scan.
Radiologist Dr. Curt Mason refused to read the scans. “I made a pledge, a Hippocratic oath to the world, to do no harm. The only time their music should be played is during a zombie apocalypse, as a last ditch effort to kill off the zombies.”
After the scan was completed the transporter left them in the hallway while he went out for a smoke break and eat dinner. “I’d rather eat whatever I was supposed to bring to the lab than listen to another song of Nickelback.”
Finally the surgeon that was consulted had the best plan of care. “I’ll perform an emergent thyroidectomy, the chances the thyroid was injured in the crash is essentially zero, but the chance that I could accidentally damage the recurrent laryngeal nerve rendering [Lead Singer Chad Koeger] permanently hoarse, THAT would help the world the most.”
Only one employee disagreed but he had to leave during the ethics vote to watch a Vin Diesel movie.

Prologue – teas inspired by literary classics. To be brewed according to George Orwell’s 11 golden rules for the perfect cup of tea and sipped alongside snacks from The Artists’ and Writers’ Cookbook.
Comment #1: I would love to have all these tea blends based on books. That would just be my perfect life. Perfect life. If anyone wants to buy me a Christmas gift—this is a great idea.
Comment #2: Have you all read George Orwell’s guides on the perfect cup of tea? No. GO READ THEM. They’re really quite lovely.
Lastly, tea — unless one is drinking it in the Russian style — should be drunk without sugar. I know very well that I am in a minority here. But still, how can you call yourself a true tea-lover if you destroy the flavour of your tea by putting sugar in it? It would be equally reasonable to put in pepper or salt. Tea is meant to be bitter, just as beer is meant to be bitter. If you sweeten it, you are no longer tasting the tea, you are merely tasting the sugar; you could make a very similar drink by dissolving sugar in plain hot water.
I also just love everything he says about tea. :)
I think I’m going to go make myself a cup of tea right now—even though I’ve already had about 6 today already.
Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”
*Crying with laughter*
ITS IN IAMBIC PENTAMETER. SWEET JESUS THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE THING.
THIS IS THE MOST BRILLIANT POSY I HAVE EVER SEEN.
Guys, that’s not only Iambic, that’s a fucking sonnet. *claps*
I love this so muchSource: humortrain
“I am pro-life,” she told a University of Texas at Brownsville crowd on Tuesday. “I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.”
“This isn’t about protecting abortion,” Davis explained in the same appearance. “It’s about protecting women. It’s about trusting women to make good decisions for themselves and empowering them with the tools to do that.”
Anti-choicers are violently pro-life, right up to the second a child is born. It’s heartening to see Wendy Davis taking them on like this.
Wendy Davis for president.
She makes me so happy.
